    For some reason I just LOVE ball compression shots.

    Frank's baseball on bat of course is Nikon Cafe folklore, and there have been some other rippers of late

    Here's one for me last weekend, of rugby

    Frank, they are all measured by your 1st shot, IMO the alltime best

    Thanks Randy, admittedly, I was in the right place at the right time with the right equipment set to the right exposure settings......and I was darned lucky.
     
  8. frank, #1 is very cool.... where were you positioned for that shot? By the way, how is retirement treating you?
     
  9. randy, that second softball picture has got some serious compression going on.

    Thanks Rolly, I shot the image from the end of the dugout. I was kneeling and blasted away.

    This Thursday is my last shift at the firehouse.....it will definitely be strange not driving to the firehouse every third day.

    note the bend in the bat and the ball is still dented too.

    I know...They look really bizarre....:tongue:

    I end up with quite a few in any given session.....I usually delete them, but for some reason this last go around I never did...
