Soccer from this weekend

  1. Here are a few shots from this weekend.

    1. I showed this shot to my wife. I told her this is why I needed the 200-400 zoom. For the sake of the family I would sacrifice and settle for a D700 for a couple of thousand dollars less. That way I could shoot the D700 as a second camera with my 70-200 so I could get these close shots. Her reply? My doctor said there were no broken bones and the contusions should heal in a couple of weeks.


    2. This is one of those "I nailed it" shots, at least as far as the timing of the ball.


    3. My attempt at something different. I am not real happy with this. A better angle with more of the ball visible may have worked. It is still pretty distracting. I was impressed that the 300 kept focus locked on through the net.


    4. I like the facial expressions. All that effort and the ball just rolled on by.


    6. While I was shooting the U12's a U14 Mom asked me to shoot for them. I am not sure the keeper will like this shot, but I did.


    7. After plowing over the defender from behind, this girl was already looking at the ref, who was looking at her. She got the foul.


    8. Another one of those 'if I had just been standing over there' shots. Still, I hope the keeper likes this one better.

    wow mike ... some solid shots here for sure... i've been thinking about picking up a second body myself but right now things are a bit tight ... Honestly your shots are great and i see no reason why they shouldn't start selling !!
  3. Nice work here, maybe you can spin the lens purchase as a buisness investment
  4. Thanks!

    No new lens or new bodies. That was made clear to me. :smile:
    Maybe someday when pigs fly. Until then, I think I can make due with what I have.
  5. some great shots Michael, hope you have a speedy recovery :biggrin:
  6. WOW, these are absolutely fantastic !

    These are fantastic Michael . Really good action. If I had a dime for everytime I was in the wrong spot for a shot . . .let's just say I would already have the gear you want.

    Good stuff here.
