well got a free ticket so i took the camera and 300mm F4 and 1.7 TC

the game started at 715PM so i didn't get much time with the TC on..... LOL

- I was not allowed to have a mono pod so these are all hand held at 300 or 500mm and all wide open at F4 or F6.7

- sorry about the noise, only choice to get some kinda shutter speed.....

- Exif should be in the file for you too look at it.

1. easy out.. 1/125 @ f6.3 300mm

IMHO the camera is focusing much better then it was, those that where out of focus where my fault for not having the focus point in the right spot lol

again sorry for the noise i couldn't sharpen much because of it

Constructive C&C welcome

Some really nice shots...really like the second one, but will say the "proof" stamp really takes away from previewing the pics.

Andrew-

That's some serious ponies out of that v6-11.2 in the quarter! Do you have any shots of the plumbing under the hood?

Looks like a "fun" project, Andrew. Good doumentary shots too.

What is the torque and hp numbers for this baby?!?!?

no clue, it once dynoed at 456 RWHP and 509 RWTQ @ 15psi.... but that was before the better heads and better turbo setup and was only running low 12's

0-60 = 3.1

0-100 = 7.1

1/8 mile was 7.1 @100.x with 1.83 60 foot

so it some where around 600-700 at the motor

Here goes:

1, Pop fly, nothing special
2, Sorry the umps arse was in your way
3, Crop tighter or get closer
4, Cheesecake, who doesn't like that?
5, no action, nothing special
6, nice shot
7, continuation of a nice shot
8, snap shot, nothing special
9-11 nice sequence

To improve, the d300s will help with the noise, longer faster glass so you don't have to crop as much, and look for the action. Base ball is pretty predicable after the ball is hit, especially in little league when the kids call it out for you ("Man on first, plays at second")

thanks closer was not really an option as it is a pro ball game..... and cropping tighter looked to noisy for me but i'm picky lol

thanks for the input
