  2. Sweet light, good faces and body shapes. Love that outfield background, really gives a nice small town feel to the event.
     
  3. I'm not to sure on the first one but I like the rest.
     
  4. The typical saying goes that if you're not getting peak action AND faces then it's not a good shot, which is why #3 might not be at the top even though it's well done, and #1 might fall into that as well except it becomes "artsy" and more photojournalistic.

    That said all the shots are very professional, well exposed and composed, you got several bat and ball shots (nice!), and I hope you got paid for them because you should have!! :biggrin:
     
  5. Thanks, I'm not sure on the first one, either, but the play happened pretty fast. The photo shown isn't one I submitted to the paper. The one they got, the runner is in sharp focus, and the two fielders are just slightly OOF.

    I love #3 Steve. . I though only Ty and myself shot from there. . . I just love how you can get either the players # or even name on the back of the jersey. .. I try and get as low as I can to give it a great perspective.. \

    Great series here.

    Wow, these are some stellar images. Tough to manage the shadows under the baseball caps, but you did very well. The detail and sharpness are sweet. I love the Babe Ruth swing in #6.

    These are some nice images Steve, very well composed and exposed.
    I like #3, it's a different perspective.
