    Many MLB sports announcers may say that bunting is a lost art. Here's living proof that the art is alive and well.....

  2. Nice shot Frank. I have to say that I have not seen many bunt attempts less known those that are successful. Did he make the base?

    Great shot Frank!
    The sharpness and detail of the player are just superb! I like the way the player is isolated.
    Good stuff!

    Frank, I am having a hard time trying to decide which of your shots I like most. You have started cheating by routinely posting these awesome shots making it difficult for me to decide :biggrin: . Great shooting Frank and keep hammering away!!

    Thanks everyone, I usually don't shoot in landscape orientation, but this time it worked out nicely. I didn't crop much, I think the batter will enjoy having this on his wall.

    Great shot Frank, I rarely get a reading of 2500 even ISO 400. Do you set your camera on shutter priority, aperture or manual?

    Good morning Ron, I shoot using Aperture Priority 99% of the time. I was shooting toward the sun, so I needed to tweak settings a bit and also needed to open up shadows in post. This came out alright, but someone with more post-processing skills can make this shot sing.
