    Tried to straighten horizons in post.

    All shots thru the fence...couldn't get field access, fence was high..no stepladder. Rain, then it stopped. I almost wanted to pack and go, but stayed. Nikon D300 and 300 f/2.8VR.

    Wow...I don't know how you guys do it...to get these facial expressions. I think my problem when I shoot baseball is that I want to watch the game and by the time a good play is made...I've missed it.

    Jeff...these are really really good. I don't see problems with the fence at all.

    Good job buddy!

    shots 2 and 3 are my favorite .... GREAT job here jeff these are all PERFECT examples of good TTF technique !!! Field access isn't everything and honestly i would be more than happy with results like this :)

    Thanks the kind words, Seneca.
    I missed a GREAT play today. My daughter (catcher) made a great play to catch a popped up foul ball for an out. And I was out of position. Things happen fast. I've missed several shots, that could have been great shots (assuming I got them in focus).
    I'm learning though.

    Wow.....you nailed these as well. Shooting through the fence is so difficult, but you sure showed that excellent results are surely possible. Way to go Jeff!
  9. 2&3 are great
    WB may need adjusting on some of these
  10. I really like #4. Great job on these!
