  1. I had the opportunity to shoot this event which was held in Virginia Beach this past weekend. The weather was super hot and humid but the play and facilities made it all worthwhile. All images made with the D300, 300 f/2.8 and the 1.4x tele.....

    Brooks, these are very nice. So sharp and great color! Great timing on number 2. What makes this shot is your being so low yourself. Very well done.

    Wow, they're impressive...I love the way you caught the intensity of the players and have them looking at the ball.
