Here are some more shots from the New Era Classic in Buffalo this past weekend. We didn't win any games, baseball is quite different in the US than north of the 49th, especially in terms of the playing season (some of these teams play together 10 months, with two off for HS baseball), but everybody had a blast.

Of course, Graeme has to show up at some point, here he starts to run after he gets a base hit in the second game, Friday afternoon:

Matt made a sideways slide to avoid the PB Baseball player in the first game, and arrived safe at second

I thought I'd start to learn how to do some sportraits. Graeme's grandparents drove down to the games, (very hot day for him):

Thanks Brooks.

Lens was a 300/2.8, shooting generally f/4 or f3.5, with AWB.

PP was to transfer with Photo Mechanic, open in NX2, move the histogram sliders in just a bit (I also typically adjusted exposure compensation about .17), convert to Tiff. In CS3, LAB sharpening at 154, frame, convert to sRGB, resize and save as JPG. Goes fairly quick, and I'm going to set it up as an action in the next day or so.
