    2) no faces but good timing?
    386589235_3g9Qh-XL.

    3) everytime I question my autofocus, I get a real sharp one:
    386589245_VYnkg-XL.

    Very nice image quality Tim, the action looks good and the images are exposed very well. I really like the last image, no action, but it tells a story regardless.

    Tim Lucky you
    1 and 3 are the best of this lot
    I hate when the action is not facing me #2 is good timing, just not a winner without faces

    I like #1 and #3, but also the last one...it tells a story.
    Day games...
    I'm jealous. :smile:
     
  9. Nice shots Tim, You keep calling Mike the best, but these are pretty spectacular themselves.

    As a DLS alum, I was thrilled to get the outcome (DLS 9-Rice 7). I did not make the game, I was refereeing some lacrosse, I wanted to see you work and where you stand, what your looking for, camera settings, etc....
    Any advice on where I should stand, I usually get 20-50 yards in front or behind play and I only have a 80-200 f2.8 or 200-400 f5.6, should I get in the endzone?

    yeah, ya got us this year!

    I normally try to be just behind the line of scrimmage to get defensive players and about 15-20 yds downfield to get offensive players. when they get to the 30 or so I move to the end zone. I would think with the 200-400 and daytime you could go about anywhere. I try and guess run/pass base on situation and pick someone to follow. If you are by yourself and try to capture ALL the action, you soon realize why Sports Illustrated sends an army to cover a game!

    I appreciate even being mentioned in the same sentence as Mike, and I try hard as always to come even close... (but let's be real here :biggrin:) 
     
  11. Thanks again for the info, I will keep trying and posting and asking for help!
