Default Lacrosse

I've been one of the missing around here as well it seems. Kinda lost some interest in photography but I'll be trying to get it back. In the meantime, took some photos of the son playing lacrosse this summer.

Cool! You did a good job of dealing with lousy lighting conditions.

Looks like the images are backlit. Nice if you could have been on the opposite side of the field.

Yeah, couldn't do much about which side of the field I was one unfortunately.

Kids and sports what could be better, nice job. When shooting the grand kids sports I often get on the opponents side just because of the lighting.

Look good to me. I have noticed that most of my lenses are decent regarding that veiling flare that lowers the contrast but my 18-55mm WR is awful. I have to be sure the sun is not hitting the front element or the image falls flat. The 16-45mm f4 is far better. What lens were you using here, it seems to handle the backlight reasonably well. Too bad so many events take place in difficult light.

I don't have a 55-300mm but I can see that the DA lens is quite good.

I've always been very happy with the performance. For the price I can't complain at all.
