I was at my daughter's softball game the other night, sitting along the 1st baseline behind the backstop. I had not intended on taking any shots through the mesh as I thought it would be too distracting. However, my camera was already on and a runner was trying to steal home so I grab this shot. It seems to work as a square on the mesh perfectly frames the runners face. Any thoughts on shooting through obstacles such as this?

It's tough to get a good shot through a fence. You could try to press the lens up against the fence opening. If you have a small digicam, often you will be able to fit the lens through the opening. I would crop this a little tighter to eliminate the ump (..not a flattering view of him:-).) and coaches and players in the background. For sports if you can shoot in shutter priority at the fastest speed possible to stop action..1/250 or better. Also try to get the ball and/or the base in the frame so the viewer can make his/her own out or safe call. Colors are a little washed out. Baseball games are great shooting opportunities so shoot as much as you can. Despite some shortcomings with the image, this pic will be a lot of fun to look back at and it documents fun times in your childs life!!!
