I don't even know where to begin...learned a lot this weekend at the tournament. I have found that I get very nauseous trying to track the ball while looking through the view finder. Didn't quite expect that one. I think the first day I got more pictures of grass and sky than I did the actual players. I would just push that button, and with all that clicking going on, I guess I got a little excited :lol:. Timing was also difficult. I didn't really anticipate that. I have been playing soccer for 22 years now so I figured knowing whena playwas building would just come naturally to me and I would just click away...yeah, that was another thing that wasn't quite what I had expected. All in all it was really a lot of fun and got a great laugh out of myself. So, other than working on my timing and the nauseous thing, what are my next steps...

I would like to get out of the action mode, but not really sure where to go. 'P' mode?

Any comments on the photo's is greatly appreciated.

...I'm trying to download my pictures, but all of the files are too big. How do I make them smaller??? Do I have to crop each one?

Sorry for the hassle!

I love your post.:G I suggest, though, that you ask your question in one of the other, (more technical), forums.

Try posting in one of the "Software" forums.

I'm sorry, I thought since I was trying to accomplish "sports photography" that I was in the right forum...where should I go?

Thanks Shutter Bug. I'm going to have to check that out. I'm very confused on why the first picture went, but not the others.:?...always something to learn!
