Hey Jobeye, good to see you back posting in the sports section!!

Looks like some great light for shooting in with those shutter speeds, nice. The first two seem out of focus or something, not quite sure. I would say the 2nd is possibly one you have cropped in on too much but can't fully tell the cause.

Anyway the last one is totally different, lovely and sharp with good timing to capture the ball in frame and concentration on the face of the player.

Hey, I'm jealous. 2-3 more weeks before I've got real baseball here.

Of all of them I like the first the best. Something different and interesting.

2 has nice action, but as Mark indicated, the focus is a bit off.

3 is just an uninteresting shot. No action, no emotion. Basically a person standing at the plate.

So I guess I'm of the reverse opinion from Mark :G- 3 is my least favorite because the subject is too boring. With a 300mm 2.8 and 30d a sharp photo of a player standing still should be a given. Now the question becomes - is it an interesting shot of a player standing still?

Or maybe it's just my jealosy eating away at me :blah:

Mark , make a deal, you fly me to England and take me to Soccer match and I will think about flying you to the states.

LOL, I will have to think about that.

I have just found out that our city does have a baseball team (there are not a lot of teams in the UK - and it certainly isn't big as there is no seating or anything), so after looking at their website which is not up to date, they have horrible photos so I will give it a bash when they have the first game next month. Can someone give me a diagram of what is where and where I should look at positioning myself? (Not meaning to steal the post).
