Much better John, I declined from posting the first time as there was something not right with them and glad you fixed the problem.

For me number 3 is the best shot of the series although the pitcher in number 1 is great as I love the expressions you capture.

I agree with Mark on #3....clearly my favorite. I also like the catcher in #2 and the double-play turn in #5

Very nice as always John. I'd have to say for me it's between #2(catcher with his eyes closed and the ball in the glove - how'd you get him to turn it at just the right angle?) and #5 (looks like the shortstop about to turn a double play and you are right down the first base line?)

Thanks everyone. Hoping to get out this evening and shoot another baseball game.

Oh - and for what it's worth - the portrait shot (#6) sold as 11x14 print. I've found, by and large those shots sell as larger prints better than the action does. Of course, those can be tougher to find - decent lighting, close enough to get tight framing so you have all pixels available for large print. Basically moms buy photos and they love to see their kids smiling. Which is, of course, why portrait photographers make more $$$ than print-sales sports photographers. Too bad I don't like portrait photography :angry:
