Today was the last softball game of the season. I hate to see it end because I'm finally getting close to some shots with which I'm pleased, although I've still got enough to learn.



I had to crop more than I'd like on this one, but I liked the timing





A couple from the last baseball game of the season Thursday





Home run swing

Paul - were these with the Phoenix? Or crops from your shorter lens?

John, all of these were taken with the Tamron 70-300. I was shooting from behind first base on the field of play, and the Phoenix proved hard to adjust fast enough for the shots where shorter focal length was required (first and second bases, hitting, sprint out of the box, etc.) On baseball, only the collision in left field represented any substantial cropping. The play at second and the home run swing were near full-frame shots.

On the softball shots, the slide at third was a fairly heavy crop because the play took me by surprise and I didn't get the lens extended. The other two were at 300mm. The Phoenix lens was simply too long for softball (again, shooting on the field behind first base)
