I think these are great...nice expressions on the faces and tricky exposures with all that white clothing!

#4 Did the 'keeper get one in the face guard or is he only anticipating it?

Thanks for the input guys & sorry for the delay in replying!. Kind regards Graham

Hi Jelpee, yes the exposure is a bloody pain given the whitwashed walls as well

Jeff, nope these aren't a far reprasentative of the noise of a D2h rather a fair representative of images published through Photobucket. I am suprised your keen eye hasn't spotted a cock up on my part?----- no? in #1 I removed some sensor marks(cameras need a service urgently but no time to send due to working every weekend), & inadvertantly removed a tiny bit of the ball . So here's the previous frame just to show it was a round ball

Hi ronin, thank you

Hello onlooker, nope the batsman was really no where near the "wicket keeper" in reality!, just a forshortaning of the distance with the lens combination

You seem to be located in an optimal spot to have taken these pictures...isn't this area of the pitch generally out-of-bounds to spectators since it may interfere with the sighting of the ball by the batsmen? I know a little bit about cricket to be dangerous.

No John yer spot on it can get very tedious . A version called 20/20 is a much better game as each team is limited to 20 overs (6x20 deliveries) which encourages a lot of batting for the bounderies (out of field) either by a rolling ball (4 runs) or straight out of the "ball park" which is 6 runs. + they have a a selection of colours for the team kit rather than the boring white!. If you get a chance check it out on the satalite channels (really big in India etc), I think you'll be suprised in a photographers sence as to the photo opps?, if you have a 600 f4 of course!! . Kind regards Graham.

Hi jelpee, your spot on about the position being dangerous (I was nearly hit 2 or 3 times )., I did however position myself just a few yards either way of the "line of sight". I did on 2 occasions have to move due to a Left hooker batsman but they are normaly very good about it due to the papers coverage of the game!. Kind regards Graham.
