Default Some football (soccer) action.

I was shooting an inter church competition that my church were playing in.

All using the 1DmkIII and 120-300mm f2.8 with 1.4x TC.

I'm pretty happy with the results considering I'm so out of practise with shooting football, I think it's probably 2 years or more since I've done it. My timing was out so didn't get the best of the action but hopefully next time out I will do better.

Thanks Dustin, I admit to stopping down to f4.5 for a little extra sharpness when using the teleconverter.

Thanks Daniel, just don't forget that these are the better quality shots, I have so many where I missed the action, didn't frame well etc.
