I thought this pic turned out pretty well. Its a kit lens. 55-200 4.5-5.6. Let me know what you think. Please feel free to criticize all you want.

Thanks

Good DOF. Did you intend to have the motion blur? If you did, then great!

Thanks for the comment. I was really just trying to capture the action while still being able to keep his face in focus. Is the motion blur due to not fast enough shutter speed?

Thanks,

Wolves

yes. The wrist motion of a pitcher is quite fast. Usually requires somewhere in the 1/2000-1/4000 range to freeze. But, it's usually not necessary to freeze that part of the motion. In fact, that bit of blur can be desirable - you want the pitcher's face and trunk to be frozen - hand movement often is a positive thing.
