Poor lighting conditions, but this is stillmy best cricketshot so far :-)

Thoughts/critiques etc welcome (+ also suggestions on how people might edit it particularly welcome)

(Nikon D70, Nikon 70-300mm G 4.5/5.6, ISO 400, Shutter priority, 1/500th second, F13, @ 300mm)

Very nice catch, :-). Being new to photography, I wont comment on the light, focus etc...but I will say it is harder than it looks to get a shot like that.

Tried my 10yo nephews soccer this summer. Looks like a slow game to watch, ha, try to take pictures of it!

IMO, well done.

Jimbo, that's really excellent! Tell the guy to turn his face towards the camera next time. :lol:

looks pretty good to me. We are a cricket mad nation and cricket is played in just about all country towns as well as the city's and in many backyards. I think I will have to go and check out our local players this summer and hopefully try to get as good a shot as this one.:-)

Haha... my brother was playing again this Sunday, and I got a diving catch again, with face pointing at me but unfortunately focus locked onto background not the player

Have posted this in 'photo editors' forum too for advice on how to get the best from a basically flawed image. Any suggestions here would be greatly appreciated too. :-)

Good shot jimbojetset, although I'm not a cricket fan.

For the out of focus one. The only way I know of getting around that sort of problem - with auto-focus - is to point the camera at the spot on the ground you think the player will be over when you take your picture and keep the shutter button depressed half-way until you take the shot. Of course, you're going to have to guess where he will be a lot of the time.
