I shot a t-ball game yesterday. I was reminded that for little kids, there may not be stellar action, but those facial expressions can be priceless. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did...

Great shots. John. I think my favorite is the one with the ball AND the grass being thrown in.

I agree they're ALL great and would find it difficultto choose BUT, 3 and 4 tell something about the difficulty for these youngsters.

Well done

Great shots. I like #3 & #4 the best but all are good. I still feel thatkids thatageare the most fun to shoot in sports. They try so hard and laugh about it when they make a mistake and are just having a good time.

Thanks folks. I guess each sport and age group has a specific charm to it. Although, I must admit I prefer the extremes - either the really young like this where they're just having fun or the really experienced where you can get some great action. The middle ground can tend to be very long and tedious if you don't have a personal attachment (i.e. son or daughter involved).

Nice pics John! What kind of camera did you use? And, do you recall what settings you had? (e.g. aperture, shutter speed...etc.).

Camera was Canon 20D. Lens = Sigma 120-300 2.8

Aperture priority, set at 2.8, ISO 400 and +1/3 EC

Shutter speeds were between 1/800 and 1/3400 depending on lighting

This is so wrong!!!

In pics 3 & 4 - the base should be in the dirt, not burried in the grass!!!



Great set of pics! Nothing is better than seeing little ones having fun...
