Well... here's my first entry to the Weekly Photo Challenge. It was shot with a Pentax *ist DS with Sigma 70-200 f2.8.

Nicely done. A great action shot as well as a "threes" shot. A faster shutter speed would have made it sharper but it is still a good shot as is.

Nice shot. Sports photos are hard to do well. Keep 'em coming.

I've learned that taking actions shots in artificial light is not for wimps. This is really one of the few times that a dSLR clearly shows its advantage over point and shoots and prosumer digitals.

Their ability to use interchangeable telephoto lens, high ISO without significant amount of noise, and very short lag between the click and the shot are some of the advantages.

Given the fact that you have less than a second to make a judgement call on a shot, well done. Aloha and very nice job.
