I shot this one of my son reaching for an over-thrown pass this afternoon. I gave him an "A" for effort.

Very nice shot. If I tried to lay out that much to makea catch I would not be able to walk the next day. Looking at the background it looks like you were panning as you made this shot?

LOL...I know what you mean! Just throwing the ball for an hour is enough to give me a sore shoulder the next day. Yes, I was panning to follow him as I took it. He's harder to track than he used to be. He's gotten fast!

Thanks for the comments guys. Thattype of goofing around with the camerais what I enjoy the most.

If there is a monthly challenge thing for sport shots, you would have made it.
I am more interested in how you could make that.
Most difficult part is the manual prefocus.
You would need to focus as the fast action shot does not allow too much DofF which means that it is between 4 - 7 tops.
Then you pan and follow him (subject).
Am I correct?
Is it impossible to do a shoot like that in AF?

It is a great shot - the intensity of concentrationon his face is something else.

Thanks! I would love to say that I meticulously calculated all the correct settings, but I would be lying. I set the camera to "Sports Mode" and panned...that's it. I love my K100D! :lol:
