This was taken with a 20D with a Sigma 70-300 APO Super II Macro lens at a Yankee game in the Bronx NY.1/1250,F5,ISO200,AT 133MM.I sharpened a bit and bumped up the contrast a bit.LMK what you think.This is also my 1st attempts at action shots.



Thanks

Charlie

I think the contrast may be a tad bit too high... and the shadow on his face is a bit distracting... but short of those minor quibbles... GREAT picture!

I've been meaning to go take some sports shots for the longest time, but haven't had a chance.

Technique is good, nice job freezing the action. I think the colors are a little oversaturated, but that is a matter of preference. My only real pick is not having the ball in the frame.

Nice capture!

The original is much better in terms of color. I always shoot in burst mode to ensure I get a pic with the ball in the frame. The key to sports photography is to shoot lots of frames to insure you get a few keepers.

I am still getting use to this camera and didnt have the ISO high enough to stop the action od the ball but it is in here.This is a homerun by Gary Sheffield.
