Not a very good night for results - my timing just stunk :sad: But I thought I'd share a couple that turned out OK...

Editorial note on this one: I intentionally cropped this tight - just didn't feel comfortable with how the original photo featured her back end. Not sure why they wear these shorts but I don't feel comfortable with any shot that accentuates that on a teenage girl.

That's very decent of you John!!! If you manage to shoot some adult ladies though, don't feel you have to make the same call :lol::G. Oh and if you think those are short, one of the girls on our team (OK the woman's team for the same club as I play for - just to clarify I don't play on a woman's team!!), who is currently playing at international University standard has shorts that are even shorter. It seems to be a goal for a lot of them to get the shortest ones they can possibly find.

I take it that you were using the 85mm 1.8. What settings were you using with this (ISO, Shutter, Aperture)? Also are you using AI Servo on centre point?

Out of this series my personal fave is number 2, just a shame that it was not landscape to have had the opposing player going for the block.
