these are from today, i did post 2 of these in the oly dslr section.

my goal was to get as many shots with the ball obending the raquet strings. these are from my E1, i tried shutter mode so i would keep a fast shutter, unfortunenately i didn't set to higest jpg setting. so some are kinda small with the crop. and yes johng i have been working on a close crop from the camera but it is extremely hard!! hahahahahahahahahahahahaha but i am trying! i will post some from e500 after.

and again thank you everyone for all your help!!!

Dude, these are top notch, tennis has to be by far your best sport currently and timing is great. If I ever get a chance to shoot tennis I would bemore than happy to be getting this quality as they are very saleable to the players.

The last 4 are the real ones for me.

I'm sure you are very pleased!!!

John, I like the first shot of the series with the E500 but not sure why you used noise ninja as it was only ISO 400, however the sharpening has helped.

You forgot to answer my question on the last tennis thread you made :blah:, where do you position yourselffor shots you are getting?

hi mark,

sorry mainly right by the side of the court, not quite in the middle because the the head official has their chair in the way. and on the main court i try a few from the ends. and again thanks for the encouragement!!!
