again awesome work!! i really like your shots, i didn't go through all 119 shots. but really :cool:. what amazes me is all the subjects faces are in focus and you have motion blurr. now i have to ask, i see you are shooting in landscape mode, but what area of focus are you using? i usually use center, but i would have alot of room on top of the subject if i focused on their face, are you cropping any? if not how do you focus on thier face. look at your photo 30 for example.

This batch of foto was all done by D300 and AFS300 f4 lens

I use s mode and set the shutter around 1/125 bcos of the player run quite fast and i can already see the motion blur.

For me, a monopod helps a lot for the pan shot and my friend told me that to focus on only one player and that can help to keep the rate for success (infocus).

Also d300 got a 51 focus point and i will set it to focus on the player face(but i did say even 9 point can do it well)

Another hits is retouch your work. I am using Nikon capture NX software

sharpness is my favor(average + 10, Cmos got not much sharpness...).
