Good composition(s).

But, with the bright backlighting, maybe a little fill flash would have helped (especially the top pic). Not sure how far away you were from Santana in that second pic.... not to mention, it's probably not advised to strobe a pro athlete while they're playing/training.

Im not a pro or with credentails so i was up against the general population fence shooting with a 28-135 the picture was cropped down alot. He was close to 30 yards away atleast..


Thanks all for the complements and im not a mets fan:cool:
