Of the 8 posted here, all but the surfing shot were with 1D Mk IV and the EF 300 f2.8L. for surf shot, I had same body but EF70-200 f2.8L with a 1.4 converter attached. Other images in the full gallery (esp most hockey) were also with 70-200 f2.8L only.

#1 and #8 were my "first impression standouts." Love baseball! Love the "lack-of-'sanis'-had-to-use-the-ribbed-socks" look! Old bag. Keep on shooting! :)

I'll add #3 to your list and those were the one's that got me excited (photographically speaking of course). Nice job Christian and I'll also commend you on going through this exercise. I think its something every shooter should do as I think you learn a lot about your work as a result.

For sure! Last year I had trouble picking ONLY 25. This year I had trouble finding the last few to add to the collection. Not sure if I did not shoot as well this year, or if my "standards" for images to make the cut simply became higher!

I recall a center fielder diving for a catch - you posted the original and crop. Great shot for the amount of detail and sharpness preserved on an extensive crop.

cheers!
