Another cloudy, winter day in Alabama. I got a sigma 120-300 that I wanted to try out, so I didn't wait until it was sunny. I'd love any advice on improving these. Thanks.

Looks like you're off to a good start with a nice new lens. The first two shots are my favorites. I'd like to see the ball in the frame for #s 6 and 8.

They look a tad underexposed to me. Try bumping them up a little bit

#3 is the winner for me in this series. Love the way you framed it and the intensity in the pitcher's face and jaw line. You can tell he is putting his all into that one pitch. Are you satisified with the lens after one outing?

Thank you for the comments. MrWilt, I thought the auto focus was a little slow compared to my Canon 70-200. But I guess that's to be expected. I still don't know if the autofocus depends on your lens or your camera? Also the sun never came out yesterday and the team was wearing grey jerseys. That may have been a factor also. I think I'm going to like it though. I guess I better happy with it because I'm stuck with it now!

Also, #6 is with a 1.4x sigma teleconverter.
