Impressive photos. Even moreso for your first time shooting baseball.

Keep'm coming....

Those uniforms are horrific though.

Honestly, I like the motion blur number 2. I think it shows the dynamics of the bat, especially with the ball and barrel slightly blurred and the end cap and hands with very little to no motion blur.

Bobbyz and Aressem I will have to disagree with you and agree with Matt. Give your cameras to your wife, kid, friend or any person with no knowledge of photography and see if there results are the same as yours. They won't be because you have studied your craft. Yes gear helps 100% but if you don't know where to look AND what to look for when shooting you might as well be holding a polaroid :-):-)

I hope you saw the smily at the end of my post. Catching baseball in mid air is hard even with 1dx. So it photographer, but I don't believe that is your first time shooting it though.

Thanks. Yeah I dig the colors but the pattern is rough. Lol

Appreciate the feed back. Though I really want to get the completely frozen bat on ball. Looks dope when you see the ball warping around the bat. One day maybe. :-)

I was thinking that they were being sarcastic, but sarcasm too often gets lost in the world of the internet. :-)

I sure did. That's why I said thank you. ;)
Even if you were joking, I still think you have a very valid point (which I agree with) about gear being the difference when it comes to certain fields of photography. Sports is one of them where you need great high ISO performance and fast glass for wicked fast shutter speeds.

Believe it or not, that was the first and only time I've been at a baseball field with a camera. I had way more misses then I did with ball in frame. I kept finding myself not anticipating well enough and caught the shot after the ball was already in the catchers mitt. Easy enough to adjust for if you know what you're doing wrong though. And even at that, I still missed tons of shots. :)

Dang BobbyZ I hate when I misinterpret a post on a forum! I guess I am just a little over sensitive because I get the " Dang those pictures are awesome! must be nice to have equipment like that" comment about 10 times a year :-D:-D
