Thanks mate, appreciate the feedback, It was my first real attempt at making a logo, it's probably a bit big on these photos .
Got a big game coming up this weekend and a new lens so i'm quite excited!

First game with my new lens, after using a 70-200 for the past few years stepping up to a 300 prime is certainly a learning curve, I found myself standing about 5 meters behind the dead ball line just to get enough of the players in shot, the lighting is never that great at the ends of the field at Toll Stadium during night games so hopefully I'll get a daytime match in the future

I was using a 1.4x TC (ver I). I usually go 5.6 or 5 with that TC, but I had plenty of light so I stopped down a bit to buy back some IQ plus I wanted to see if there was a big difference in sharpness and/or DOF from what I usually shoot. Additionally, I like to shoot from the back of the try line when the play hits the 22, so the players are moving toward be a lot of the time. My thought was a wider DOF might keep them in focus better as they moved toward me.(and out of the focal plane). I didn't notice much increase in sharpness but the sharper background was noticeable, at least to me. I prefer a bit more subject isolation I think.

greats shots, I wonder if a little less sharpening might be better? sometimes when too much sharpening is applied at appears as noise in the less detailed parts of the images.

last night in trying conditions Northland B took on Manu Samoa A in a fairly onesided match with the visitors from the pacific being too big and powerful for our development squad, I'm not sure of the final score as the scoreboard mysteriously turned off . .

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing my Northland Taniwha playing the All Blacks last night in a pre season hit out, I don't recall the score and I don't think I'll go searching for it to be fair. . .

Nice! Do you have more? How did they play? Honestly, the only positions I have some concern is whether Cane or Savea will play at 7, and whether the 12-13 combo will click. Hard to replace Smith and Nonu, but hopefully Crotty and Fekitoa are up to the task. I hope Moala gets another crack - I thought he did well the last time out against Wales. By the way, is Mackenzie in the team? I like the little guy - he's going to be a good one pretty soon when he gets a chance.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
