These were on 5D with 300 f2.8 and 1.4X tele. One or 2 were a little soft but sharpened ok for web and matchday programme use.

Super shots Mark - the late afternoon sun adds a wonderful glow to some of the pics. They are pretty impressive considering you were using a 1.4x on your lens!

Thanks, I have no problems with using the 1.4X tele converter on the 300 f2.8.

The low late afternoon sun, combined with tall trees around the ground, was a real pain!

If you look at pic 2 you can see long shadows cast across the pitch meaning that players were in and out of shadow all the time when attacking the end I was shooting.

A couple more from the same game with same combo

Michael Kightly slots home the first goal

Aaron Mclean rises to head home the 3rd, sadly the timing of the shot was a little early and before he's headed it. 3fps of the 5d sadly isn't quick enough to just hold the shutter down to machine gun in my experience.

the 'thwunkage' shot is by far the best shot. excellent series - always nice to shoot sports in late afternoon sunlight.

Thanks for comments.

I think there is a difference between a technically pleasing shot and a 'newsy' shot, for my money the 'thwunkage' shot falls into the former category and doesn't really tell anything about the game and the result.

Cheers

Mark

i suppose that's true. i just love the light hitting the bits of grass and dirt flying up in the air...just a great shot.

Yep, understand where you are coming from, all elements that add a bit of action to a still shot, accentuated by the back lighting.

Again, thanks for comments.

Mark

holy mother ... that lens is amazing. It makes the photos POP right off the screen.

Good shooting, you are a talented photographer.

Many thanks for kind comments.

I think the lens is a factor in the 'pop', the fact in most shots the background was in shadow also add to the 'pop'. along with the side/back lighting adding 'dimension' to the pics.

Cheers

Mark

Nice, I hear Bristol Rovers are looking at your frontman. The black guy whose names escapes me.
