Haven't posted for awhile so thought I would show some stuff from the start of spring sports in Indiana. I have been working on my tight shooting and these are some of my favorites.

All really nice shots. 300mm f/2.8L? Looks like it!

Central Indiana? Where's all the RAIN?!!!! Our kids have had more games canceled due to weather than they've played. It's just been a brutal spring in NE Ohio!

Thanks everyone.

These were all shot with 400 f/2.8

Wish I also had a 300 but I do a lot of wishing.

Dave - We have had an endless supply of rain as well that has made a mess of the spring season. The few days with no rain have been cold. Not a good spring so far.

Dave, other than one HS tourney in Lodi (that rained the entire time), we have yet to play a match this season due to cancellations. Kev, I think you are lying and just keeping all the nice weather just west of us for yourself! :lol:

Just mash down that shutter and hope. 297,475 frames for 8 keepers. Isn't that how the pros do it? :-)

Nice job. Be aware of the verticals in the backgrounds though. They can be distracting even if they are blown out. #2 really has this problem.

Thanks for the feedback but I'm not sure how much more vertical I can get this shot.

I wish that were true. I am afraid it is going to go straight from cold and rainy to 100 and humid.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. Your verticals are fine. What I mean is that the actual presence of the vertical lines are distracting. Vertical lines catch the eye and draw the eye away from the subject.

What I'm trying to say is be aware of your background and try to eliminate lines that don't belong. Either move left, right, up, down, etc. I hope that helps.

Yes, that does help. Sorry I misunderstood what you meant but totally agree with what you are saying. Once you got me looking at #2 again, all I kept seeing was the non parallel horizontal bars and it started driving me crazy.

Thanks again for the input and for taking the time to clarify. Much appreciated.
