I shot a game this afternoon in harsh sunlight, but had a decent day. Thought I'd share a few. C&C welcome and appreciated.

Thanks Tim,

I couldn't decide between 4 and the next frame in the sequence. But I think I chose the right one. Here is the next frame.

I think you made the right choice too. I like the ball closer to the hand.

Hey Matt,

Great job dealing with nasty harsh light. Love the way you pulled me right in from the first shot by shooting TIGHT. Really #13 because so rarely do you get a good look at the face of the runner and the catcher in the same frame. Nailed it.

Really nice series. Yes, #4, #8, #13 for me. You made a good choice on #4. The next frame needs the ground as a reference.

Good shots Matt. I consider baseball the most difficult sport for catching the action but you made it look easy.

Thanks Rick, Paul, and Marty.

Paul the next frame does have the ground in the original, but without going a bit square to loose the player who came in on the right I lost the ground.

Very nice, yup I like your choice for #4 too, and also like #8 & #13.

Some of the verticals look off a bit, like in #9 & #10...

Sweet looking shots, Matt. Definitely a good day at the ball park for you.

Question- what special tips can you offer in regards to convincing the catcher, runner, and ump to all face you in a play at the plate, like in #13? Damn, these guys just laugh at me when I suggest it.

Very nice shots. Hard to pick a favorite, but I'll go with #4 and #13.

Nice shots, what lens are you using and where were you standing to get the shots?

Thanks,

Matt,
So glad I popped in here and checked out this gallery even though I had already seen it on facebook. Once again nice work, my friend! These look 10x better than on fb. I hate the way they compress their photos during upload.

Thanks guys, yeah Billy Facebook really kills a good image. Not much you can do though I don't think.

Tom, I assure you this is 1 in a 100,000 for getting all of them for me. I have two other plays at the plate from this day, and guess what either one or no faces in any of them!

All were taken with a D3s 400MM F2.8 with a 1.4 TC on. I was by the fence on the right field side sitting on the ground. This is the largest foul territory area of a HS field I have shot at. Huge foul ball area. That is why I shoot with the 1.4 on it all the time.


Paul I'm attaching the original and I may have mispoke I thought I cropped the edge of the ground but I may not have. This is just resized.
