This is my first baseball game of the year. Very harsh light and low in the sky. I was shooting some of these almost directly into the sun with a 1DMk2N and 400 f/2.8 II.

Awesome shots Mike, especially for shooting into the light :thumb

I'd love to get out and shoot some spring sports action... If anyone knows of any games coming up, let me know!

I didn't even notice all the facial expressions... amazing what you don't pay attention to. Being that most of my action shooting is youth sports, I do concentrate on exposing the face correctly... because that is what the parents want to see. But, I don't always look at the expressions.

That coache's huddle with the pitcher is kind of interesting. The pitcher is the guy facing me in the middle. They were up by 3, and this huddle occurred when he just walked a guy to load the bases! After this huddle, he struck out two, and then the last out was caught by the guy in the next to last picture to end the game. My camera flipped over 9999, so that last picture was actually one of the first ones I took in the game.
