|This was a 7 o'clock game, it hit 90 degrees today, I was suppose to work 10am to 7pm but the computers went down, so instead of going home my son and I went to a Portland Beavers game. Itís just single A ball, but it was funÖ
I was about 300 feet away using the sigma 200mm zoom hand held. This lens works well; I was surprised how well I could keep the shutter speed up., shot at 400iso, kept me in the 400 to 500 range. Later when it got darker, I only had to bump it to 800 iso. Started at f4, as it got dark went to f3.2.
Processing: played a little with levels, slight curves, color balance slight geen & red, usm 77/2.7/0, resized, saved as web.
Not sure how it's going to score? I fill it meets the spirit of the challenge well, if anybody has umpired before you know most every decision is criticized, as for the lens and the crop its pretty sharp, good colors, composition is good. I don't like the dirt around the turf at the base but over all itís a good sports shot, if I was to vote prob. a 7.
I enjoy shooting sports/action shots. This one is for me, so I guess we'll see........ace
