Great job, fun story behind it as well. like the composition gives him plenty of room to work. muted background really makes him pop out. (does his jersey have a blue tint now? or is it my eyes playing tricks on me?) kudos cg

Perfect !!! 7/7 :0) :0) Wilson, love the composition & nice tones, great use of DOF too, very well done!!! Best regards.

This one is just great Wilson it has all the elements in very good balance.

Hand-Held?! Wilson, I can't believe it's hand-held and they let you bring this monster into the ball park? Do you have a journalist pass or what? Anyway, great color conversion on the bkg. I wish you could brighten up the shadow under the cap just a little bit.

Well I would not class the 70-200/2.8 as small either. This has worked out really well and I like your treatment iof it. How do you find the 2x TC affects the image?

Yes-sir-ee, had to hand hold . . . RICHARD: Thanks for your enthusiastic feedback! PETER: Thanks. I got lucky and scored a, "charter seat," (thanks to our neighbor,) first row, 3rd base side, visitors' dugout was our cup holders/storage shelves. They don't let us use any camera support, so good thing I can put my feet up on the dug out and form a human-tripod (seated, legs up, resting my arms on them.) BRAD: Thank you, sir! PNINA: Glad you like them. Dark blue was treated as separate layer (via desaturation and color balance,) and merge back with a sepia layer. KEN: Thanks. Very glad you approve. ^_^ HOWARD: Appreciate the comment. JERRY: Yes, it was BARELY hand-holdable at 1/500. Had he been in motion, I would've only gotten a blurry image. No press pass, (see seating above,) but the official photogs were only 10 feet to our left (300 2.8, 400 2.8 that I could tell.) By 6th inning, the security guy came over and told me, "No big lens allowed." So I had to switch over to 80-200 2.8. Same policy in your area too, Jerry? Wilson ^_^

"Classic" composition with the rule of 1/3.very good texture of background,and special dark blue( I wonder how you get that color)....I like that series as well. Pnina

Brad Kim
Amazing capture, Wilson... I love it very much!

Wilson Tsoi
Colin, Tony, Thank you both for your kind feedback. Always appreciate your visits. I don't find that the 2X TC deteriorate the image quality too badly if one were to start off by using highest possible quality optics. I would still keep it as a last option in getting the reach, but wouldn't hestitate to put it in action once needed.

Great baseball pic.

Ken Beilman
