Ray, Will Meyers Gets a Hit
July 2014

Image taken hand held from about 150 feet from my seat at indoor Tropicana Field Baseball Stadium in St. Petersburg, FL;  taken with my new Lumix camera which has a zoom lens of 25-600mm at f2.8 !!!  lens zoom was set to approximately 500mm at ISO 400, 1/250 sec. at f2.8. The only thing done to the image was crop, sharpen, and add a border; The lighting in Tropicana Field is about 5 stops below sunny sixteen. !!

    Hand held! Good job! Knowing your predilection for adding in an item I am surprised you didn’t put a ball in front of the bat. I wonder if the colours could have been a little brighter?

    Nice action shot Nick. The only thing would be nice to see the ball coming off the bat, but in reality it’s already in the outfield. Shooting baseball is difficult so you have captured a nice shot.

    Good action shot. I’m also surprised you didn’t choose a shot where you could add the ball.

    Great action photo and all elements are in the correct place for the composition. Your lighting for the photo is good for the situation you were in. Nice and sharp.

    I can’t add anything that has not already been said. Good shooting Nick!

    I’m not at all sure about the composition of this, Nick. The main figure is in the centre of the image and I feel he should be far more towards the bottom left hand corner. So, if it were mine, I’d crop it like that. I also think that the lighting is a bit flat and Play with that too (Viveza or Darken / Lighten Centre) so that it has more depth to it.
