    Here are a few shots from the second game of the Suns - Spurs series.. Its been in the news quite a bit because the Suns decided to wear thier "Los Suns" jersey in partial protest to the new immigration law that was just passed in Arizona... Ive been a huge Suns fan for about 4 years now and I finally got to fly down and see them play - in a playoff game as big as this vs their biggest rivals, no less :mrgreen:. I got second row center court tickets, and I managed to get my camera in after a little hassle. ( I put my kit lens on the body before the game and hid my larger lens in the bottom of my camera bag until I got in.. Im not so sure they wouldve let me in with the 100mm, especially with seeing the hood. ) These are all with the new 100mm Macro 2.8 IS L.

    The composition is sorta lacking on most of them, but I didnt really give too much thought to it - my main concern was to watch the game... They fel behind early but managed to pull off a win. Go Suns!

    I believe all were taken at 2.8 at 800 ISO, maybe a couple at 400 with some NR and some sharpening.

    So cool man, Im also a pretty big suns fan so Im jealous you had such great seats at such an great game! How did you get your camera in? Shots are all awesome, #2 of Amar'e is definitely my favorite - great shot IMO. How are you liking the 100mm macro? Ive got a t1i now with the kit lens and the 55-250 and Im looking to get another lens, that macro lens is near the top of the list.. Also thinking about the 50mm 1.4 usm. Sorry to hijack - again great shots!

    Very nice, I really like the color in all of these but that last one, the only thing I would do is crop the head out of the first one in the bottom right hand corner. Great Job!!
