    Well I shot my first football game this weekend. I would have preferred a day game. Being a night game made it that much harder. My hat's off to you guys that do this. It always seems that a line judge or someone steps in front of you a just the wrong time.

    nice pics, certainly got an eye, 1st one would be better in focus, and i think 2nd one is still not in focus 100% and would maybe look better with a bit more action in also try and straighten the images!

    other than that well done!

    I'm trying to figure this one out. The motion blur looks like the ball is moving away from the receiver. Any Ideas what happened here?

    No flash and it was way early pre game so no flashes fired around me either.

    I was able to get a press pass...

    What's a Sooner doing all the way up in Spokane? I went to OU from 92-97. The dark years of John Blake.

    Great to see there are other SOONERS on here. I live in the great state of Oklahoma and LOVE the Sooners. Especially Sooner Football. I try to go to as many games as possible every year and will be attending law school there soon hopefully.

    BTW on the pics, what lens were you using, and did you have a press pass?
