    I was pretty impressed with the way these turned out. I don't know what baseball moms like, so please give me some helpful compliments and helpful advice.

    Great shots. The only crit I can give is that #3 looks a bit washed out.

    I bet the baseball moms will be all over these.

    :) I was waiting for somebody to point that out. It's a little soft around his face.

    90% of my shots were taken through the fence. The 2.8 just blurs it out real well. In #3, that washed out part is a fence wire. You can sort of see it starting at the top-middle, and going down towards the bottom-right. It's a real thick grayish light blur.

    #4 looks like it should have some type of logo or something. It could be a cool Ad poster. You should get a release from the parents and sell that shot.

    Nice pics.

    I would like to see the enitre bat in #3 and maybe punch up the colours a bit on it as well.

    Thanks for the advice, Gimp!

    Today I'm getting in my Canon 2x mkII Teleconverter for my 70-200 2.8L IS. Once I do that, I'll go shoot another game and will post those pictures.
