    I just got my camera and brought it to my friends highschool baseball game. 2 kids were throwing a ball around behind me and then droped their gloves and ball. I thought it look neat so I snaped this pic.

    It was on auto(f5.6 1/1250sec.) If there is anything else to put to help with C&C please ask. Thanks.

    First thing to do is to take it out of AUTO.

    Camera: Nikon D80
    Aperture: f/5.6
    Shutter Speed: 1/1250
    ISO: 500
    Focal Length: 200mm

    Because the camera decided to use ISO 500 your picture has some noise in it.

    The color saturation looks a little high.

    A little too much foreground which isn't very interesting and doesn't add much to the shot.

    This picture might have been a little more interesting if it had a person in it.

    Ya i like to try but i'm so afraid of getting my camera bonus balled by someone just wanting to shoot me if they get mad. But you definately have to get a fast shutter speed when taking those pictures because when you can freeze the ball(s) in mid air it's pretty sick!
