    I want your camera! They look professional, to me. I feel if they were contrasted a bit more that it would add alot more life to them though, but who am I to say? Nice shots!

    Thanks for the compliment. I just have a Rebel XS, nothing fancy. these were taken with the kit lens. 18-55. you can see the rest of them here

    some of the later shots were taken with a 70-200 2.8L IS.

    nice shots. I think I would try opening up the aperture a little more to reduce the distraction of the background.

    Better then my Coolpix L20 D: From what I see there, you're better then most photographers with the XS though. Most are out of focus or really grainy and I don't see that in your work, so props for that.

    Would have loved to do that, but the kit lens opens to F5.6 at the range I was shooting. Im in the hunt now for a 24-70ish 2.8 lens

    I REally like #4; how you caught the bat, ball and everything in motion, good shot.

    In #2, is he fixing to hit the ball one handed?

    #2 is one of my favs. He is actually ducking the ball so he wont get hit. As you can see in the upper right corner the ball is way over his head. (he's a short fella) and he kinda looks like a chimp in that pose. =)

    #4 is my son batting. He is also the catcher. You can see those shots on the gallery site.

    maybe it's just me, but they all look slightly underexposed. I'd pump them up in photoshop if I were you.

    I love doing baseball shots! one of my best friends in high school played catcher, and while photographing him I managed to get a shot in where the ball was actually hitting the player in the head! (now there's a shot I'll never be able to reproduce in a million years.
    These are great. #s 3 and 4 are my faves... I would like to see #5 with a little more light and contrast.
