    Rented a Nikon 70-200 VR for my trip to Palm Springs last week...first day shooting with the lens (hand held) and first time shooting tennis with such a big lens. Action looks lok..could be a bit sharper...the shadows were fighting me. Not bad?

    ^^^ :lol: Lovely.

    I'm not much of a sports shooter, myself, but I liked the shot. I wondered if maybe the crop should have been a bit less aggressive, but I love the expression and look of real focus on her face... the action is great, the distortion/blur of the ball... the ripple of her clothing from the movement, the taughtness of her muscles. Really a lot of very neat things going on in the shot if you ask me. I only wish her eyes were on the ball or it was a shot taken at exact time of impact, but still... very neat IMO.

    Great telephoto. It looks like you were right on court.

    About how far away were you? Courtside?
