    Here are a few more shots from my last pool tournament. I took some of the advice I received from my last post and switched lens so I could zoom in closer and get tighter shots of the players, eliminating more of the background. The pictures were a little darker, switching from my 50mm 1.8 to my 70-200mm 2.8, but I think I like the overall results better.

    I noticed they accidentally got watermarked again when I re-uploaded them, but didn't have to time to fix it!

    Thanks so much for all of the comments! #3 was also a special photo as it is a really good friend shooting the 8-ball to win the Open AA State Championship, so I was happy that it turned out!
