    Here are a couple of photos from my son's first ball game. It was difficult to get anything at 7pm, because not only would they not let me use a flash, but I was not aloud to even just step at the open gate of the dugout to get some photos, so I had to take all of these through one of the holes in the chain link fencing. BLAH!

    I think you did VERY well, considering those lighting challenges. I like them all!

    I well remember those nights at the ball park. :) And the joys of manning the concession stand, too! :lol:

    No doubt: you did GREAT for the circumstances you found yourself in.
    And I am with Corry abd Chiller: that first one is exceptionally good! I love that one best of all, too!

    I'm with Corinna, Corry, and Chiller. (Corry, Corinna, Chiller, Clarinet...there should be some sort of law banning that many c's)

    The first is great, and I really love the tones in the second one. How did you convert it?

    Don't laugh at the simplicity at how I converted these, but I actually just did a b/w gradient with a small contrast boost.
