Go to a White Sox game instead. :lol:


Sorry, I couldn't resist that one.

Actually, your best bet is to check the exposure in the field... learn to read the histogram and if your camera has it, the 'blinkies'. That will flash on the camera monitor if you've got blown-out highlights. Don't wait until a pitch to take a shot to check the histo.... fire one off well before the pitch and check it. Make the correction, and then you'll be ready for the fastball.

This is fixable by bringing down your highlights some. I would have spot metered, and had a pretty close exposure before the action started. It is not too bad of a shot minus the blown areas and motion blur.

I guess I should clarify what I was asking was help on the edit of the photo but I do understand I should have taken my time a bit more but I will work on it somemore with the highlights and shadows in lightroom
