hey everyone... shot tennis for the first time today.. not easy and didnt really have anyone to guide me.. so i went with the general rule of thumb with tight cropping with the ball in the shot...

shot with sigma 120-300 f2.8 and 85mm 1.8, i just got my 20D but now i want a 1D mk2 :bsmilie:

get closer shots of tennis if you can. your basketball shots feel odd; they seem to have a consistent lot of empty space.

hi do u use AF or manual focus when you took the pictures? from the pics it seems that the players are moving very very fast... will the camera be able to focus in time? or was the focus done manually? thanks for sharing :)

I think for the 2nd last picture, if you had left out the rim and backboard and filled the frame with the basketballer, it would have been excellent.

I especially like the 1st picture. Thanks for sharing.

tennis shots were taken at 1/2000 @2.8 iso 400 i think

basketball shots were at 1/500 @2.8 iso 800

yeah, i was going to comment on the severe purple fringing in the tennis shots. Also, try and go closer. Too much space. Do a search on wimbledon (same forum category) and check out jed's shots from last year's game at sw19. I think its fair to say he is the pro around here.
