    Set 2

    This is the second set taken on Monday, Labor Day, a holiday in the USA. Traditionally, the start of the school year here, with this holiday the last of the Summer. Three of the pics show the amazing providence I had in getting shots of the ball just leaving the pitcher's fingers. Hope this isn't to much at once for all to digest. But after looking at the excellent shots from the soccer games I had to give American baseball a fair shot or two.

    If you mean the night shots I agree. Those were pushed very hard ISO wise. The shot of the play at the plate does look a bit overexposed. My bad, I could have fixed it had I payed attention to the exposure.

    That last pitcher shot confuses me.
    f8 1/3200 shutter speed.
    The ball is sharp the face is sharp but the hand is not. In terms of distance I assume that the hand is between the ball and the face and in terms of speed I assume that the hand would be travelling slower than the ball.
    So I'm confused.

    Perhaps the ball is traveling towards the camera and the hand down or back towards the pitcher.

    My take on that scene is: The ball is traveling toward the camera (so no motion blur), and appears to be a "knuckle ball" which rotates very little. The arm is traveling downward and the face is relatively still in comparison. Had the shot been taken from the side the ball and hand would both show a bit more blur.

    Let me post a 'selfie'.
    That's me. I was about to go spitting on whatever the remains of one of the world's worst mass murderers.
    Once, the most powerful man in the country. But he died and cremeted (sic) (burned is a more suitable word) with old car tyres like a discarded rat. That was a waste of tyres, IMO, they could be left to make some VC style sandals.

    I was going to say: Probably can't show the photo of folks pissing on the grave...

    ... but I won't.

    Great news. I replaced the PC board on a 1.5GB drive that had all of my archive photos, and recovered same. The problem occurred when I used a defective power connector and let the blue smoke out. I was thinking that I would have to fork out several hundred $ for data recovery. Long story short, a company in BC (Canada) provided a new board and transfer the ROM contents from my old drive PC board... and voila! Reassembled the board and she's a workin' again. $49.95, such a deal.

    So now after a 2 year break I can restart the massive editing process using modern software. Fun, fun, fun....
