    Some basketball shots

    Tried to stay close to the 200mm end of the Tamron 70-200, also tried the old saying of zoom in, then get closer. Also flipped back and forth between spot AF area and wide to see how things worked so I know. All and all a rather physical game, our girls held on and won. Even more great snapshots / bad photographs at my flickr page LOL!

    I take that young lady on the deck, in the last image, was a victim of "recoil", eh?

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Nice shots. The refs are practicing the no calls in case they get a shot at the NBA.

    LOL it was a interesting night, I think the refs started out 'letting them play" because they didn't want tempers to wind up in the stands or on the court from stopping and starting all the time. Emotions are high as the loser goes home till next fall. The down side is that action started getting to physical. the young lady from the recoil was in the cornerand went up for a jumpshot and got run into as she released. We did get a T foul and she shot 3 for us.
