Here are some shots (in two postings) from recent local minor league baseball games. The first set is from 8/30 and was taken at night. pushing the camera to near its limits in standard High ISO. They were taken with -.67 EXP comp. as well as speeds from 2500 to 4000. Full size images show the results of pushing to so high an ISO, but smaller images look surprising acceptable.

Falconest174
09-05-2013, 02:44 PM
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. :p

09-05-2013, 05:23 PM
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.

K1W1
09-05-2013, 10:35 PM
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.

kgosden
09-06-2013, 12:09 AM
Perhaps the ball is traveling towards the camera and the hand down or back towards the pitcher.

D70FAN
09-06-2013, 12:14 AM
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.

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.

Well... my cousin did just that. Unfortunately, I didn't get a shot so I can't show you.
However, the Cambodians are superstituous folks and nowadays, vile as that animal was, some of the locals who were the last bastians of the Khmer Rouge ended up treating him as some sort of deity of the land. They pray to him for health, wealth; etc. He banned all such beliefs when he was alive; so how stupid does that sound? I think I posted an image of his cremation ground earlier... if not I will post another to show how the locals still respect to him.

I'm not big in B&W. It just doesn't make sense that after million$$$ and many years research in R&D to develop colour photograph, some people end up head over heels over B&W!
I admit though, sometimes B&W bring out more details than colour image can ever do.

Hey K1W1.... that's one stunning shot (in colour). Or is that sepia? :)

I know, some of the most impacting images I have seen have been in B&W. Just speculating. I have used sepia tone on some of my shots and liked the results. I think news photos benefit from the monochrome treatment, for then we concentrate on what the image is saying to us and not what colors are showing up and whether the color balance is correct. Might try to B&W some of the game shots and see what they look like.

Hope you don't mind but I had a play with the picture. It looks to me that all you did was turn all the sliders down. If you don't want these edits here let me know and I will take them down.

There are lots and lots of ways you can edit black and white probably more ways than you can edit colour I suspect these are just two very quick examples that give totally different results.

Jeff moved the site to a cheaper hosting option. As uploaded photos take up space and data traffic that he has to pay for it may be that this is an issue with his deal with the hosting site rather than any hacking related problem.
Flickr, Picassa, Photobucket and other free hosted sites are a much easier place from a user management point of view anyway and don't forget that if this site or any other forum that hosts images closes all images there will be lost.

dpr on the bottom right of the photo there should be a funny looking box with an arrow coming out of it, when you click on that choose the option to grab the html/bb code, then select BB code from the checkbox and just copy and paste it into the post. its pretty easy once you know how. beautiful image aswell btw.

What Rooz is trying to say is to go to your Flickr photo and click on the upload icon (the box with the arrow in the bottom right corner) select "Grab the HTML/BB Code" then select the size you want (1024 pixels wide is good) and "BB code". Copy the text in the box and paste it into a forum post

If you are using the method above your post before you hit the post reply button should look something like this (I have added spaces so no picture appears)

[ u r l=h t t p://www.flickr.com/photos/rreeve/9699919860/][ i m g ]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7417/9699919860_ef179a758d_b.j p g[/ i m g][/ u r l]

If you post as above (without spaces) you will get the following

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7417/9699919860_ef179a758d_b.jpg (http://www.flickr.com/photos/rreeve/9699919860/)

If you do not want the line of text under your picture delete the second line of info from Flickr so your post looks like this

[ u r l=h t t p://www.flickr.com/photos/rreeve/9699919860/][ i m g ]http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7417/9699919860_ef179a758d_b.j p g[/ i m g][/ u r l]

It's pretty easy when you get the hang of it.

If you are posting from Flickr this way DO NOT use the insert picture icon.

I like the ruffled feathers of the in-flight egret. Mostly herons here along the river and they are easily spooked. They usually see me before I notice them. I have much better success getting close in a kayak than walking the shore. Sometimes I can drift inside 40 feet. The egrets here are rarely close enough to the shore. If you want closeups of waders the place to go is Gatorland in Orlando. They nest in the trees on the island in the park. The gators keep egg predators away from the base of the trees. I have seen hundreds of egrets there. I need to go back with the DSLR someday.

Finally got out with the camera, briefly, today on the news that Humpback Whales had made their way into the bay for a massive krill-fest. Most were too far out to get a good shot, but it was also feeding time for the local pelicans. Caught a few in formation.

Unfortunately I did not have the 55-200 handy, so this is the best I could do with the 18-105.

Brilliant shot Rooz.
The sub textural analogy pointing to mankind's origins as a water creature is reinforced with the apparently naked child heading eyes closed and hence blindly to the source of human creation. The deliberate placement of the childs right hand in such a way as it appears to be almost touching the camera lens reinforces the contextural feeling of oneness with the viewer as if the child is wanting the viewer to join him in his journey. Your use of black and white strips away the colour and clutter of modern society and introduces a rawness to the image that further reinforces the primal nature of the action that the viewer is witness to.

I have been providing original constructive criticism to several of Rooz's photos lately to try to encourage him through this phase he is in of buying a new camera each week in search of the holy grail of photography. I feel sorry for the guy he has sunk to the $2 sherry in a brown paper bag of cameras the Nikon 1 system and for some reason thinks he is getting good results. We need to band together and help him through this period and if my genuine and heartfelt critique of his images can in any way encourage him back to the true path before irreparable damage has been done then I will feel satisfied.

My work explores the relationship between new class identities and vegetarian ethics.
With influences as diverse as Wittgenstein and Miles Davis, new combinations are synthesised from both simple and complex textures.
Ever since I was a pre-adolescent I have been fascinated by the essential unreality of meaning. What starts out as hope soon becomes corrupted into a dialectic of defeat, leaving only a sense of dread and the chance of a new reality.
As temporal forms become clarified through studious and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with an epitaph for the darkness of our condition.

Permission granted. I agree with Phil on the sky, and I think it lost the overcast effect of the sun being behind a cloud at the time, and it looses a little of the detail. On the other hand it does improve the depth of the shot.

Yup that's what I like about this site. Some great shots. Bikes to Salads, great family shots, some images that are "kind on the eyes" and even a few roos.

How about those ancient temples? :)

And... Tim's Temples (and other shots of Cambodia). :)

Sorry about the omission Tim.

Sorry? It meant to be a joke. Nothing else.

That salad looks good enough to eat, Tim -- although the plastic wrap looks somewhat inedible! :)

Sorry Sir! I tried to cover up the food with Glad Wrap because it's distracting. On second thought I shouldn't.
Now here's some fruit salad.

I agree with DPR, great pics. Too bad I just ate lunch, and my budget won't allow for trips to Cambodia, or anywhere else, for that matter. :p

Yup the appology was tongue-in-cheek. But I do like your images.

The closest I've been to Cambodia is Viet Nam and Thailand.

Thanks all.
I am quite happy with the result too considering what I had to start with. It's from the 16-85, shooting hand held at shutter of 1/10 sec. Photoshop did the rest.
Here's another one.
