    Flush!

    First exhibition game of the season for Morehead Sate University and new head coach Sean Woods. They hope to get lots more flushes like this one this season.

    Larry,

    So now is it mostly lookers with minimal replies?

    I'm eagerly awaiting the start of the basketball season as I view your shots of the player making a dunk shot and hanging on to the rim afterward. I'm always thrilled when I occasionally manage to capture one of those plays. Great action shots, although on my monitor it looks like they are a bit on the dark side and would have benefited from a bit more exposure either at the scene or via later editing.

    Bob

    Thanks for the look and the comments Bob. I think you are right in that we are getting a lot more lookers and fewer contributors. A few years ago we were a hot bed for sports pics but many of the regulars seemed to have drifted off. As to the images being dark that is the way I choose to process them to try and keep the look real and over processed. Just a personal preference type of thing.

    Good to hear from you Daniel. It's getting close to HS basketball time hope to see some Western Kentucky action from you. I do love the D700 but am coveting a D3s more and more these days. I'll be shooting more basketball Sunday afternoon, but it's the finals of the OVC volleyball tournament tonight for me.

    Basketball is the easiest for me to cover because I know the game well and can anticipate the action. College volleyball is the toughest for me, fast action and I just don't know the game strategies well enough.
