    These are really cool! Where are you standing while taking them? Are you right by the field? What kind of lens do you use and do you mind sharing your settings?

    Fantastic shots! Excellent timing. Assuming you used shot bursts, if not an even better accomplishment! Sports photography can be some of the most challenging shot opportunities.

    Thanks for the looks and the comments. I am on the sidelines and I vary my position based on the game action. I shot Nikon and I am using both the 70-200 zoom and the 300 mm lens in these shots. With a day game with plenty of light I shot in aperture priority at about f5.6 on this day and will not let my shutter speed go below 1/500 by adjusting the ISO as light comes and goes.

    Great work, Larry! That last one of the girl with the ball headed for her face made me laugh out loud

    My favorite is the one of the two girls about to crack heads. That's kinda scary but it makes for a great photo.

    Thanks for the look and the comments John. Soccer has become one of my favorite sports to shoot, but then I say that about all of them now that I think about it.

    Nice stuff there Larry, as for action I would say #2 and #4 nailed it. Like PJ, the last one gave me a good smile. I got out an shot a little youth soccer this season to get a little practice. I am sure you heard, here in Indy we have a new Pro Soccer team The Indy 11. I am planning on making it to many of the home games to shoot maybe next year I will have something other than cars, motorcycles and bicycles to show.

    Thanks for the look and the kind words. Soccer is about to windup here. Hope to get in a lot more next season. On to basketball.

    Re: Sunday Soccer

    Hello! My first post. Great images! The players athleticism is apparent in these images.
    Mind if I ask which DSLR you used? You mentioned the lenses, I assume these were shot with your D700?
    I'm in the upgrade process and looking into used full frame Nikons for college level lacrosse. I would also like to know if you crop in PP. It's hard to get close with FF unless you have the $'s for the pro lenses.

    Re: Sunday Soccer

    Not sure which images were with which camera but I generally always shoot with two the D3s and D700. One is mounted on the monopod with the 300mm f2.8 the other I have on a sling strap with the 70-200 f2.8 VRII. I shoot in raw and every image I post has had some PP done to it that generally will always include a crop of some sort. Thanks for the interest in my images and the questions and comments.
