Mizzou Spring Football Game

Football is a coming.

Had a good afternoon getting some time shooting the Mizzou Spring Football game. It was fun, uncrowded, and got to make some nice pictures. Shot with the D3 and 400mm f/2.8 - handholding it most of the time. Sweet lens, but I wanted more reach.

Follwing image looks best in Safari, since it handle's color profiles and shows the depth of the greens wayy better than FireFox.

Finally, a field goal picture I actually like!

And some fans and the players interacting after the game:

Which do you prefer?

Can't wait for August!

The little boy in the last two photos is so entranced by the football

Is that the massive lens you sent a picture of in iChat?

edges normally don't vignette themselves when using a 400, but whatever ;)

I like the first one, but I wanna see it sans vignette

Cool stuff. I prefer the first shot of the little boy - you get more of the "wow, mom, it's a real, live, ginormous football player" in that one.
