    All the money you spend on gear and your *photography* hasn't improved one
    bit, Bret.

    The heck it hasn't! You weren't here in the early days. His photography
    has improved immeasurably, and these are pretty good, for what they are,
    boys pretending to be men playing a boys' game! ;-)

    These are pretty good, Brett. Is that the same John Hannah who used to play
    for the Bills?

    pics.
    I think I do OK.

    My pics are certainly better than what the local paper's photographers
    shoot at the same events. Here's one they printed on the first page of
    the sports section this morning

    The photgrapher, Angela Lewis, was using a big 500mm lens on her Nikon.
    They prefer the tight heavily cropped closeup shots. These get boring
    after you view a few hundred of them. I like shooting with the Super
    70-200 f/2.8L since it gives a slightly wider FOV and gives more of a
    feel for what's going on in the game.

    Yes, you do. Night sports looks easy, but the reality is that the light
    is at least three full stops less than a partly cloudy day (and can be as
    much as six full stops when compared to a sunny day). Three full stops
    pulls your "action" photos at 1/250 down to 1/30, and you can pretty much
    forget about getting any depth of field.

    I've recently started doing some night sports photography (softball), and
    it's very tough without a fast zoom lens with fast autofocus *and* good
    instincts.

  8. I agree. After taking thousands of slides with excellent equipment, and
    inspecting everyone of them with a good loupe, I can say that Bret's posted
    shots are technically excellent. I can't speak to their artistic value, but
    then, that's not my interest either. All I care about with my own
    photography is its ability to capture the scene with as much truth and
    clarity as possible. That's what I try to do, and that's what Bret manages
    to do very very well.

    No, it's the John Hannah who played for the Patriots and was voted the
    Greatest Offensive Lineman of All-Time. Nice guy, too.
    When he joined the team this year he met with the guys and told them,
    "Boys, I get pretty excited when I talk about football. And when I get
    excited, I sometimes cuss. So what I'm going to do is whenever I say a
    swear word, I'll put $5 in this jar. At the end of the year, I'll take
    all the money out and buy every one of you a pizza."

    After last night's game, they might be eating steak.

    Y'know, I was thinking he played for the Pats, but for some reason, could
    only envision him with that stupid striped buffalo on his helmet. I'm glad
    he's not in the area, he'd probably pound me a little shorter than I already
    am! ;-)

    Not at all, there's none on this group qualified to call me idiot. It would
    be akin to, pot calling the kettle black. ;-]

    Since when has any qualification stopped anyone from making a comment around
    here???? (again, wink, wink, nudge, nudge!)
