A couple of nice pix here, Ringo. But the last shot -- you mention that it is cropped. To be frank, I think you've cropped it too tightly.

What lens were you using? The 40-150?

Cheers, geoff

The lens here is the 75-300.

As to cropping, you are probably right. My goal was to reduce some distractions in the shot and get it to the principal action. I may not have left enough open space aound the players, I can agree with that.

Is there a source for reading where I get some rules of thumb for cropping?

Thanks for the input.

No source I know of, Ringo, except general photo instruction. Of course, there is the old rule of thirds, both horizontally and vertically, to use as the jumping off point.

In the end, it is really a matter of personal taste, I think -- and since a photo is a communication, in most cases, we are trying to communicate to others what we saw and how it made us feel, it needs to satisfy viewers too.

Cheers, geoff
