Sports with D800 (pics)

Recently had friends of the family come down to the desert for a Lacrosse Tournament. It was called the Sandstorm tournament and was very large and included teams comprising girls and boys of high school age.

I haven't shot sport since High School so thought it would be a good test for me and the D800. All shots were A priority at f5.6 using my 70-200 2.8.

Shot a little over 70 images. About 5 or so were OOF, mostly due to my technique. One grabbed the background I believe due to my hurry to shoot before correct focus was obtained. DOF is easily seen by the sharpness of the grass.

Some cropping done to isolate action.

I inadvertently uploaded without exif but can provide if desired. Viewing gallery at original size is much sharper than clicking on the image.
