Only wish the fence wasn't there! What lens/focal length were you using? And how close to the fence were you?


Yeah, the fence was a bit of a problem. Took this with an RX10 (first edition). I think the lens was maxed out to its 200m. I cropped this from the original which is probably why no EXIF data appears. I honestly don't remember how far from the fence I was. Fairly close I think maybe 1-2 ft.


I asked because with baseball/softball, if you get fairly close to the fence with a long lens, it pretty much disappears. I'm guessing you'd need to be closer than you were, though.
