My first attempt at sports photography...

And I'd say you did well! I think there are mysteries of shutter speed and such involved here. I suspect I'm going to need to learn about them if I'm going to take pictures of birds in flight.

Linda -- One of the reasons I bought my Nikon D700 was because of the high ISO capabilities. ISO, if you recall, is like film speed in days of yore. For most of the images, I shot between 1600-6400 ISO. The last group was done in bad light and shot at 8000 ISO. On the D700, that's not much of a problem. High ISO means greater shutter speed. On most other cameras, though, an ISO of 8000 would mean a ruined photo. I have a lot to learn, but it was fun and the results pleased my editor terribly. No raise, though. ;-)
