I'll have more it's just that the first 2 games I shot were really boring.  Then there was a 3 week break until the next home game.  Then again, it's Division II  :D

I used to shoot for All-Pro Photography out of Morgantown for WVU. The problem is, WVU got so big Football wise that they started to let more people on the sidelines...alumni and such and they quit giving out Photog field passes. Really stinks!

A few shots from the last couple weeks (not sure if they are my best, but they are my most recent good ones).

All shot with 5D mkiii, and either the 14mm 2.8LII or the 70-200 2.8 L I with the 2x mkIII on.

Let me know what you think and any critiques you might have...

Here's a few favorites...

Lots of nice angles and captures, but I'm going to be brutally honest here (and I'm not an hdr hater, in fact I am one of it's biggest supporters) but the tonemapping/microcontrast/psudo-HDR look (I'm guessing processed using Topaz Adjust), is so over the top that it is killing these cool images for me.  It's like you pushed it to 11, and not in a good way.

The images are amazing... but the HDR is over the top
