Grasshoppers v Southport 2014.11.30

We're back at rugby, Spencer's enjoying playing again and I'm enjoying watching and taking photos.  This is my favourite from the match against Southport on 30th November.  I've done a little bit of detail extraction using Nik Collection, reduced the saturation and a slight crop.

So far this season the weather's been very kind, obviously this won't last forever - I remember previous years and what the winter weather's like.

PSC Club Championships

We got the oppertunity to take photos at the PSC Club Championships recently.  It was great to be able to take photos at this event.  The lighting at the venue was a little challenging, but I guess it would take a lot for me to be happy with the lighting at any swimming event :)

I was happy with how the D800 and 70 - 200 performed, especially in the challenging conditions.  There were a couple of shots that I missed, but only one or two.  As we had access to poolside the 70 - 200 had sufficient reach to get the nearest three lanes when shooting from the side.
