  2. WOW!

    I just noticed that your action photographs cover a larger area of the field and this improves the perception of the batsman’s skill. The balance, the footwork moving the body into the drive etc. are all clearer. If this larger coverage of the action is due to your being restricted to use of the 200 mm lens, it has really worked in your favour. (If this comment displays my total ignorance of photography, I apologise for it; please laugh long and loud at it and forget it (:P ).

    • Thank you & I wouldn’t dream of laughing at you! I have to say it is mainly down to the lens but your comment has certainly made me think about sometimes cropping less heavily in future.
