"D7100 on Holiday..."

The D7100 seems pretty adaptable... I'm finding the AF very accurate, and the overall performance extremely reliable.

Bill, what glass were you using for the shot of the pitcher?

Sorry Bill, another question I forgot to ask. How far were your seats from the pitchers mound? Here is why I'm asking. My step son is getting married at the end of this week. I'll be in Denver and the father in law is taking about 75 close family members to the Rockies, Cleveland game. My son want's me to get some pictures for him and his media room. I'm thinking of taking the 70-200 f/2.8 with TC20EIII or my 70-300 f4.5/5.6. I know we will be in section 245 of Cooers Field but I have no idea how far that is from the pitchers mound or home plate. What would you suggest?

Section 245 in Coors field is a club-level outfield location. You will be upwards of 300 feet away from home plate and from the pitcher's mound. You will also be elevated above the field, looking down on play. In short, you aren't likely to get shots like Bill's from there regardless of lens.

Were I you, I would concentrate on documenting the fun the group is having, using the field as a backdrop rather than a primary subject. Just a thought.

Jon, thanks for the input. Is there any restriction for me to be walking around maybe getting closer to make some shots? I've never been to this ball park before. And additional advice would be helpful.

I can't say about Coors Field because I've never been there. But most of the places I have been have security staff monitoring the lower levels near the field. You may have to display a ticket to get down there. Even if not, if you get down there and don't have a seat and are just standing there, it's likely that security will come over and require you to leave.

OK, not so bad. It is always easier to ask forgiveness than permission. I'm a tourista I just didn't know. LOL

My seat was 6 rows above the Visitor's Dugout, and the posted shot is uncropped...

If I were you, where you're sitting, I'd bring a wide-angle, and focus on the family in the foreground, with the stadium and game rounding out the image as a backdrop. That could be a very neat shot. If it's an evening game, use the light at sundown, etc...

Thanks Bill. Same question again to you, is there any chance for walking around to get closer to the home plate action without upsetting security? I don't really want to take my 50-150 Sigma because it is just too freaking big for me to hand hold and to conspicuous for in stand shooting.

Regardless of the long glass I'm taking the 24-70 f/2.8 Tamron with me.

I've been to Coors, and depending on how much Chutzpah you have, it's possible to scope out an empty seat in a great section, act like you belong there, and calmly go for it as people move in and out of the section. In the later innings, attendants tend to get more lenient.

If stopped, politely explain your dilemma and the desire to get one or two close-ups... The worst that can happen is they say no...

Chutzpah I'm not short on. Plus I'm retired military and wear a hat that says so. Maybe that will help.

Thanks for the input. I know this will be helpful.
