Was browsing through my archives to see if I could find a Sports Mode photo and found this. This is my grandson getting a hit. Note the ball is in flight. Not sure if this was SM but settings are: f/4.5, 1/640, ISO-3200, 0 step, 95mm.
Might have been a bit closer to eliminate the net but gives the perspective of a spectator. Thanks for the complement. I stumble onto a decent shot once in a while. I have one of my granddaughter who runs track & field. Shows her with both feet off the ground.
