Here are some pictures from the U.S. Open.

As some of the players can be considered eye candy for the ladies of the CCB, I have included some pictures of the rack girls for the guys. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Unfortunately, due to some events within the last year, I have to make the following statement:

Any reproduction or use of these pictures, without my written permission, is prohibited.


T.K. getting busy.

Rich,

What camera/lens were you using, and what were the settings?

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote SpiderMan:</font><hr> Rich,

SpiderMan <hr /></blockquote>
It was a Canon EF 70-200mm (auto focus) zoom lens, with image stabilizer on a Canon 10D body. Because of the changing conditions, I use the aperature priority automatic exposure setting. On the main TV table, I was using an ISO 400, but on the other tables, with less light, I used ISO 1600.
All photos were taken hand held.
I also may have made some general lighting and contrast corrections, on some pictures, in photoshop.

Hope this is what you wanted. Let me know if you need any more information.

Wow, Rich! You out-did yourself this year. These pictures are, without a doubt, the BEST quality I have ever seen.

When I post pictures on the Internet, I must reduce the pixels, thereby losing some of the clarity and quality. However, your pictures are crisp, clean, and perfect. The color is outstanding.

Thanks so much for sharing. I really enjoy seeing them! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
