Unintended Humour?

…or pain?

I posted this image on Saturday night shortly after returning from shooting at the UT/OSU game in Texas Memorial Stadium. At the time, I titled it “Touchdown!” but, now that I look at it again, I’m wondering if “Illegal Ball Handling” may be a better title? 🙂

Although I was shooting for the UT band, I managed to grab a few shots of the game action when it came close to the end zone I was standing at. With the play inside the 20yd line, the 70-200mm f/2.8 lens I was using for my band close-ups was ideal and I ended up with clean images of 2 of the game touchdowns.

I’ll post a longer article on the whole experience later but, in the meantime, I’m off to rent a 2x teleconverter for next week’s (daytime) game since I think a 140-400mm f/5.6 would be rather helpful.
