Three and out

"Toronto Blue Jays batter Edwin Encarnacion #10 falls over as he flys-out against the Baltimore Orioles in the ninth inning during their MLB American League baseball game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland on April 25, 2012."

I'm a sucker for shooting from an elevated position. Clean backgrounds are such a wonderful thing.

I've been playing more with teleconverters despite their erratic focusing issues on my Nikons. When I shot with Canon gear while living in Utah, I never once had an issue with images not being sharp.

Nonetheless, as I've mentioned here before, baseball is about quieter moments - single images that say the story of the game. Thus must be communicated when there isn't much action that speaks the final outcome.

During the last inning the other night, Edwin Encarnacion of the Toronto Blue Jays fell over as he pop-flied out. It appeared as a last ditch effort to crank a home run gone bad. Alas, the Blue Jays dropped another game the Orioles.
