  1. Great photos Yan, you really get great action photos….I can see you have a very nice quick lens…I need a new telephoto with a fast lens.

    • Thanks Maureen!
      I was lucky to get these photos at the athletic festival. I took them with my PENTAX K200D but I found the camera cannot satisfy me for sports shooting…
      For the lens I used, I made mistyping. It should be “1:4-5.6” instead of “1.4-5.6”!! It’s not quick one, sorry for that.

      • Ah yes that lens isn’t that fast. I think your photos are very good.

        I have a K20 and find that my canon 50D is a better camera for taking photos of action.

      • I agree with you. My friends sometimes ask me what is the best DSLR for him/her. When their purpose is to take picture of their kids, I usually recommend CANON or NIKON.

        BTW, have you already checked PENTAX K-r and K-5? K-r is now on sale and K-5 will be released by the end of this month, though I keep on using my K200D and K-x for the time being.

    These are fantastic!! I wish you could come and give me a lesson on how to capture movement like you do. I love the intense looks on the boys faces. It is neat, as well, seeing them pass the baton!

    You take spectacular photographs, yancunyong!

    • Thanks Freedom!
      I wish I were in your city.
      I want to try panning with more slow shutter speed next time. I didn’t want to get too much blur so I selected shutter speed of 1/125 and 1/320 this time.

      Please try to take photos in front of exchange zone where drama can happen :)

  3. I agree with everyone else — you do such a great job of getting people in motion!
