    I spent the weekend with my dad in Alabama, and we went to a rodeo. I didn't have my thrifty 50 to or a sweet f2.8 zoom, but I managed to capture a couple of decent shots. These are all hand held. There were a couple other photog...and they didn't have the slightest clue on how to use their cameras...one lady kept asking me how to get shots, etc. :hs:

    I know these aren't the best, or are perfectly in focus...I didn't have very much light to work with, and had to constantly pan on the action, with slow shutter speeds. :greddy:

    Like I said - I was at 1/40 f 4.5 ISO1600, and panning. I was also like 40' away from the action. :hs:

    I kinda like them. I think they'd be better with tighter crops.
