high ISO times

I've never been the biggest fan of shooting Friday night high school football action. Especially those nights when I'm in front of my computer trying to get rid of haggard red eye on an ugly direct-flash photo from a dimly lit field. Using our pool D3, and shooting at iso 6400 at 1/640, makes the whole experience much more enjoyable.

This was from last week, guy actually caught it.

Yeah, dude, I know what you mean. We don't have D3s (or anything close to that) here, in Decatur; so, I shoot every Friday with a D1H and, obviously, full power nasty flash...
Nice pic by the way.
