I went to the Extreme sports festival in Barcelona yesterday.
Taking photos with my D700 I learnt two things:
1. That f/5 is too high for sports photography....the background needs to be totally blurred when there is so much going on in the shot.
2. I definitely needed a speedlite flash (which was unfortunately stolen at a music festival last year).
not exactly my favourite type of photography, but loads of fun.
Here are a few of the shots. More on flickr too.
