Nice pics, that's Wozniacki that you were asking about.

Did you meet any of the players or get autographs?

I met John McEnroe, Boris Becker when I first got there. They were walking towards the millennium building.

I got the Bryan brothers' autograph, Kohlschreiber's and Ivanovich's. That's all as I didn't want to stand there all day waiting for players to come in and out. The photos of the players above were in a hurry to get somewhere so I only got photos.

This was my first time seeing pro tennis live...and seeing it on Centre Court with a seat that was basically court-side was awesome!

Safina looks pissed somebody should put her out of her misery.
It would be nice to see her lose another Slam final in stright sets :lol:

I'm rooting for Venus all the way. Woznacki is hot though i gotta give her that.

Great photos man, You got to watch Federer on center court :)

Post the picture of Federer from the 'behind' angle. People keep say he was wearing a vest when it's really a waistcoat. Post it so people can see.

All of these photos have been post-processed because I snapped in RAW format and you alway need to process RAW photos.

My camera is a Nikon D90 DSLR. As you can imagine... these photos are very low quality compared to my originals as they had to be to upload to the web.

The Fed serve photo is photoshopped to create that effect... I applied a mask around Fed and applied a Gaussian blur in the background.

And actually this is my fav. Fed shot I took that day:



Wish you guys could see this pic in high quality :) It's really great... think I'll get a poster print of this one.

Same pic in slightly different aspect ratio:

Players have to be dressed in white even when practicing? Or was this a warmup for the match?
Apparently for practicing aswell! This was on an outside court, about an hour before he was due on, hitting with the chinese guy federer played monday
 
fungus.

no, not really, just that something weird happened to the filter applied to the pic, I guess
Nothing weird here. You applied the mask around Roger, keeping him sharp. Unfortunately, the snippet of the crowd that can be seen through the strings of his racquet are also part of that mask--so that background is still sharp, while the rest of the crowd had the gaussian blur filter applied. It's fixable but time consuming.
