I managed to score tickets to the first day of the Sydney test yesterday, and despite a wet start to the day we got a full day of cricket and some reasonable pictures. We were quite a way back in the cheap seats, so a long lens (40-150mm) was needed for much of it and there were quite a few obstructions. Still, the ashes gallery shows that I got some decent ones, the plum being the shot above of Bell's fall of wicket from way back at the rear of the stand. It cropped down fairly well considering, though the fast ISO speed also made it a tad grainy. Check the gallery for more.
