Attached 2 images from last night and processing practice with suggestions from previous post. Still using f2.8 and ISO 1250 1/400- 1/500. Past suggestions too late for last nights photos.

Great photos, how do you like the 30d? I was looking at it or the XTi, the latter because of price since I can upgrade to something else when I get more $$.

Who was using flash - you or someone else?

The colors here look a little wrong and the white jereseys look flash-burned but the faces are way under-exposed. Looks like too low of an exposure and too much flash.

Or is that the result of post processing?

Looks like playing at night with strong lights and reflective jerseys.

Original file was underexxposed so probably the effects are from processing. Hey a beginner. Will keep trying to correct. Thanksfor the comments.

2nd attempt is much better. Good job! But I still encourage you to try and get the exposure right in-camera. The end results will be even better still.

It doesn't have to be using ISO 3200. It can be using a flash - so long as the flash isn't mounted on the camera and you get a natural looking shot.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Flash can sometimes be the only way to get the shot - but you have to realize the limitations of a flash.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"And, to be honest, I haven't seen a lot of people that use a flash well with football. Most either try from too far away, push way too much power or leave it on camera and end up with 'monster eye'.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"It also doesn't help that Canon has 1/250 sych speed and putting a flash in high speed synch really drops the effective range. AND you have to deal with recycle times.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"So, its worth continuing to work the flash route - it's an alternative to 3200 (and sometimes a necessary alternative)

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Best of luck!
