David,

I really like the composition in 3, 5 & 6. And they all appear to be fairly sharp. But all the photos in this sequence appear to be over a stop underexposed. I don't have an exif viewer here at work, so I can't see the settings. If you're already shooting at max ISO and max aperture then you need to use a flash in this gym (most basketball games allow flash use). The underexposure keeps these shots from being as good as they could be.

I shot these in manual 1/500, f2.8 , ISO1600 and used my Sigma 28-70 f2.8. I probably should have shot them at 1/400 or even 1/320. Flash is definately something frowned on at this gym. Interestingly enough, on my monitor at home they look perfect, here at work they are dark.

That is strange about the monitors. Although, the only 2 gyms I've ever been in where I could get 1/500 at 2.8 and ISO 1600 are a college gym and a pro gym. Every other place required either ISO 3200 at 2.8 or the use of a 2.0 lens.

Look at my other two posts. I dont have the exif on those because i pulled them off my website and they were stripped but they were shot at f3.2 and 1/800

That gym has terrible hotspots and one picture will look great and 2 feet overeverything is blown out with the same settings.

As for the monitor thing, i use a 19 inch widescreen LCD at home which is naturally brighterand at work its a just a garden variety 17 inch regular monitor. That probably explains the difference
