Hey gents, been a while since Ive wandered these halls. Its good to be back. I see there are still some great shots being posted. Since my son decided to forego basketball for wrestling, I havent shot any round ball since last summer....and it showed! Slow to the action, fumbled with the settings and still not happy with the exposures. Anyway, here's a couple of shots from last night. These are 8th graders. C&C always welcomed. D3 and 70-200 @f/2.8, ISO 6400, 1/400sec. A real barn!

Really nice shots. Good action and sharpness. WB is a bit on the cool side to my eyes - probably because of the influence of the blue on the camera's AWB. As with most gyms, best results are usually with a manual white balance.

Really like that 2nd shot though! Especially as you were able to include a bit of net to provide context.

Thanks for looking boss. I actually adjusted the levels on my work computer before posting them. They looked too "red" LOL. DOH!!
