Default A few basketball shots with my XSi-Mens basketball

Here are a few shots I took yesterday with my XSi, with a 85mm....My good old Xsi maxed out at ISO 1600...

Nice shots Mark. Good action, good exposure and decent sharpness. Looks like the reds are over-saturated though - so you're getting redish skin tones. Not sure if you bumped saturation (or had it set a bit higher in camera). Tone down the red saturation in post and I think that's an easy fix.

John,
Thanks, I did tweek the saturation, the gym was so blah, I tried to get some color, but I see what you mean.

On sharpness, would they be sharper, if I could get the apt to f/2.8? That would mean I would have to go up in iso. I think what I am getting, is the best I can do with the Xsi....

I think you did really good concidering the circumstance with the iso. Agree with John about the reds though. Maybe tone down the saturation a bit and increase the contrast a little instead? If you havenīt already of course.
That usually make the pic pop a bit.

Best regards/Daniel

Second edit definitely looks better. Good shots as mentioned earlier.
