Sometimes I do. I have NeatImage and have had varied results with it. One thing I am used to is seeing the noise in the photo as I took a lot of photos with film that was pushed to 1600. Most of the shots I take during basketball season wind up in one or the other of the local newspapers (kinda neat I supply competing papers with photos:G).

Nice shots. The noise doesnt seem too much of a factor. But im interested in your white balance. The pic im looking at seem kind of reddish. Was it set on auto.

Yes it was on auto, the lighting in that gym is different. I am still trying to get a good white balance on it, plus the school colors are orange and black and the gym is done in a lot of orange

Yeah, gyms are terrible... I always custom balance and usually get good results except one time... I was shoting wrestling. Did the normal custom WB. Things looked good but when I got home seemed the guys had a green tint to them... I thought, what the heck! Then it dawned on me! It was the reflection of the light OFF THE GREEN MATS! :?
