One of the neighboring towns changed the lighting in their gym. Much to my surprise it is MUCH better and probably one of the best gyms to take photos in. Like any gym it still hashot spots for lighting. During the game I used the Tv Mode at 1/500 and the F-stop went from 2.0 to 3.5 depending on where the action was located.



Canon Digital Rebel w/ Canon 50mm F/1.8 lens

ISO 1600 1/500 f/2.0 Tv Mode

I hate people who post perfect shots lol

VERY nice shot, k1. Great exposure and your timing on this is impeccable.

And did they still call it a foul with this kind of proof? I swear all my blocks were clean.

Great shot. I like seeing the height off the floor.

Nicely done....... I wish that I could jump that high...... would really help out my Volleyball (ok so this is BB but I will want to jump that high!!!!).

Great result for 1600. What have you done to the shot to clean it up?

Did post processing with Photoshop Elements 2.0, auto on levels and color correction and used NoisewarePro on the weak noise setting to clean up the grain a little.

Amazed you could get it all in focus at F2.0.

Incredible timing! Great shot.

Same advise on the horizon when you crop.

Africa - I think that you have it wrong about the horizon on this...... it is all to do with the perspective.K1park took this from the left hand side so to straighten up the horizon would make a very peculiar shot and the players would be jumping sideways!! Well IMHO. Mark.

Excellent! Best shot I've seen in a while. Technically very good but even more important it's a great capture of peak action!

Well done!
