    I know we normally just post one image in the critque gallery but all these are from the same series and have the same problems I thought I could go ahead and post them all in one thread just to give you more idea as to what my problem is.

    I honestly can't remember if these were shot at sunset or during dark but they all turned out with the whitish sky. They seem very grainy but I believe that is from using the 1600 film. Any advice on these shot is greatly appreciated.

    Camera: Canon EOS Elan 7ne
    Lens: 75-300mm
    Film: 1600
    Most shot at 300mm and all with monopod
    I can't remember my settings but my exposure meter was always indicated as exposed properly.
    I used auto focus for all of them.

    Thanks Again

    Presumably neg.
    1600 ISO does give a fair bit of grain - you've only got there what one would expect.
    As for the sky. Colour neg can only cope with about 4 or 5 stops. If you expose for the shadows in the foreground then the sky will come out white.
    If you expose for the sky then the foreground will come out very dark.
    The compromise is somewhere in between.
    You have to decide which is more important in the shot - the action or the sky.
    I would say the action, which you have captured. The sky isn't important so I wouldn't worry about it.
