    Pretty good. They seem so blue to me though. Are you using film or digital?

    How close to the glass are you? Are you using polarizer? They do look blue. Could the lighting be causing that? Cold air cause darker blue. (ultra blue?)

    Perhaps the auto white-balance setting misdiagnosed the light temp.

    Hockey is such a fast-paced sport, but it's interesting to see the players looking seemingly so relaxed!

    This is reason #472 that I like photography: Sports are seen in a completely different light.

    Thanks for sharing these...

    Thanks for sharing these. I too agree with the blueness, however I believe that is caused by the special lighing used at the arena's. They are very blue on their own.

    I would have really like to see a shot that portrayed more action and emotion. Most of these left me fealing flat.

    Actually - believe it or not - the ice itself reflects blue cast - just as snow does in shaded areas.

    Awesome shots! I've found when shooting hockey games that I need to set my white balance to incandescent lighting. If I leave it on auto, it tends to either blue out like yours did or yellow out if the lights have just come up (the mercury vapor and metal halide lighting used in arenas shifts color temps as it heats up).

    Those are some great shots though! I wish I had access to an NHL team closeby! :-( At least the CHL games here in Indy are cheap! I can almost afford season tics! Plus the organization isn't so picky about giving out photographer's passes--I might get to spend some game-time IN the penalty box this coming weekend! woooohooo, can't wait!!!

    Here are some photos that I got at this past weekend's game:
