    A couple shots from the playoff game this past weekend. By far one of the best games I've ever seen at any level of play. :D :thumbsup:

    The grain in this one is a by-product of a very long lens and 1600ISO. I was going to try to clean it up, but then kind of liked the gritty, newspaper-y look to it, so decided to leave it.

    Wow. I really like that first one. The combination of short DOF and motion blur bring your attention right to his had. Nice! I like the angles in the third one, too. The contrast in the second one bothers me. It's just white, grey, and black. Their faces blur into the background.

    Yup, we played the 'bugs in the first round. It was a heck of a series--I caught game 3 here in Indy. Looking at the CHL website, you guys won game 5 though. :cry:

    T'is a small world, that's for sure. :D

    Thanks for the comments everyone.

    Question, especially about the first shot (which I like best, as well). Does the color look kind of off to you? The lighting in this building is horrendous--3 or 4 different color temps, so color cast is different depending on where on the ice the players are. PITA to shoot and get a nice color. I tried to correct it in PS, but it still looks a bit off to me. :|

    I love the composition on that last one. It really draws you all the way through the picture. Nice job!

    Here's another from that same night that I'm really pleased with. I wish the DOF were just a tad bit shorter, but I like the 'moment' it captures.

    The color doesn't look off to me. I won't even have questioned it if you hadn't mentioned it.

    The first one is the my favorite of the group. It has a great DOF and composition.

    'k, that's cool. Must just be my overly-self-critical eye. ;-) I tried to base the color corrections off the whites, and it looks like the fleshtones are bit washed to me. :shrug: I guess it's the composition that counts most. :D

    I'd agree that the flesh tones are a little washed out, i don't think the color is the problem tho, the whites are wondefully white, they're just a tad bright
