    I guess I will give the thread a starting point.

    I took this shot in March of 09 in what was Sacramento's "Tent City." Probably my most powerful shot. I used it as the lead shot in my photo essay. She more or less represented the majority of the people living in tent city; young, moved a lot from city to city,a drug habit of one kind or another. She was very jittery. Always on the move and talking faster than I could keep up with about the many things the city should have done to keep the tent city in place while keeping it safe and sanitary for those who had to live there.

    Shot with a Nikon D300, 17-55mm f/2.8 @ 17mm, f/10, to show the environment around her. ISO 1250 with shutter speed of 1/1600th, to freeze her quick movements on a cloudy day. Underexposed to maintain the detail in the cloudy sky and white tents.

    Taken with a Nikon D300, and an 80-200 F/2.8. Settings were 1/800th, F/2.8, ISO 3200 @ 100mm.

    This was taken at the American Collegiate Hockey Association Division 2 National Championships in Simsbury, CT this past March. It was a breakaway, deke to the backhand and flipped it up and into the net. This was our front page shot for the school newspaper (I've had many more front page shots, but this was by far the best capture). This was at an "olympic" sized rink, so I had a little more space to get a shot like this...I don't think I would've gotten as good of a shot at an NHL sized rink.

    Great shots so far guys I really like the story behind your photo Hooligan Dan very powerful for sure.

    I myself was a hockey player have to say that was my favorite deke too. Always worked hah. Right now I am unfortunately at work so I can't post any photos right now. My main sport photography is Rugby and then Football. So I will post some shots I took last season.

    One of my faves from today's race, I like the angle and the sky combined with the contrasting colours of the clothing/grass/sky.
