    ...and a boxing match broke out! No really! :lol: They had a boxing ring set up just off the ice and had some local boxers come in between periods. Got some weird lighting, as they shined the arena searchlights through the end-netting onto the ring. Anyway, got a couple shots that I thought were pretty emotive and interesting.

    (The grain is from shooting at ISO 1600 and then still having to increase brightness some.)

    some cool shots, dude! maybe a little crop here, a little crop there...

    to get rid of digital noise, as in #2, try converting to lab colors, click on a channel, gaussian blurr till all dots are gone,
    click on channel b click ctrl-f to apply exact amount of gb as channel a

    convert back to rgb....

    I actually put some extra grain into that one. Thought it brought out the contrasting colors a bit more. :oops: Back to the drawing board, I guess!


    Good tips on removing the grain. I'm definitely going to give that a try! Thanks!

    don't get me wrong- i like 'em anyway, and the extra grain in the bw works for the subject. i definitely like the emotion you caught in each one. try the gb filter on luminosity channels a & b- you might be surprised. i wonder if you boosted contrast in rgb afterward if you'd get the best of both worlds?
