    These were taken at the Activision event at the Staples Center in LA for the giant E3 gaming convention. These are just a few of my favorites from the set. What astonishes me is how well they turned out considering how far away I was. All shots taken at ISO 3200 on my 7D with 70-200 IS II.

    This was for E3 and I came as registered media. So not only did I get full media access to everything at E3, but I got whatever media access granted me there too :) I could have been down on the floor, but I always prefer to be a little higher up. Second section ain't too bad. I just wish I was on the other side because the camera crane got in many of my shots :(

    Also in regards to the pics themselves, you can see the difference Lightroom 3's noise reduction has improved. I forgot to NR on the first pic, but have it on all the others. 3200 still looks pretty good, but the others are significantly cleaner, without much (if any) sacrifice to detail. 7D + LR3 = happy. :)

    #4 is great!

    Maybe its my eyes, but the noise reduction on #3 seems a bit too aggressive.

    Perhaps a bit, but I think it makes a nice effect and works for that image.
