    Picked up a 70-200mm f/2.8 today, and tonight was a men's hockey game between UWO and the Ryerson Rams. UWO raced out to a 2-0 lead, but 5 straight unanswered goals from Ryerson put the game beyond doubt.

    Caveat: UWO's site doesn't have the player numbers on it and I didn't pick up a sheet with the team info. My mistake.

    Good stuff, hockey can be tough. I like the action you've caught, but the color seems a little of (blue) and most could use a crop.

    Did you shoot these through the glass? They came out great if you did.

    Good work Stu! Nice stop-action stuff, and you did well with the white uniforms against white ice and boards.

    Nice shots! I speak from experience here, shooting hockey is tough. Extremely tough. One, the lighting in a lot of arenas is subpar at best. Two, well, there's glass between you and the action using the best perspective. And three, it is an extremely fast sport. I've been using a fixed 180mm f/2.8 Nikon for my shooting, but I'm picking up a 70-200 VR soon, and these shots just make me more excited for that focal range. Very nice shooting here, Stu is it? Just curious, auto-focus or manual-focus?

    nice series

    PS: I’ve hear that collapse rubber light hood are nice to have, so than when a player hits the glass that you’re shooting thru the camera does not push in to your eye as fast, giving you a spit second more to react

    Like #9, great angle. Like how you caught it right after the good ol 'Stang took the shot.
