straight to the basket

By irweazel  
A few shots from my friends school basketball team on there way to the semi finals

tweaked the white balance for indoors - lighting was poor so had to take the gamble with flash and the shutter speed and the film speed
1/200th @ F2.8 with flash

Like the shot, but lighting seems a bit too cool - needs brightening/warming a bit.

it was a tough call - toned it down coz it looked too yellow.
thanks for looking and commenting

Nice result from the new lens Chris, that's going to help with the cycling this year. How about cropping in close to the players on this & rotating it to get it level, think you'd have a bit more impact.

good call, hadn't noticed it wasn't level - whoops, and will crop in again - never sure how tight too crop things

will have another go at it and maybe post again

Chris, I have to rotate almost all of my sports shots, I just can't seem to keep level! I've got a spirit level on top of the camera, but of course I can't see it through the viewfinder! DOH!
