Slapshot!

By kilo363
1/800s
f2.8
ISO 3200 (#1) ISO 2800 (#2 and 3) I was on auto ISO
Aperture and shutter speed were set manually

Another from last weekend hockey training session, A series of 3 catching Andy just as he's shooting for goal. I prefer #3 simply for the expression on his face, but the puck is long gone

Basic straightening, cropping, lights/levels and white balance is the pp I've done

This session was really to get me some practice with a new camera body before doing it for real on Friday coming.

Thanks for all previous comments and suggestions, much appreciated

I don't think there's much in it between #2 and #3.

The reason that #1 isn't so strong is that both players look very static, with both feet planted firmly on the ground. You could probably get a near-identical shot by asking the players to pose. The other two don't have the puck but they're unmistakably action shots and there's no doubt that Andy's just given it a good whack.

Yes, 2 and 3 very good, 1 not quite the same. Nothing really to add. Good sports images.
