    I agree with Eric..great acton...really tough lighting...What was EV at -.3 ?
    For my track shots I had to go to -0.7 to help with the bright lighting..
    I know it my shots were at a different time of day but just wondering if that
    would have helped...

    Have you ever tried a CPL filter ? I have one but don't use it much ..I may try it
    just to see this week if we get some consistant sun aroud these parts.

    EV was at -.3 will give a try at -0.7 next time to see if that helps 3pm game high sun having to pretty much shot in to it to get any shots on the offensive side of field

    Yeah, white uniforms at midday= nightmare. Good action sequences though.

    If you are shooting in RAW I think it is better to have a slightly darker image to start and then adjust in pp....That way you can control the whites a little better..
     
  7. tighten the crops
    watch the highlites
    i wouldn't have posted 4&6, nothing worth seeing
    i also prefer to see the ball in more shots
     
  8. i would not recommend a cpl filter for sports
    shoot raw and keep lowering ev until you get the histogram off the rt wall

    Great look at the defenders eye contact with the offense in #5.

    In tough lighting, I will general shoot in manual mode after metering for the highlights or shadows depending on the situation.
