    Darren, you guys down under are spoiled with your afternoon sports action, but I'm sure someone there is having fits trying to capture sports under poor stadium lighting. Your images look good and it's nice to see good jube shots.

    I'm trying neutral not standard in the sun to try to get more realistic skin tones, standard seems a bit red/magenta/orange

    I think the colors look good in neutral, but did you bump up the saturation in post? I've been shooting in Standard and bumping up saturation in post to +18.

    That being said, the colors in your image are very nice. Skin tones look real good on this monitor.

    Thanks for that suggestion, Darren. I'll try that next time out.

    Great shot, btw. Did you submit #2 to the "Emotions" Challenge?

    Thanks for sharing
     
  11. Darren,

    Real nice! I have been trying neutral on some shots also, especially in bright sunlight. Topher was the one who suggested it to me.

    #3 has the potential for a face plant. #2 I can almost hear him scream!
