Just wanted to post a couple and maybe get some C&C on them.

Tough lighting conditions, to be sure. I was just wondering if they are acceptable to the great photogs that shot soccer on this forum.

Taken with the 300 f/4 AF-ED. (Best I can afford at the moment.)

No choice but to shot somewhat into the sun at mid-day.
f/4, Matrix, EV=Neutral, SS=1/3200, iso 200

a fine job of getting light on the faces
were these at f4 ?
what metering mode
what EV ?
exif ?

the 300/4 is a great lens for soccer and in some ways better than many alternatives due to it's light weight and fast focusing

Thanks for looking Randy. Sorry, edited to put in exif. I forgot that smugmug strips it when posted.

for even more light on the faces in backlit situations try CW or even spot metering and positive EV, start with +.3 and chimp your way along. Forget the backgrounds blowing, it's inevitable to get more light on the faces. stay at f4, that lens rocks wide open and your backgrounds look good

if u post the 'O' version sm keeps the exif intact....i almost never remember to post the 'O' versions because I don't resize to 1280 in post but sometimes I use the microsoft resize tool to resize to 1024, then posting the 'O' version works out

Thanks for the advice Randy. You are exactly right with the comments on blowing out the background. Thats why I stuck with Matrix, but if you are saying that there really isn't a way around it, I will try it next time.

Thanks again.
