    In the league that I shoot, I concentrate on the U6-U12 games. More orders. :wink: I do shoot the U15 and U18 when I get a request from a parent, or coach. I had a couple of those requests for this week;

    All with D300, 300 2.8, and 1.4.

    Sweet light, saturated colors, sharpness, action and faces = great soccer shots. I think this is as solid as it gets.
     
  4. very nice Jim, you got a good set there.

    Thanks, Darren.

    Thanks, Frank. Actually, I've added no saturation, and the camera was set at 0. The D300 seems to over do the reds a little. (like many other cameras)

    Thanks, Chris.

    Thanks, Luke.

    Thanks, buddy.

    By the way, re the colours, I'm starting to think shooting neutral is the way to approach it, and then maybe if needed boosting sats in camera or in PP. This seems to improve the skin tones some. Would be interested to see what you think too.

    these are very well done
    the only thing i'd like to see is more 'in the air' balls and maybe more collisions

    Thanks, Jeff. I shoot soccer using a stool like this;

    3_Legged_Stool.
    I keep it attached to my belt loop, so when I have to move quickly, it moves with me.

    Darren, I've got 7 or 8 games again this Saturday. I plan to try the nuetral setting on a game or two. When I first got my D300, I shot in SRGB, and got some wierd skn tones sometimes. I read about shooting in ARGB, and converting to SRGB. It helped. Have you tried that?

    Thanks, Randy. I appreciate your input.

    Thanks again, Jeff.
