    Most were taken with my D700 and new 85 1.8. I wanted to see how it performed for basketball.

    9,10 were with my 80-200

    Not my best set :o I was up till 4am and I'm still hungover :wtc:

    timing and composition needs a lot of work

    #4 is the best of this lot

    consider reframing this shot using the crop tool

    :rofl:

    thanks a lot :h5:

    yes me too! the bokeh in that one is :yum:

    it's not exactly easy to compose an image as these guys are running all over the place. and I did actually do a little experimenting with non-centered images today, but wasn't really a big fan of any of them.

    feel free to give any pointers about composing fast moving subjects, otherwise I just try to anticipate and capture the action...

    Actually it's pretty bright in the thriller dome as far as indoor sports arenas are concerned. They retrofitted the lights 2 years ago and really brightened it up... close to 2 stops.
