    Besides 3, they're pretty meh in terms of hockey.
    Need more peak action/faces.
    Would have gone for the faces in 6 instead.

    I like the grain, I think it adds to the image

    i see what you mean, I have more action shots but I wanted to show something abit different

    for sure faces in 6 probably would have been better

    Thanks Ben!
    This was kind of a quick shot that I had only a moment to capture, looking back at it now, i'm sorta thinking that I should have focused on the closer sticks and thrown the further sticks out of focus.

    When I grabbed this shot I had my focus point to center point so thats where the focus is. Do you think it would have been better to focus on the closer sticks?

    The action shots don't look too bad. You can actually see the detail of the ice VS a puck just drifting on a plane of whiteness.

    There are a coupla really cute chicks from MN on Team USA.

    What the heck I thought I already replied to this thread :rofl:

    Anyway, to reiterate :)hsugh:):
    1: Great, motion blur from the players doesn't detract from anything, and there are some good fan faces in there

    2: It's a great moment but it's cropped wayyyyy too wide. There's no reason to have all that space at the left, cut her stick off. If it's wide because the file's not all that clean.. then it is what it is, but if you can afford to get tighter, do it

    3: Save-on-Foods would love it if their flag was in plain sight, great shot anyway.

    4: Good moment, focus is on the wrong girl, but that's ok. Crop it a bit tighter, girl on the right can be cut off partway

    5: No point having the players in this, goalie only. It's a great shot having her concentrating intensely on the puck, just gotta be cropped tighter

    6: Ok i guess :)

    7: cropped WAYYYY tighter. No one wants to see empty seats

    8: Awesome flare, really :cool:
