Images are noisy, because of poor lighting and being underexposed. I'll have to lower my SS next time to expose better and risk the blur. C&C welcome.

They are not that bad. They could be much worse in fact. 1/500 would work for this stuff and for the band stuff, you should be able to drop to a lower ISO and expose at EV0 (don't underexpose). If you're on a monopod or you have the IS version of the 300mm, that should take care rest of blur and you face a better risk vs. reward.

I agree with Caleb, these are not that bad - have you considered running the images through Noise Ninja? I found it to be quite good at reducing the noise while not reducing the sharpness of the image, assuming you've exposed correctly.

Thanks for the comments.

Caleb, I have a non-IS version of the 300mm 2.8, but I use a monopod and camera shake has not been a problem. The issue is motion blur dropping below 1/500. At ISO 6400 SS 1/500 F2.8 these were underexposed and have been brought up in post.

Chris, I use LR3 for noise reduction and these were underexposed. Unfortunately this is my home field and I will have 3 more games on it.

I know underexposing made the noise worse, but the choice was underexpose and deal with the noise or lower the SS and have motion blur. Setting the ISO at H (12800) the noise looked bad on the camera display so I moved to ISO 6400. I have to find the balance that works.

Try running them through Noise Ninja.

This guy clearly knows what he is talking about.

I remember the days when ISO 1600+ was hardly an option and if there was that option it was ISO 3200 as a hard ceiling. I used to dream of ISO 3200+. Seems these days I shoot to my equipment and don't venture out at night. (reverse vampire?)

I'm not super familiar with LR noise reduction, but I have used a couple of different plugins for Photoshop. From a work flow side I would reccomend doing a bit less NR on web images if you are working with those (such as LR only) and if you are printing up pictures for clients go ahead and run the original fine (with no NR) through a dedicated plugin such as Noise Ninja or Noiseware Pro, etc. My experience has always been positive with NWP, but other users (as you can see here) swear by Noise Ninja.
