Wordski, yes, I understood that the exposure is for the ice.Thanks, though, for the clarification. My lens is a 2.8, so unless I lower the shutter speed, thereby comprising any action shots, that's the best I can do. Or at least it seems to be. The rink is a small local one that was built about forty years ago with a bit of refurishment in the last ten. Absolutely, the histogram would be more left than right.
Pizdets, not sure about your camera, but I can't add any stops in manual mode. Yes, I also add about .2 in post.
The thing is, I think I might just stop trying to make things whiter than white. If you look at the ice, the playing areas, the corners etc, they are not bright white. Part of the appeal of Pixdets last two shots, to me, is that the ice looks "real". There's lot of definition and the colours and reflections can still be seen.
