Beautiful shots.
Nice and sharp, nice whites, blacks are perfect in my view, my Mac usually shows things darker than my PC.
What lens? 300mm 2.8?
Do you have a www?
I am from Northern Ontario.

Thank You, ednotfred, much appreciate your comments. Yes I am shooting with a 300mm 2.8 IS version I. I often struggle to know if the black and whites are close to being correct so thanks for the reinforcement. I don't have a www, do you? I'm from southeast Saskatchewan, but have been driving a short distance to Virden Manitoba to catch the MJHL.

I am quite surprised that there are not more comments. These are some of the best I've seen in a while. Speaking in terms of sharpness. That's hard to get. Of course, your glass, and the 5Diii are top notch equipment.
You can see some of my cheesy work on FB by searching Light Art Image.
I have been shooting hockey as a hobby for a couple years now. Ramped them up a bit when I got the 70-200 2.8 II. I shoot purely for fun. Always looking for something interesting.
After I saw your photos the other day, I started looking at the 300mm 2.8. Pretty rich lens. Maybe someday I will find one at a good deal. Keep up the good work. Would love to see more.

Hey, you've got some really great photos on your FB, you should post your shots here on FM. The 300 2.8 does have a big price tag, especially the new version. I bought mine a few years back and have never regretted it. I've seen some in the buy and sell from time to time around $4000. Thanks again for your comments, its people like you who make it worth while to post!

shots look good, whites are bit hot though. no detail in the sweaters and in the one from you almost lose the goalies stick (#6). Also number your photo's makes it easier to c+c. you have some great action here though, well done. The 5Dmkiii does very well in the rink.

Thanks Rick for commenting. I was doubting myself if I had the whites properly exposed. My last step in pp was using the white eyedropper tool on the ice and then fading by about 50%. I probably could have left that step out as I think the white balance and exposure was fairly good to begin with. My original shots were sized too large and when I resized, I forgot to number the photos. Should all be there now. Thanks again for commenting!

Thanks kwkodiak, the new arena is a good place for pictures. The lighting is quite even and consistent. I've taken a few in the old dungeon with less desirable results.

Poolex,
So maybe the whites are indeed a bit 'hot', but for sure the players, at least to me, are not soft, but rather sharp compared to most I've seen. Are you using any flash?
I get better results pointing my 580EX to the rafters.
Any more to post?

Thanks once again ednotfred, at your request I will post a few more. I will show exif data for the next few. No flash, a reasonably high ISO and a decent shutter speed. I tried using strobes a few years ago when my son played minor hockey, and I was amazed at the image quality. The reason I quite using the strobes is the ice would always look quite gray, and I couldn't find a way to correct it. I'm sure strobes would work well in the larger rinks where the ice already has a white appearance. I'll include one I took with a 40D and one elinchrom 600RX. The next pics I have turned down the exposure a bit in camera raw, have a look and see what you think. Since I've only used the 5D Mark III for one game, I will include some taken with the 5D Mark II.
Thanks again for looking and commenting.
