Nice action! Looks like you have good access at the facility. How far off the endline are you for 1 and 2? Still like the look of these.

Thanks Ben! The home games for both teams were moved to Bender Arena at American University due to the magnitude of the rivalry between the two teams. This was the 2nd meeting between the two this year and Gonzaga's home game. Gonzaga trailed at the half and as much as 6 points towards the end of the 3rd quarter. Gonzaga finally got it going late in the 3rd and won the 4th. I was about 3 off the baseline and about 4 feet left of the goal support. The first 2 shots came in the first half and I was the only one on the my side of the goal while all of the other photogs (~4) were on the other side... Of course in the second half I move to the right side of the goal and miss the face on the last jamm (same guy as first 2 pics) which was a nice back door alley-oop.. No matter where you sit, it seems the refs always find a way to block some good shots..haha...

What in the world did you do to the colors in these photos? Was it your intention to do that?

Really interesting shots and an unusual treatment. I particularly like the distortion introduced by the 24mm in the last shot. There is an almost old newspaper feel to your treatment.

Also interesting is the difference in rules between state associations. Even touching (much less hanging from) the rim here is an automatic technical and any points scored disallowed. They seem to have bent over backwards to stop what they label as "show boating."

Hey Robert - I go in cycles, once I get a look I like I tend to go with it awhile until another look gets my attention. I am trying to get that "vintage" look to the images. I used to almost always shoot all my sports tight and only recently have started to add a more loose and wide angle assortment to my shoots which I am starting to really enjoy - it adds more perspective to the shot just so long as there is enough interesting stuff going on around the main subject of the shots... I'm not really versed on the rules regarding hanging on the rim, etc. but obviously its not a big issue here or its only as long as they appear to be protecting themselves from injury...

These are absolutely fantastic! Processing is awesome! Nice clarity and structure to the pics making the details pop just a little more(#2 being my favorite).
Great stuff.

Rob - all done in LR4. I have a set of action presets from SLR Lounge - I believe these are started with the "Aged Photo" preset and then I just tweak shadows/highlights/clarity until I get it the way I want...
