i like your perspectives, color and action. overall i think your pictures are very good, however, in pictures: #1, 3, 4 & 5 i think the ice is too "hot." by way of comparison i am looking @ dunzie's #2 picture. this ice looks more natural.

anyway, like many of the other postings here, thanks for shooting and sharing hockey. the nhl strike is killing me too.

Thanks for the honest opinion. I don't disagree with you, I'm trying to find the balance exposing for the player and the ice.

Personally I care more about the player's faces being well exposed than the ice but I also agree that it shouldn't be completely blown out either.

Just a few more from recent games, not worth starting a new thread.

capitalK,
Nice shots. I enjoy hockey as well, always looking for that cool capture.
I was shooting there last weekend. First time for me through the glass (hard to find a clean spot sometimes esp. in the corners.)
I'm using a 60D w 70-200 2.8 ISII. Still learning. Do it for fun for now.

Yes it is very hard to find clean glass, especially when there are a few games in a row or after they host a tourney there. I like to move around which sometimes helps and sometimes you find a worse spot.

The team photographer has the best spot, right between the benches with no glass.

Also from last night: the mascot and player Michael Schumacher standing for the national anthem.

This thread has probably run its course, but I just have a few more.

Just putting a few more up because there's no home games for a little while.

Those are some great images - colours are out of this world.

Thanks. I wish I was on the other side and could have gotten the fist-on-face PLUS the airborne face shield. Maybe next time.
