40D: Raps vs. Celts, 200/2.8 L II, expodisc, faithful (pics)

Took the 40D to the ballgame last week. After seeing so many superb sports pictures here from Bryan and some of the challenges, I thought I'll get the WB 'right' off the bat. So I customized WB by pointing the Expodisc up to the lights.

My seat is not that great with the 200/2.8 L II. In some of the shots in the basket closer to me I think a shorter focal length lens would better capture the players, the ball and the basket. Overall I was pretty happy with the results. The lens was pretty sharp and also I did not bother reducing noise shooting mostly at ISO 1250.

Used the 6.5fps bursts, AI Servo using the centre AF only, jpeg (Faithful) and added a bit of FM Velvia Vision just to bring up the vibrancy.

Anyway, here are the pics:

Cheers,

José
