Very nice. Looks like he had fun! Pics are a bit dark to my eyes.

Nice, a little underexposed but nice. I'd have gone with a higher ISO and kept the shutter speed. I shoot a lot of indoor sports and they are difficult without extra lighting.

Re: Judo throws with X-T1 & 56mm

Did you apply any noise reduction to those ? Nik software might help here. Also, you probably know that, but the focus doesn't seem to be in the right place to me. In fact, apart from the first pic, the rest look out of focus. But if you decrease aperture, you now have to introduce even more noise! What a dilemma. I liked the first one.

Nice photos, but they are pretty under-exposed. I think adding +.07 EV would've been just right.

Thanks. Yes, they are dark, but somehow I like to make my photos look darker and bright on the subject. BTW, none of these kids are my son. My son took the test earlier and I didn't have a good spot to shoot his throws.

Thanks. No flash allowed. My son's Sensei is very nice. I'll ask him next time if I can use reflector.

I don't have Nik software. But, I agree with you that I like the first one too.

I don't think that will help. I'd just go with the higher ISO.

Thanks for sharing these images.  I'm curious as to what focus mode you were using and what part of the scene were you were focusing on.

Love it. These don't need any noise reduction they look great like this. Maybe a little brighter I hope you don't mind but this is one click on a curve adjustment layer (the Auto button).

Thanks. Image #1 & #7 were in S/S/Spot metering. #2-#6 were in S/CH/Spot metering.

Good start, but as everyone else puts it. A bit underexposed. Maybe the camera was fooled by all the white in the scene. Some exposure comp would have done the trick.

How do you like the focus speed of the 56mm. I find it a little jumpy and not quite as good as my previous Nikon lenses. But they are very sharp right from 1.2.

Thanks. I agreed the white uniforms might confuse it. I'll try Multiple metering next time.

X-T1 with 23mm & 56mm are my first camera system, so I can't compare with others. But, I like the 56mm more than 23mm and I use it 85% in my shots. In dim condition, 56mm is not quite good as 23mm, but it's not a deal breaker for me. As long as it focuses and give me good images are what I'm after.

Re: Judo throws with X-T1 & 56mm

Were you shooting in Velvia mode? The colors, to put it mildly, look strange.

Shot in Std and used Velvia in PP.
