Bath Rugby vs. Gloucester Rugby - 4/1/2008.

Covered this ding dong of a game tonight. A real war of attrition. Middle of the park rugby if you will with two teams who play pack rugby scrapping it out, with Bath nailing it 10-5 in the end. Good atmosphere.

Nice lighting as SKY were in situ and they brought their own floodlights as they often do. As such, I under exposed by 2/3rds of a stop to get the shutter about right and set up a custom white balance at 6500 Kelvins though the onboard Flash WB setting was not far off. All shot at ISO 2000 over above, max 3200.

Overall, the Mark III performed like a dream tonight. Maybe it is starting to sing at last. But then, like Han Solo, I pilot my machine quite well but still room for improvement. A little bit of 'sportrait' at the end.

Enjoy, comments welcome.

Watched the game and I think you've done a great job. The 2nd shot is fantastic, it really captured the intensity of the game, not a single player looking anywhere other than the centre of the ball. :)

Very well chosen shots here. Capture the action and atmosphere well. Superb timing and composition. Quite grainy which adds to the effect. Lovely colour throughout. All of them look great. :thumbsup:

HI ya

Another great set Pete.


#2 very good reminds me of a sky advert.:thumbsup:


Also #11 you have caught him spot on.:thumbsup:

Total newbie, just want to ask you a question on this. Is there a reason why you set up your own WB and how did you come to this figure?



Cheers Holo:smashin::smashin:

I watched this game as well and was feeling for the snappers there. Great shot of Barkley, Mears and Patterson in the first - how clean does he look and what a great try he scored.
