To meet DavidEB and watch his son play. Light in this rink was pretty good!

I could only stay for the first period, because I had to rush to the other end of town to shoot my Son's team at an AHL game...

The kids got to play on the Norfolk Admirals' home ice between the 1st and 2nd periods.

The Admirals won the game 4-3 after a scoreless overtime. It was won in the shootout.

Very nice pics. The colors on the players are vivid and adds lots of eye appeal to the images. I found it especially interesting to see the difference in lighting between the first two arenas in comparison to the obviously brighter AHL rink. Nice work.

Thanks!

Yes, there was a huge difference in light quality at the AHL rink (Norfolk Scope). I was able to shoot at ISO400 and still get a shutter above 1/500. I brought my 85 1.8 to that rink because of the "lens length" rules (3", I think), but I didn't shoot at 1.8. Most of the shots were 2.8 or smaller. Even from the nose bleed seats the shots weren't too bad with the 85. I would have loved to sneak my 70-200 in though. I'll be posting some of the game shots later.

Dan, good meeting you and I like your pics. #3 (second set) is my boy - you caught his great defensive play -- sidelined their biggest/fastest skater in a breakout -- he was proud of that one. nice work.

bet the kids love the shootout shot.

Good to meet you as well! You son is very good. I picked him out (name on jersey) and tried to get a few of him. I like that shot, too bad it's a little OOF...

BTW, who won? When I left at the 1st period, it was score-less. The goalie for the VB team was in my son's league last year. She has improved a lot!

VB won that one, by 1 goal, very close game. We won the other VB game on sunday (6AM) and then drew the final game in the series. Good tournament.
