Xti Guy, my editing to most of my sports stuff is very minimal. Its really dependent on the situation and sports. When I'm shooting fieldhockey at 12 or something the lighting can be a bit harsh. I'll usually meter off the whites (making sure they arent blown out) and then relying on shadow/highlight and levels adjustments to correct for the shadows. With volleyball and basketball, however, I am very confident with my settings. My particular gym seems to perform best at ISO 1600, f/2.8 at 1/500. With these settings very minimal editing is needed or even possible with the amount of noise evident in the pictures. At the very most, I correct the white balance using curves eye droppers, slight contrast adjustment map, crop tight, sharpen, resize, sharpen again, apply watermark, and thne save. Usually takes me around 5 minutes a picture because my computer is a lil pokey.
Here's an original straight out of the camera.
