Ive had problems with Skin tone being green in this gym. I set WB when I started but in a gym, that means nothing.

Looks like you've got some big time light cycling. Compare the color of the white uniform with the white backboard on the top of the image. Skin tones are green. This will be impossible to fix completely. Fix the skin tones as best you can but this will not be totally satisfactory.

Boy, you could be working in possibly the WORST HS gym in the US!!!

Also, notice the serious CA going on with #40's uniform right side? Backboard looks ok, refs shoes appear black, but there are some really unfortunate color casting going on in the gym.

Other than the poor lighting you're dealing with, the shot is good!

Looks like a fair amount of NR too, as it's kind of soft. Have you tried playing around with the WB dropper in LR3?

I noticed the CA, too; that's the 85 1.8 at work. Try shooting raw to get more to work with.

I shoot a WB card at 1/60. I got that advice here on the boards and it's worked for me.

Not much you can really do in gyms like like this without bringing your own lighting or getting faster glass (i.e. f2.8).

Using strobes you can control your white balance better by either getting most of your light from the strobes and setting your WB from that or by using gels to match the ambient.

Here's a thread I started a while ago on how I set up lighting in a gym.

2.8 would be slower. The op was shooting with a 1.8

I do agree strobes are probably the only thing that will help much.

yes, I used the backboard and even the grey box on the wall that you wind up the backboard with. Still sucked.

Correct 1.8 and also, how do you all know what I use? Do you put my picture in your editing software to get the EXIF ?

What is CA?

That "CA" people are referring to is chromium aberration (sp and term?) and it's the purple fringing you see at the right side of the white jersey player.
