after several years i still struggle with images/post processing of the local semi-pro team Prowlers of the Federal Hockey League...

i used to think the light was insufficient but i now lean to poor quality of "just enough" light...

if i correct for nearly blown out ice, everything gets very flat and a touch under exposed...

blow out the ice and get the exposure right on the players all day, every day. others may differ but that's my advice.

ive done that in the past and had editors harangue me for blown out ice...

it doesnt help (in MY mind) that the lines and paint seem to be really deep in the ice and dont show well...

thanks for the input...

Keeping the ice from blowing out while maintaning good colors is the holy grail of hockey photography, I think. It's a hassle every time I go to a new rink, because the light is different no matter how many rinks I've shot in. It's very rare when I can shoot SOOC and get decent images. I almost always have to do a levels adjustment in Photoshop to give the image some bite, providing I've exposed Properly for the ice. For this image I bumped exposure about 1/3 stop and tweaked the levels.
