First time shooting basketball in years, but this was as low-pressure as it gets. I have a lot to learn about the a99ii still, but overall I'm pleased considering my rust.

A couple of suggestions for post processing. If you use Photoshop, on the first shot, use the level tool, select the middle eyedropper, and select something dark, like the closest boy's hair or his shorts. This will correct the WB a bit, it will take some trial and error. Then take the level slider and run it to the left halfway. This should change the shot to be a bit more real life, I believe. The first is quite sharp from what I can see. :)

Here is that last shot with some post processing, to show how it can pop with a bit of careful editing. :)

Thank you so much, TS. I will play with these files some more before I donate them to the AAU outfit I shot them for.

These are jpeg out of camera, with an action that removes noise with Noiseware, some USM to add contrast, then USM for sharpening, and a bit of saturation.
