The magic of resizing down to 1600 on the long end!

Here is a larger view, but again not 100%, you can then gauge any voodoo from larger samples. :)

Also, I cannot stress the need for prioritizing shutter speed more than ISO... As you can see in that image, there is a sweat drop in the lower left that still shows movement, so 1/2000th for these guys still aren't enough. The younger the players, the lower you might be able to go with shutter, but always experiment. I suspect you will find that higher ISO images (if processed well) with faster shutter will yield better results overall than lower ISO with slower shutter.

Nah, I still think there is some voodoo involved!  :p:lol:

Just phenomenal work, I can only hope by the time I am 150 years old I can get that good...

Hi, Guys!

First, i'd like to thank all of you, and especially TeamSpeed for the sharing knowledge with beginners like me. Yes, there's a lot of info about shooting sports on the net, but the amount of little details shared here, is phenomenal! I'm new to photography and this is my 6th attempt of shooting basketball and sports in general. Without advice from this forum, i would not be able to develop my skills so fast. Mastering a craft takes looooong time, and i'm just at the beginning of the road, but with the advice from professionals like you, guys, my first steps was way easier. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
With greetings from Latvia, EU. :)

P.S. The horizon in the second picture is sloped intentionally. :P

Nice gritty look!

I think the 2nd one would look just a tiny bit better perhaps with a 2 degree clockwise rotation. I also like the rafters look if you bring up the shadows a bit, as a different feel.
