Apparently Kyle Orton missed the memo regarding Breast Cancer Awareness day.
Im not sure Ill have to check my other shots. He might have had pink shoes on.

How do you do it? I would kill for pictures like these.
I use shutter priority and aperture priority mode a lot when Im shooting stuff like this that have a wide dynamic of light (light to dark). For sports I prefer to use shutter priority so I know Im not going to be getting to be getting blurry images because the shutter dropped too low.
I started with a shutter speed of 1/2000 and ISO 200 because that is the baseline I try to get for sports. If its under exposed I will drop my shutter speed down but normally not lower than 1/1250. If its over exposed Ill increase the shutter speed. If I have to drop my shutter speed to 1/1250 and the photos are still underexposed Ill start increasing my ISO to keep my exposures right.
The other thing that I do is set the exposure compensation to -1/3 of a stop. I find doing this keeps the whites from blowing out most of the time.

Very nice. You even managed to grab a shot of Denver's only highlight; very impressive.
Thanks Tom Zbikowski stepped right in front of me or I would have had a perfect shot of him diving with the ball going into his hands. If you look on the right hand edge of the photo you can see a sliver of photographer. He was the only one in that corner at that time.

Great images of a really crappy game for Denver. I stopped watching somewhere in the third quarter.
The bokeh in #5 is really wierd and cool. did you mess with it or is that just the way it was?
#3 is really a killer shot! The exposure is so right on! Well done all the way around.
Thanks. The bokeh is straight out of camera on all of these.
