Where to start?
- Canon EOS 5D Mark II; 70-200mm f2.8L zoom with a 1.4x extender for an effective focal length range of 98-280mm; this shot at 98mm
- ISO 6400, with no (that's as in "none") digital noise reduction after RAW conversion
- I screwed up and (because I kept wiping the camera off with a towel from my trunk during one of Puget Sound's famous "drowning mists") actually shot this at 320th second, f5.6, rather than the 250th of a second I had really intended
- So during RAW conversion this received an exposure compensation of +2.0
- Manually set White Balance at 3300K in the camera, and during RAW conversion; noise reduction "high" during RAW conversion; sharpness "3" as-shot during RAW conversion
- (You can see how the White Balance of 3300K really works pretty well because you can discern the different hues between the stripes on the jersey, which are a very pale cream, and the numbers, which as is the ball, are white)
- Adjusted Levels down to 240 on the high end during post-processing
Fortunately the subject was right in front of me, and the light tower was just back off behind my right shoulder.
