    I don't think smash shots is the key to good pictures.
    But a good variety of shots from all angles is the way.
    I personally like these kind of shots. All taken with 300mm f2.8.

    Haha, nice selection. Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo I don't feel having the shuttle in frame here has much too add does it? Maybe if practically frozen(?). And of course you are right a smash shot is not necessary for a good pic but for an action shot next to dives is there anything more spectacular?

    Johansen, do you find the 24-70 useful? I find it is rather slow focussing. What's your impression? Do you use it much?

    Thank you demolidor for your nice words.

    Yes, I still think it has. I believe that I will have deleted the photos if the shuttle was not there.

    Shure it is spectacular, but the comercial interest of smash shots are very little. There are almost no demands on smash shots.

    Hi Cheung.
    You are right. It is a little slow in focussing. But if I am close to the court I use it. Far the most photos I take is with my 70-200 F2.8 II.
    What do you use close to court?

    This kind of shots I use it for:

    Too high ISO? Cellphone pics look better these days ...

    Model: NIKON D7000
    ISO: 5000
    Exposure: 1/500 sec
    Aperture: 1.8
    Focal Length: 50mm
    Flash Used: No
    Latitude: n/a
    Longitude: n/a


    Or shitty post-processing, too much compression: 1024732 pixels – 86KB?

    Another one (same settings):

    demolidor,
    my only tip in doing post processing is try not to resize the original picture (if possible, don't do it at all, unless one doesn't really care abt the quality of the final photo), esp. if it was taken in RAW format. Just crop & focus on the area you want to keep/show.

    Obviously this is not my work I was just amazed a D7000 could produce this cellphone quality since that might be the camera I'm going for ...

    Compression artificating with a touch of softness filter to make it presentable? Colours and exposure don't look. Look like they had the cellphone postprocessing treatment and/or taken with a 50 cent lens...
    You can just go the website on the pics and choose the gallery of the currently held English National Championships

    Having a hard time choosing the worst of the bunch Should probably move to the D7000 thread by now .



    Interestingly it's from the same person/persons as posted before in the AE2010 picture thread only then it was a D80 and look better at roughly the same dimension and filesize.

    Mainly using primes: 50/1.4 or 35/1.4. Not very satisfactory.

    Demolidor, I think the poor quality is due to lack of light. Needed to open up the aperture to 1.8 so the quality will be so so. Depth of field will be very small so OOF shot is more likely.

    We don't know how far away the photographer was. I would guess quite far away and the image has had to be cropped quite a lot again affecting quality.

    It would be interesting to compare the D70 pics to those.

    But really, this thread is more concerned about what goes into the picture rather than the equipment.
