He (captain of the team) wound up on the floor this time!
It was during the first of four games that day, in the FamJuice City (play-by-play) Classic tournament.
Had to deal with bad and broken lighting, and huge yellow color casts.
F2.8, ISO:3200, 1/800s, Canon 24-70mm LF2.8 (not the new one).

I like their expressions the best! Not often you can capture three subjects in a perfectly controlled flail. Great work with your lighting, Michelle.
