Glamorous Gams

1/160s @ f/5.0, ISO 10000, Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 @ 200mm. (C-A)
And now for something completely different! Attended a Women's Flat track Roller Derby event for fun...and to test out the low light capabilities of my camera (no flash). Not an ISO I would use everyday, but if I were a professional sports photographer, I would probably not hesitate to use it.
Desktop hard disk crashed again. Working on laptop (ugh!!) until new one arrives and everything gets restored.

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/160 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 10000, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 200.00 mm, Model: NIKON D4

This is so cool, Rona! I love the light and color, and the composition is great - zooming in on the kneepads and skates. I bet you had fun! Good luck with the new hard drive. #1473393
