Yup I tried, but boy is it hard.
So no flash, just a steady hand and luck (referencing about the player in front of my main subject). Reminder photography in an arena is very dark, and the game is very fast. So I,m really satisfied with the result, but I need your helpful opinion.
ISO 1600
exp 1/40
f/5,6

Nice try, it would have been nice to open the aperture a little more to isolate whichever player you were focussed on a little more

Well if your looking for an esthetically pleasing photo - your half way there. I find that the other people in the photo are distracting. Try isolating your subject more.

indeed I tried to isolate the focus point... but failed.
Having multiple mouvements from each different player was very distracting.

Thank you for the opinion, it confirms what I thought... but I'm still pleased of the result knowing how hard it was.

:D

the bokeh is very busy...you really need F/2.8 (on a fast focusing lens) for a great panning shot. still,congrats ! this should be the result that one could obtain with a F/5.6 & in low light arena.

Well, i'm not quite experienced, so take my opinion with reserve, but i quite like it. A hockey puck , no guy in front and a goalpost maybe, and it would be great!

I agree, but it's not easy, I tried again, but my lens is too slow.

Plenty of info above, I feel it would be of greater interest if you captured a frontal shot with some face, it may bring the shot alive 8) .


Cheers.

Will try next time for sure... but hockey season is over. :?
I'm looking forward to some more attempts and new ones.
Got a project in the works presently ... hope it's something new
in the photo world.

Thanks to all for the help and comments, it's very appreciated.
Best regards from Canada where i live we still have a meter of snow.
