Had a bike ride and saw a lady wakeboarding. She did not do any crazy tricks but a few new sports images to the thread. Shot with Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8

The settings are not the secret. Shutter speed - about 1/1600 s (in very rough conditions - up to 1/2500 s or 1/3200 s), diaphragm is between 1:9.0 and 1:13.0 by the my old Bigma, by the new one (I have bought an one new this May) the diaphragm is 1:7.1 or 1:8 because the new Bigma has more contrast and sharpness even widely open.
Grokh, at the sandy beach at Surfers Paradise, Queensland, I've taken shots exposed for a 15.6 LV on a bright sunny day. (Table 2 at Exposure value - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia says 16 LV for full sunshine and light-coloured sand, but there's a light transmission loss in lenses, so the f-stop value, reported in the Exif data, is not exactly the same as the t-stop). That's at Lat. 28S. St. Petersburg is 60N, so I'm not sure if you would reach 15.5 LV on a bright day on water. (There is a 75% greater Air Mass that light has to pass through for noonday light at Lat. 60 vs Lat. 29. See http://pveducation.org/pvcdrom/properties-of-sunlight/air-mass.)

1/1600s, f/9, ISO400 is a suitable setting for capturing and rendering 15 LV, or 15.5 LV at ISO280. What ISO range are you using?

Most of the pictures which I have shoot are from Mediterranean or Adriatic. Here I usually use ISO 640-800. In SPb or Moscow I use ISO up to 1250 or higher some times. This weekend for example here in Moscow was very rainy, I shoot the Moscow Cup on the ISO up to 5000...
But normally - by bright summer sun - here in SP or Moscow on the water we have EV ~ 14-14.5.

Third shot is excellent for the capture of the intense expressions on the players.

Me and my K-5 & Tamron 70-200 f2.8 again. Last year it was U17 football, but the boys - or should I say men - grow older, and now they're already a U19 team.
It's the Finnish U19 championship series which we lead after 12 rounds together with a team from a neighbouring town.


This was shot through the net which almost completely disappears due to the f2.8 aperture.


Missed the focus but this shows that the guys play pretty hard.


The final score 2-0 in the making. A volley shot into the upper left corner from a narrow angle.


The second half was mostly shot against the sun.

I'm less and less happy with the AF of the camera. It's going to be interesting to see if there will be better offerings from Pentax in the near future - and if I'm able to pile up some dough for an upgrade. Or will I do something radical... we'll see.
