Love the action and spot on focus! I'm curious, what would it look like if you slowed the shutter just enough to give a sense of motion?

Thank you for sharing and Happy Holidays! S-

Love love love the second shot! You have your new rig humming. ;)
Oh, as mentioned above, it is fun to play with the shutter speed, slow it down a bit and add a little blur to show the speed of the puck flying by the goalie.

well I'm glad everyone likes my shots. I thought about slowing the shutter down but several people I work with thought it would be better if I froze the action. next time I'll try a slower shutter. hockey is a fast moving game and I didn't want to miss a good shot because i was messing with the camera settings.

I think the ice spray in the first shot is a good argument for keeping the shutter speed high. Any slower and it would just be a fuzzy white blur.
