I was able to shoot a tournament this week, which included the #1 ranked AAAAAA girls basketball team in Georgia (we also have the #1 ranked boys BB team and the #1 ranked football team). I had posted them on my web site and had gotten some feedback that they are too dark and that they lack punch. They seem ok from an exposure perspective on my calibrated monitor at home and at a larger size than is visible on my web site. What do you think and what could I do to improve them?

All were shot with a D800 and Nikon 70-200 in manual mode, except for white balance, at 1/500, f 2.8 and ISO 6400.

#22 is Diamond DeShields, who I have posted about here before. She continues with her involvement on the under 18 Olympic teams, etc. and is one of the #1 candidates on the country. #32 is Shayla Cooper, who is the other Gwinnett County Super Six Players on the team. Gwinnett County is a very competitive county with several of our programs having gotten SI attention as nationally ranked programs.
