    I ended up going at 135mm a couple nights ago...made 5 shots wide. Unfortunately I was still fighting the ramp lights in the back ground so I took half the stitch and mirrored it. Can't tell except for the background...which I'm gonna try and mask out and maybe replace. This is proving to be difficult because I'm using GIMP right now and I can't find the tools I'm used to in Photoshop.

    I used Hugin to merge it. Did a pretty decent job once I figured it out.

    I officially hate gimp. It just ruined two hours of work on this thing when the levels plugin crashed in the middle of it rendering preview and left me with a half rendered line across the middle of my photo. Thank god I save progress every once in awhile because I couldn't undo the action... was stupid. So this preview is nowhere near done, I still have to play with the colors a little more and bring out the contrast. I will also crop a little tighter. If you look you can still see the line where I mirrored it. This is the biggest piece of progress that I lost when GIMP screwed up. So I have to redo it, just not tonight, also have to desat the orange highlights from the mercury lights. You get the idea though. I'm gonna keep the mirrored background I think. Its kinda cool, and it will be subtle since I'm keeping it plenty dark. This will be cropped and printed for a 36 x 10 frame.

    How did you end up lighting it? Looks a bit like the AC is in front of a hanger (which is a nice, soft light box look).

    I think his exposure is OK at best. No faces are well exposed. He clearly knows nothing of the sport and his pics demonstrate that.

    The hole not cropping because I get it right in camera pissed me off. He obviously doesn't understand that you shoot tight, crop tighter. And plus he was way to static, whenever I shoot soccer games I move between sides of the goal to get the action head on.

    The static part was because he was making a video about stuff he doesn't know about :D
