pardon my obsessiveness for a minute. non-photo geeks might want to tune out.
on the left is the original in-camera auto white balance. in the middle it's set in lightroom off the blacks in the jersey. on the right it's set off the whites in the jersey. anyone care to offer an opinion of which they prefer?

Thanks to all who played along with the Baker's Dozen project... The results are up on flickr now. Edits are still preliminary and some of the post processing has gone a bit too far, so expect to see some changes.
The results aren't quite what i'd expected -- thematically or visually -- but i'm still really happy with them...
I'd been seeing the project in my head in black & white, but once i started shooting i knew it was going to end up in color.
The lighting needs a little work. Most of it was complete dumb luck combined with nikon's CLS mad science. basic formula: -2 stops EV comp + ( +1 stop flash comp + ( 1.7 stops A-channel [main, normally camera right] or 1-stop B-channel [fill/rim, camera left] ). the later night shots got some CTO gels...
There was more than a little lightroom work on them to dial up the mood.
