NAGBBMtLebo-15 by PVC 2012, on Flickr

Camera              Canon EOS-1D X
Exposure              0.001 sec (1/1000)
Aperture              f/2.0
Focal Length      135 mm (135/2L)
ISO Speed      3200

Awesome indoor sports combo :), although this lens consistently has an issue with yellow casting under flourescent lights.  To solve, I've found that after my routine LR post-processing, I find I can remove the cast/return the skin tones by also editing in PS with the Cooling filter (LBB) layer at 15%. I've tried shooting in L JPG mode with various custom white balances, but always need to apply this filter to achieve acceptable skin tones. 
Any other tricks ??

thanks for posting your settings...and nice shot.   by the way, how does the 135 compare w/ the 70-200 in AF speed and accuracy?

I shoot basketball (gosh these no pun intendids are classic) with the 70-200 f/2.8L II IS, the 24-70L II, and the 135L.  In sufficient light situations, the 70-200 is the clear winner with flexibility and AF speed and accuracy.  The 135L AF's on the 1DX just as quickly, however, it's less flexible.  In low light however, I always go with the 135L.  Last week I had a game where the light was so bad I was at 1/500s, f/2, ISO 5000.  It would have been really bad had I only been shooting at f/2.8.  I think as far as AF speed and accuracy, the 70-200 is slightly better, but if you plan ahead, you can nail a lot of shots with the 135L.

I really like the picture. She could not possibly have missed this one. She looks so focused and you have got it at the exact moment. Wonderful capture.

A question: What PP did you do in LR?

WOW! Great shot!

OK, so I plagiarized...

A question: What PP did you do in LR?

I shoot RAW, sRGB, 'neutral' with NR/highlight tone off, and custom WB (K) specific to each gym (usually ~3200), and then import with "MY" basic LR RAW conversion settings...
Contrast +5
Clarity +15
Vibrance +35
Saturation +5
Sharpening +75, radius 1, detail 25
NR 25
with the Lens specific profile and the camera profile  set to "neutral"

Then, based on ISO / histogram / DR of shot, I tweek and adjust WB, exposure / highlights / shadows / NR as needed;

Finally, with this lens (for some reason),  I also have to further tweek the WB, but I must do this by editing in PS, using just the preset camera filter, {cooling (LBB)} with 15% opacity to offset a persistent yellow cast I usually encounter when shooting under these underlit gym fluorescent lighting. 
The only other lens that casts this similar yellow haze is my 85 1.2L.  And it happens on all my bodies 7d, 5d3, 1DIV and 1D-X.
My zooms, 70-200 2.8 II and 24-70 2.8 II, do not have this same issue >:(  on any of my bodies, so I really think it is unique to these lenses. 
Interestingly, the 85 has a slightly different hue so I'm convinced it is really these lenses (under these conditions).  I'll try to post a before / after LR screen shot to demonstrate what i mean when I get back home tonite.

Thanks, a before and after would help. I don't use sharpening. That is set at the default value. I use more clarity. Typically the value is 50. Gotta run to work soon. I will post more details in the evening when I get back.

Very nice capture vkiran! I had just seen the new movie "Life of Pi" several days before I saw your post...great special effects.

Was the tiger in an enclosure or did you use a long telephoto lens to keep safe? He looks awfully close ;)

Screen Shot 2012-12-11 at 6.22.34 AM by PVC 2012, on Flickr

Here is the Before (bottom) and After (top) SCREENSHOT demonstrating the 'Yellow" cast from the 135L using the 1D-X, though as noted, this occurs on every body under indoor gym fluorescent lights -probably reflecting off the wooden varnished floors.  The Before does have my basic Raw adjustments, as those are applied during import, but I've only found the 1 workaround to remove this (PS camera cooling filter), but if others have ideas - please share. 
I'll have to go back and find the OOC backup to be sure this is not a LR specific raw conversion phenomenon. I apologize the resolution is suboptimal for pixel-peeping but hope you see what I see.....

The yellow cast is also demonstrated with my 70-200 f/2.8L II IS.  Unfortunately, due to my quick turnaround times demanded, I cannot go into photoshop and apply the filter.  The best I can do is lower the color temp quickly and do my best.  This is why I dislike badly lit gyms, such as division 2 college and high school :).
