Gymnastics Competition




I attended a gymnastics meet this weekend, and it was SO cool! There was something going on everywhere I looked! This adorable little gymnast is my niece Bailey, and she did a GREAT job! She received a first place medal in her division in the balance beam event. Anyway, I used my 85mm for these, shot in Aperture priority, most of the shots that I took were at 1.8 or 2.0, but I had to bump my ISO all the way up to 1600. I had LOTS of noise, so I ran them through noiseware. CC always appreciated - thanks for looking!
Oh, by the way, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, there's a big leprechaun in the background of the first and third one! This is the guy that owned the gym where the meet was held, and since it was St. Patrick's Day theme, he dressed in costume! Pretty funny!
