First time shooting gymnastics and I realy liked it. Wanted to do something different so I decided to make this one a high shadow photo with some highlights. Didn't take this especially for the competition. It just fitted so perfectly :)

Thanks for all the great comments.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I'm glad dpc'ers took it with open arms. Not usually pictures like this one that do well in challanges :) I'm pretty happy with it. First time I ever shoot gymnastics... and I kinda like it. I've got some more shots of the same event that I will post here on dpc shortly.

Gary: First to 25 wins ;)

This is nicely done. I enjoy the tonality of the photograph. It does bother me a little that the composition is not symmetrical. I would like to see the figure in the exact center of the composition. My two cents. I rated this photograph well above average.

Wow, gorgous! 10+ if only I could.

I really like this image. I keep coming back to it over and over again (and bumping up the score). I can almost feel the tension in this shot - it's terrific! And you nailed the technical low key aspect too. Great job.
