Color balance seems to be off a bit, especially in the fleshtones. Perhaps a cyan adjustment would make it look more natural?

Its always difficult to get good shots of these events. I tend to get there early and look for somewhere with a nice plain background, something which will not distract from the main activities.

In this you can see the background is a real competitor for the viewers eye. The colours clash (purple and green/orange), the lamp is another difficulty, but the bright face (left) and head (right) are the main problems. These need to come out or better still not included in the first place.

The main subject is nice and sharp, colourful and you caughtthe action just right. The next step is to think a little more about positioning yourself and anticipating the shot.

Great shot! Love the determined look on her face. Seems a little too much saturation tho I might be wrong...8
