Challenge: Free Study 2012-01 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM

Took pictures at my first ever gymnastics meet for our schools newspaper. This was on the balance beam.
These are pretty much the only pictures I took all month, so that is what I am submitting. I don't expect it to score high at all since it has technical problems and could be a lot sharper

I am in a total photography rut right now. I haven't picked up my camera in ages to do any fun shooting. If it wasn't for the photography job, I wouldn't touch it at all.

You're welcome. All I had was 50mm f/1.4 too. No such thing as money for UWA 10-20mm's in my heyday.
All the same it's great work and I hope the paper published it? If they didn't submit it to your local rag too!

Thanks Harvey, but it was actually my 50mm 1.4. I accidentally set it to the wrong lens. I also did a LOT of blurring and burning of the background in photoshop, so its a lot less impressive then you think. But I am glad you liked the image :-)

OMW! That is simply wonderful work for a 400D and a f/4-5.6 lens. Go girl! I also started with basic gear at my schools newspaper. Keep it up, you'll go far. I'm fave'ing it.

Superb work in very difficult conditions. Someone who knows what they're doing but with a D3 or 1DMk IV? f/2.8 lens? Top Marks (8)
