These are really great shots. I would imagine that it is very difficult to get images that are flattering to the contestants, artistic, and technically correct all at the same time. And, you're dealing with really bad backgrounds! Your fourth image is a great example of success in all of these.
Thank you. I try to be conscious of all those points you stated. I REALLY do not like the "spread legs" shot and try to take them at a bit more of an angle than I have here. This was an exception due to the expression on her face. Being on the floor leaves me vulnerable to the bad backgrounds. People, seats, equipment and the like. However, I must confess I really enjoy the interaction with the team and coaches and the ability to move around. Thank you for your comments.
