    I'm not a sports photographer, I'm a nature photographer. But, my oldest daughter competes in Gymnastics, so I try my best and capture her. Here's a few photos from the past year...

    Very nice! My son used to compete, and I found that it can be very difficult getting good images in the gymnastics venue. You've captured these well.

    Tell me about it! No flash allowed and my fastest lens is f/4. So that means ISO 3200 is a requirement. :confused:

    Thanks for looking. :thumbup:

    Nice! I like how you captured the concentration on her face.

    Composition is really good for such action shots.

    You're GOOD!

    Great shots Mike. I spent over an hour on your website last night, my wife loves your work to.

    But on topic - Pics 2 and 4 really stand out to me.

    My grandaughter is also a level 5 gymnast. I am trying to capture her performances, but the shots are still very amateurish. I have a Rebel xt and a Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 lens. My current skill level is little more than point and shoot.

    Any helpful hints are welcome.
