OK...here is another at ISO 3200 with about a 50% crop....wanted to see if the PP workflow allowed for any "meaningful" cropping before noise became unmanageable....

This look OK on my monitor but would like some feedback from others as each monitor is different....

nice capture.. what speed are you shooting this with and which lens?

I tried shooting with a 17-50 tamron 2.8 at H/3200 in the basketball gym and the shutter speed isn't quick enough to capture the fast moments.

MKIIn, 135 / f2 lens, 1/640 @ f2, ISO 3200.

Even at that speed you can see movement in her feet & fingers....

Some gyms do not allow for that high a shutter speed... One gym we go to we are lucky to get above 1/120... :(

As Brice and others stated, f2.8 is as slow as a lens as you can consider for these venues and why I own the 50, 85 & 135 lenses.....

Guess what!?!

My little Monkey just placed first on Beam and 3rd all around at states!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wuuuuuuuuuu Hooooooooo!

The competiton was soooooo tough, 40 girls in her age group. She got over a 9.0 in each event but only placed top 10 in 1! You know how you see a lot of girls walking around with 5 medals around their necks at most meets? Not here. I did not see one girl with more than three. The scores were insanely high. Anyway, she will now have a banner hanging from the rafters in her gym and she is very happy about that.

I will post pics during the week but I just had to share the news now. Proud daddy indeed!

1. It looks like she was fired out of a cannon... :D
2. Looks great on my monitor. Whatever you are doing for workflow is keeping the noise down to a minimum. I have trouble getting my noise that low at 1600 on the same camera while keeping the images sharp. Perhaps I need to do it in DPP instead of PSCS2 with Neat Image.

I'm off to see the details about PP in the other thread.

Nice work!!!

Actually Randy, while beam is not her strongest exercise she hasn't had any real problems with it either. Her scor on beam was an 8.5 and that was with a fall. That cost her 1st place by .225 AA The competition was tough.

Have any of you worried that the girls seeing you w/the camera is too distracting? Beam was the 1st event for her and she knew I was there. I tried to become invisible after the fall.

That is a great score....

I learned a long time ago a good photographer is never noticed. I take great pride when people bump into me and say...oh I didn't even know you were there. Lots of of crouching, sitting corners & longer lenses seem to help. Incognito is best and picking places to sit and be invisible is half the challenge. The girls never know I ma shooting during the event.....between events they are a bunch of hams.....

Cute pictures Randy.

I've found that eventually the girls don't even notice you. They might have a problem at the first meet or so. I just did a meet where I was actually on the floor and most of our team didn't even realize there was a photographer taking pictures while they were warming up and competing. They learn to tune you out. If they can't tune you out, how can they tune the "official" photographer up in their face.
