Nice shots Randy. Shame to have a table of such bored looking people smack dab behind the beam.
Sigh...you are correct. The angles I have to work with in these gyms are simply awful. Small, tight and poorly lit.

The Judges tables in the Beam shots look like they could be cloned out very easily.
I think they could be cloned out....and I may do just that becuase she likes this shot....but I have grown weary of manual WB adjustments and cloning out people, windows, lights, stains and crap hanging on walls. I can not wait to shoot in an arena when she goes to college in three years......

The vault image you posted has the slowest shutter speed of the set
True...and all I really had. The 85 f1.2 DOF is so thin that I struggle on these shots becuase the focus plane is so shallow. If I shoot a more basic routine then things are bit better (like below) but when things speed up all heck breaks out.
I tried the 135 at f2.2 and the SS suffered. Tough place to play for sure.
