  3. Hey Mike the lighting may have been bad but you got the shots anyway, nice work


  4. Excellent shots! The girl is obviously so talanted! Awesome images!


  5. Nice pictures in a self-described “terrible light” situation with moving people. My daughter was in gymnastics – she is now 25 but those are good memories! Visit my blog sometime, Mike.
