I've been slacking! Many thanks for all the comments. I know a gymnastics-starved forum when I see one!
Caleb: I agree with you about beginner's luck. It often happens to me that following a first-of-the-season event where I feel I was rusty, I come away from subsequent events within that same season feeling I haven't yet lived up to the precedent I set at the first outing! Go figure...
Matt: I appreciate the kind words. Thanks!
Guy: I certainly will keep it in mind. Thanks.
CW100: Thank you.
Vancouver47: Glad to hear the 1Dx + 85L II combo is working for you. I too am glad Nansy is back. Thanks for your feedback.
Tom: Thank you, my friend. The 1Dx is a very definite upgrade, even though I don't really understand why it would be so. The user interface is better, and the AF system is better to work with. It's difficult to articulate the hows and whys, but I do feel much more comfortable shooting with the 1Dx, and I find it much more adaptable to different shooting challenges. The 1DIV remains a great camera. But.... As far as this gymnastics thing, this post represents the baseline for me. Not much action, nothing particularly exciting. But I've wet the whistle and I'm looking forward to the first home meet (January 19). Should be a fun season. As always, keep those ideas coming. And glad to hear you enjoyed that Ashley blast from the past. Maybe Kristina will be next!
Andy: Nice of you to say. Thank you.
Manny: Happy to keep you thinking! Thanks for your comments.
Thanks, Bill. I'm glad you liked them.
Warren: Not just one team, but a very good, high-level team. I'm fortunate to be working with this particular program. Thank you.
Hey John, many thanks! I know you see enough of this stuff to get sick of it, so I appreciate your feedback. Here are a few more shots of Georgia. You won't be surprised to learn she has quickly become a crowd favorite.
