Had a chance to catch a gymnastics meet tonight. My first time, and it was a lot harder than I thought it would be.

I played around with some 3D area focus, but that was a mistake. It wouldn't stay locked on a face, instead it would find a random body part and make that the focal point. I have some great, tack sharp shots of knees and butts from shooting vault! I ended up going back to my basketball settings, mostly because I was familiar with them and knew what to expect (somewhat). 2 teams, 2 hours, and 900+ pictures and I only got a handful that I think are somewhat in focus.

As always, c/c is appreciated! Especially on the post-processing. I tried to do some sharpening along with everything else and I'm curious if you can notice it. I struggled with the color/exposure on a few - the white wall (and the white legs!) were a challenge.

Thanks for looking!
Dave
