This shot shows a young Rhythmic Gymnastics gymnast, participating in a competition in Potsdam Germany.
Here she stands on the edge of the carpet and is whispered to by her coach, standing beside her to comfort her before she marches on to compete.

A great photo, the girl is so focussed on her routine and the coach has this soothing look about her, it tells a great story and has been captured so well with such clarity and great colours and light

Shocking in that this little girl is so focused on what she is about to achieve - and her coach in the bg is a superb touch you can feel the tension and drama unfolding around the corner when she scores six straight 5's or fails to get above 4.5.

As Stu says a great story rolled up in a very engaging image - excellent work.
