You have got the capture of these acrobatic wee characters down to a "T", Cheryl: another cracking shot, the action totally frozen and the detail could so well recorded.

Thanks all.

Thanks Zoran and James for the UAs

ISO settings were very, very high! The image does not do justice to just how poor the light conditions were. There was a lot of experimentation going on as to the required shutter speed, and therefore the ISO was allowed to go as high as it needed to in order to maintain a minimum shutter speed of around 1/4000th.

Personally not bothered by the noise as the file could be cleaned, I just have not done so. There are quite a few images taken at a lower ISO, but because of entering them in a competition I have chosen not to load those to ePZ at this moment in time.

There were two of us taking images at the time and we decided a noisy sharp image was preferable to a 'clean' but unsharp or unusable image. The main reason being that on both camera files (nikon and canon) the noise was in the background and not detrimental to the main subject. Therefore if so desired it could be cleaned up.
