Points for Artistic Impression

I mean not for my ice skating, unless you see some kind of artistry in moving forward on the skates in a slow, almost gumby-like motion around the frog pond. No, I am of course talking (again) about the MAGNIFICENT skating show I saw on Saturday night. I took over 600 photos, of which about 15 percent were completely out of focus but the rest were kind of all right. OK. They were great. Even I can pat myself on the back for those.

I threw the initial set up on my Flickr page (to get a huge amount of hits of course) and also up here. Tonight I looked through the photos again and saw that there was still tons of good stuff from Saturday night and that, maybe, just maybe I could turn it into something a little more artistic. Yeah, some of these are black and white, but I wanted them to be artistic and dynamic at the same time. Did I achieve it? Did all of my hard work watching 1980s gymnastics competitions on YouTube to figure out how to photograph motion pay off? Well, let’s see the photos and judge for ourselves:
