    Thanks all for your comments. Each one is appreciated. I think I'll toss the near miss photo in outtakes just for fun.

Mepo - you play net in the ice capades??!!!! Talk about a competitive spirit!

    Nicely done Jade -Brings back memories. I spent a lot of time on skates when I was growing up - I mean, what else is there to do in Winnipeg, in Winter???

    Congratulations - no fair having such a cute model. Just to clarify my earlier comment - since I am unable to stay vertical on skates they put me in goal wearing winter boots.

    Steve Ah, the lighting. The most important part of any shot - here it was flat flat flat as you have noted. Some side light would have added real life to that expression.

    So many cute shots in this group! Fabulous pose and expression, but I would have cropped a lot tighter. The lighting is kinda flat too, though understandable on an indoor surface.

    Joanna Well at least I'm not shooting photos through a fence! Lol! O.k. I think you are right. The glare was the best I could do to bring that out and if you look carefully and have a good enough monitor, you'll see the skate cuts slicing into the bottom end of the frame.

Lo I had a few shots to choose from; see outtakes.

    I'm not familiar with ice rinks but I have to say I dont get the sense that it is ice she is lying on.

    Great shot from an unusual angle. Centering the subject works beautifully here

    OSD Welcome to Canada! Skating is like so much else in life, practise, practise, practise!

The second layer in Screen mode (in Gimp layers) over the lower layer in Normal mode was needed to bring out the white in the rink; otherwise you end up with a nice white rink but a washed out subject if you just try to adjust brightness, or Dodge or curves or....

    If I tried skating I would be the other side up. I would be on my backside. I have been on skates twice in my life, and I'm a Canadian
(now).
Nice job on the overlay and nice pic overall.

    Michael, your "usual position" meaning wearing figures skates, I presume, Lol! I knew it! You were a member of the ice capades! Just wonder what costume you were wearing! (Now there's the set up for the punch line if there ever was one...)

Wait! I know, not the ice capades, the barrel jumping team!

Am I close?

The reflection was from the overhead lighting and I shot her where she fell (which somehow sounds backwards) so no options for me! It is always fun!

    I can see that this young lady has appropriated my usual position on the team. Not sure about the reflection. What a gorgeous smile - love it.

    mrsawyer I thought as you did but on second thought concluded the framing was fine. I think it is likely more the frame doesn't fit screen issue.

    Nice subject for the theme. I think the framing would have been improved by leaving less background at the top of the picture. The lighting on the face seems a little subdued (though it may be my screen).
