Four Continents Figure Skating Championships 2009

New year, new software. I'm fiddling and it seems relatively easy to split events and name names. I did the Ladies Free Program but now that I have, I'll probably redo it when I do all the rest.

Again, I'm releasing the photos freely for non-commercial use. Unless, of course, the pictures are of you, then do what you want with them, but drop me a line because I'd like to know.

Note:I edit on the fly in camera, deleting missed subjects, blurry photos, etc. so that I don't run out of memory card space. One subject that I also try to delete are "panty shots", unless they were part of a particularly good sequence. If you object to a photo of you, please let me know and it will be removed.

You'll notice that I am completely partisan with my subjects. Canadians and other favourites get shot on high speed repeat, so there are way more pictures of them. Towards the end of the day when I'm confident I'm not going to run out of space, I also start to get lax on the in camera editing (lowered cutting standards), which often correlates with higher ranked skaters. I missed a few skaters in the first flight in a couple of events due to traffic. 8( It's totally not because I thought they were unworthy of even a few pictures. *sigh*

I think I'm getting better at capturing the events, but you be the judge.

Enough blather, have a look at the photos:
