That's pretty good for a TV shot. Have you done TV photos before? It can be tricky to get the exposure and shutter speed correct.

One thing that concerns me is the color of the rings. That orange ring should be yellow. I don't know if orange was caused by the tv image or the color balance in the camera.

No Cal I don't usually take TV shots. I'll have to check next time they use this shot of the boys, but I think the ring is a dark yellow instead of lemon yellow. They're in the sea at Weymouth.

Later additional note: it appears that different monitors show that yellow ring differently - on this computer it definitely is dark yellow. It also appears to change with the angle of view eg when I'm standing it's a lighter brighter yellow than when I'm sitting.
