This photo is over a year old and was taken with my first digicam, a Nikon Coolpix 2100. I rapidly learned the limitations with this camera and should not have depended on it for shots such as these. None of them areclear, and I didn't have the proper correction for the lighting,however, I think this one fits this challenge fairly well. The player standing still in the upper right is nearly focused (and the key point in posting this image), almost a miracle at this distance with this camera. My daughter is in the foreground and her partner behind her and both are moving in the midst of playing a point. In some of other shots in this series, the players almost disappear in a cloud of mist...those are cool but not up to the challenge.....

Bob, while you're right about the lighting, I think it adds something to this photo - that typical "gym" look. You've met the challenge well.

i think the "cloud" shots would fit too...cuz they'd be showing motion....a lot of motion

that's wat is tough about photography....gyms and auditoriums...

the WB looks right on this shot

WB? White Balance? Anything good about this pic is pure luck. The original color cast was typical gym, severe orange tinged. My Oly has comp for this but I don't think the Coolpix does. Anyway, software to the rescue in this case...
