It's not easy to have a good focus in low light condition,at 12x zoom, handheld on a moving target. I think i did a good job overall. If you know how to do good focus, please let me know.

They are not all out of focus and also there is a difference between out of focus and motion blur, which is more of what is seen here. I think you did quite well considering the lighting conditions as I have been to Disney on Ice myself.

You can try a higher ISO and shoot in AV mode, setting your aperture as wide or near to as wide as it will go. In addition to that use spot or center weighted metering. Here are a few I took at the last one that came through town. I think these were all at 1600 ISO.

Wow you got very little noise for that ISO setting I guess those 10D's are a good buy.
