I don’t normally go around taking pictures of cheerleaders, but today the University of Bristol hosted an Olympic-themed street party to celebrate Universities Week and to showcase some sporting talent.

I thought the whole event was a bit lame – no real sports displays, just a few people playing a variety of sports messing about in the street. I think I saw football, lacrosse, frisbee, and cheerleading. The lighting was grey and overcast and I hardly took any pictures. The only one that came out close to OK was this one.

I’m pleased with the timing of the shot, but the exposure is not right, the composition is lacking, the focus is not fully sharp, and due to the relatively dim sunlight the shutter dragged a bit and the cheerleader is blurred in motion.

Oh well, next time…
