Vancouver Open Judo Tournament – 2011

10 02 2011
I was out at the Vancouver open Judo tournament last weekend and did a bit of shooting.
This is the first time that ANY Judo tournament was held in the new Olympic Oval. The light was great and it was a real pleasure to get out and shoot there. So much better than so many of the dark gymnasia that many competitions occur within. I was actually able to get the ISO as low as 2500!!! The full set is on my Flickr at:

Here are a few pics from the tournament.

Like Judo, speed skating, the original design of the building, requires the human machine to be functioning at full capacity
