That's what you paid for. Pump the ISO.
Yeah, I tried to show the best, most interesting ones from the ones I took.
I should've pumped up the ISO to at least 1600. Oh well, it was my first time... you live and you learn.

Yeah, usually for my action shots I use 1/500s at least. So I decided to do that here as well. It looked pretty good when zoomed into the LCD, but in LR4 many were in fact blurry. I'll definitely be shooting at faster shutter speeds next time.
