Yesterday we visited the Queen City, the official name is Charlotte and it is the largest city in North Carolina. It’s about 60 miles (96 km) from us, a good one hour drive.
We went to support Ross in his body building competition and this time it was the 2010 NPC Mid-Atlantic Classic. I will post more photos of the men and women competition when I have more time. I worried myself about shooting this competition since the last time I shot with the Auto mode and I wanted to shoot with semi-auto Aperture Priority this time. I set my ISO to auto since I have never shot at this kind of setting before, and do several testing shots prior to the competition to make sure that I have the right setting. This time Ross has a disadvantage where he has little tan, and of course no shine and he came in second place. I’m not very happy with this photo set, somehow I couldn’t get the color to come out right.
We went to the pre-judging at 10:30 am in the morning and also stayed for the night show at 6 pm (18:00). There was several hours gap and we hung out by the Thomson Park which has a Vietnam veteran’s memorial on display.
There is a huge tree with tumor at the park, like people trees get sick also.
