I provide sound systems for a few dance competitions and bring my camera along for practice.
I welcome any advice and ideas on post process to give these shots more 'pop'.
The action shots are in the K-5 for Sports thread, the full set is at Aliso Dance Classic 2013 Photos by crewl1 | Photobucket

I agree with Roman if the girls were isolated that the shots would pop more.A good series never the less.BTW-how is the Bigma treating you Larry?--charliezap
Thanks Charlie I'm going to try and work on that at the next event.
I'm slowly getting comfortable with the Bigma. I posted a set here from a visit to a local wildlife preserve.

They look good - if you want to make them "pop" a bit more, perhaps crop a bit tighter (but I would leave the floor reflections in) to remove background distractions, and try tweaking the curves a bit to optimise the contrast. Many of the images look a little flat on this monitor.

I think they look good Larry. Gyms do indeed generally have tricky lighting conditions. Unless you are printing them billboard size I think the are fine.
