The dependable D7000: ballet images (+70-300) C&C welcome

The D7000 is a very good camera for events, like concerts and ballet presentations. I used it for my daughter's yearend ballet school presentation. All images in this collection (44 images) were shot with the Nikkor 70-300 VR, about 20m back in the audience. I used manual with auto ISO (up to 3200ISO), spotmetering most of the time. All PP in CNX2.

The D7000 was impecable re WB, I typically did very little adjustments when skintones were expected to have a natural look in white lighting, but many shots were under color spotlighting, so better leave as was.

The ballet was based on Simba, the musical. Here are 3 samples, collection is at Flickr:

And, of course, the reason I was there:

Thanks for viewing and for comments.
