Balance Beam Performance

A balance beam competition is photographed at it''s moment of peak performance freezing a young female gymnast as she is perfectly poised, upside down, over the beam in mid flip. In the background a huge crowd, out of focus, watches in rapt attention. The gymnast wears a black leotard adorned with orange and red flames. Her hair is flying behind her, her arms slightly blurred in motion. The balance beam stretches out below her. The image is horizontal but crafted for easy use as a vertical or square with ample copy space for headlines, text and body copy. This gymnastics photo was created for use as a business and life metaphor. It is a photograph of challenge and of rising up to a challenge.


Somersaults and Back Flips On A Balance Beam

Somersaults and back flips are fascinating to watch when performed on a balance beam as seen in this dramatic sports photograph. The young woman gymnastic stares intently at the beam, her legs straight and parallel to the beam and arms thrust upwards in her effort. This is a picture of focus, single mindedness, and determination. This is and individual performance but can also be part of a team effort. They say it takes 10,000 hours of practice to reach Olympic level os skill and perfection for a given sport, and this photo really shows the intensity required for success. This is a photograph of achievement and success, of perseverance and of calm and grace under pressure and often adverse conditions.


Balance Beam And Gymnastics As Symbol And Metaphor For Life And Business Concepts

Gymnastics, and the balance beam in particular, make great symbols and metaphors for life and business. Life, for example, requires balance which is pretty blatantly exhibited in this event. To be able to perform gymnastic feats on the thin balance beam highlights the practice, dedication and focus required for success. This dynamic and graphic image, depending on the headline, can add tremendous visual impact to any advertising and editorial message. It is the kind of picture that makes one stop and delve further and remember longer. Other qualities that come to mind when viewing athletic balance beam performances are flexibility, power and accuracy. Athletes are great for adding visual impact because we all tend to wish we had the skills and talent of famous athletes, not to mention the accolades and wealth that accompanies peak performances in pressure situations. The woman in this picture is fearlessly facing risk in her pursuit of perfection and possibilities.
