Good shots. But if I can just make one suggestion? Hot lesbians.

I'm glad you like it, my wife and I got in a disagreement over my toning of them. She felt that they were too muddled, but they are sort of a funky couple, and the venue they chose for the reception (and hence the formals) had a high class old school 60s feel to it, so I wanted to try and do something to compliment that. Hopefully it worked.
Tried flashes in a different configuration at the opposite end of the rink this time. I'm pleased with the results and will probably go with this for the finals next month. I like the way the colors pop.
Messing around with the remote lighting. Blue gel on the back wall, tungsten warming gel on the right side and an umbrella on the left side. Her new avatar.
Looks great! The one thing I would comment on (and I'm sure you know) there is a lot of spill happening from your umbrella onto the back wall which is washing your purple gel out a bit. You might be able to mitigate the spill a bit by bringing the lovely Gal VanIZed away from the wall so there is a bit more fall off from the umbrella. I have also found it is really hard to add color via a gelled light on a white surface, it really helps if you are shooting against gray or black if you want to add color, otherwise you just keep adding light but don't get much color off of it.
