I caught this little indiscretion with a 300mm lens, f2.8 with 800-speed film on my Nikon D1-f (the "f" stands for fantasy.) from across the bar. What I was doing at this particular bar on that particular night I will never speak of. :o

MudBug, this was a much cooler photo to work with.

Thanks MacBandit - I am a Creative Director at a Ad/Promotions agency- not exactly fun work but it pays the bills. In my down time I do my own digital artwork, help friends with zines and goof off in Photoshop. I'm glad MacRumors has this particular thread here - it's always fun to have a challenge and keep the skills honed.

p.s. I always thought Springfield, Illinois was the true home of The Simpsons. I always wondered if anyone has kept track of every city and state mentioned in the show - I'll bet they've named nearly every state - could probably narrow it down from that, but I'm not that kind of geek. :D

The Simpsons home isn't truly anyone one specific Springfield but in an interview Groening let slip that he originally based the people off of Springfield, OR as he spent some time living in this area.
