    Very sharp capture. Nicely done. How close were you for this shot and what kind of lens are you using?

    Pictures can date quickly, especially when they portray the doomed optimism that football fans invest in their sporting ‘heroes’. All the flags of St George are gone now. I don’t know where. Just gone...

    Another retake of a shot I did years ago. The first version is posted in the June 2008 thread. This castle is not illuminated at night, so I had to light it myself. I used three strobes, all with CTO gels. It was a bit scary because I had two feet of my tripod right on the edge of a road behind me, and cars were passing by every few minutes. Thankfully, nobody flattened my camera...or me. ;)

    Ef 400mm f/5.6L USM (no IS). I was perhaps 50' away, and cropped the photo somewhere around 33%+ (if I well remember). Had to set the camera to AI-Servo and take a bursts of around six photos in order to have three or more that were very sharp. The little birds don't stand still :D

    The blue background is the sky. I was camping at a small mountain top during the weekend.

    Amazing lighting, and you got the bird at just the right angle. It looks perfect enough to be a studio portrait. :)

    Ah yes, it looks much better now! :)

    Beautiful balance of light here. A bit of fill flash on the people might have been a nice touch, especially for the guy at the table.

    I really like how the fireworks are the backdrop for something else, though I'm not crazy about the very centered composition.

    ^^I like how all lighting sources seem to be properly exposed, from the flame in the lamp post to the night sky. Is this a self-portrait, by any chance?

    ^^Very pleasant. Do you mean playing with aperture in order to get a narrow depth of focus, or playing with the Apple software Aperture?

    This is Tingvellir in Iceland. Its where they established their parliament in year 930, and a lot of the great events in Icelandic history has taken place there. There was an epic atmosphere for sure.

    Yeah, I agree. I tried playing around with the cropping a bit, but for some reason they all looked wonky. I also would have liked a few spectators on the rocks. It was far too cold for me to snap more than a few photos though. :p

    Thanks! Who would have thought that such a simple concept (photography) could be so fulfilling and maddening at the same time? :p
