And a second late congrats for another stunning winner, Donald! "Awesome!" At least here, I have somewhat of an excuse for missing this, as I hadn't really joined yet.

Steven E. Ray 10/6/2007 10:34:16 PM

This is absolutely superb Donald! The method my which you attained it is nothing less than spectacular. I lay prostrate before your photography skills :) #4891918

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


I used the same technique for this image as yesterday's, 1 second shutter speed,f8, e.v. +.7 and a tripod. For this one, I fired the shutter, paused breifly, zoomed the lens a little, paused again, zoomed again, paused again, zoomed again and finished with another pause. The tricky part is accomplishing all this in only 1 second, but when done properly will show 4 crisp focused sets of balls.
