I love this image. Your gallery is loaded with fine work but this one really does something for me. I am curious however, as to the identity of the spires in the background. Dale #633923

Thank you so much, Patrick and Dale!

Dale, the spires are various flagpoles in front of an outdoor shopping area in downtown Phoenix. #4143880

This photo is really cool! Did the bus just take off that moment, or was it passing through? Seems your timing was right on! #4171784

Hector and Joerg, thank you VERY much!!!! Joerg, the buses were going buy every few minutes, so I set up my tripod with a long shutter speed, and waited. I probably took about 20 shots like this until I got the effect I wanted. #4173969

Joerg Schlagheck April 16, 2007

It was worth the effort and I admire your persistance. You know your stuff! #4175886

Congratulations on the finalist, Alana. Glad yours got picked as I really thought it deserved it. Posted another picture of the old truck today. I'm just learning how to use the editing program. I would really appreciate your opinion, when you get a chance... Joerg #4336955
