I'm blown away by the wonderful clarity and excellent details in this action shot. Everything is just perfect, composition and exposure. Keeping in mind that it's a moving object you're dealing with, makes it even more impressive! Congratulations on your POTD! We'll probably see this image again! #10028526

Heather K. McFarland 3/8/2012 7:12:18 AM

Thanks so much everyone and BP! I used Aperture priorty for shutter and I use my 3D focus tracking mode with Lock on and Continuous focus mode for the shot Meghan! #10028552

Meghan Gonski 3/8/2012 3:11:23 PM

um I sort of meant which of center-weighted, evaluative or partial metering mode did you use #10029264

Heather K. McFarland 3/9/2012 10:56:35 AM

Sorry Meghan. That would be - 3D Color matrix metering II with the D300. Or full evaluative I guess. No spot or center weighted if thats what you mean!! #10030612

Meghan Gonski 3/9/2012 6:15:13 PM

yup awesome that's what I guessed or centerweighed was my second.i always like to ask :) #10031033

Meghan Gonski 3/9/2012 6:21:10 PM

oh also forgot to ask, does this have a tiny bit HDR applied to it? #10031036
