Banging the Drum Softly

Uploaded: January 23, 2005


A very hot sunny June day, camera on tripod, 75-300mm lens using 250. Had the settings at 125/16. Thus was able to stop the marching actions, but still allow the movement of the hand.

This winner proves that whoever said photographers should move in close to the subject was correct! There's nothing here that doesn't belong, and the slightly blurred hand is the crowning touch! #1081342
