Thank you, Gene. I could show you bad ones . . . I think ya just know when you're doing a really good shot. You just have that feeling. I can go for months without it, and then that right moment comes along and you know you have to capture it. When you're so used to your camera, when it's an extension of your eye and your mind, you just do it. Your mind, eye, and hands work together to complete the circuit, and a little light goes off to tell you you've done it. It will come. Trust me. #5893
