I have just come back to look at this image again, and can't believe that it has only had 29 votes!!! This image has captured a moment in time, probably never to be repeated again.
I don't understand how the voting works on EPZ when some images, which I regard as just record shots, e.g. a building, a plain landscape without atmosphere or something else to make it stand out from the ordinary, regularly get votes in the 100's.

I can only presume that many members vote for just their chosen ones, and not the merits of an image..........

Regards Trev

I have to say this is a spectacular shot, worth a lot more attention.
I agree with Trev above me.

Thank you for your comments and the EC was a nice bonus Smile

please remember if you need clicks to satisfy your ego then really you should be re-evaluating what's really important Smile I know the system but I dislike playing the game lol

Brilliant shot. I can't believe it was as long as a tenth of a second. I would have been trying much faster shutter speeds. Just shows you learn something every time you visit this site. Thanks. I wonder how many attempts I'd need with just a remote release to trigger the camera and flashes to get anything remotely as stunning.
