Cracking shot- I read in Phil's about the idiot who stood infront of you all. And i doubt the person is going to come forward and admit it if he is on Epz now, but it would be funny if he did. Did you take a photo of him (post it) lets see who can identify him lol. Im surprissed the three of you didnt tell him to f off i know i would off. I mean who does such a thing i thought us photographers respected eachother Wink And no it wasnt me

LOL Brian. I did tell him in no uncertain terms but he just shrugged his shoulders and said SO !!!!!! That really peed me off but i had my 10 yr old next to me so didnt want to start anything. Different kettle of fish if he wasnt. Damn,didnt think of taking a photo of him. He looked ex RAF type and same sort of attitude as well. (worked with a few)

Unfortunately their was alot of ignorant people that just walked in front of me even though it was obvious we were taking pictures. My 12 year old was with me with his camera and he was getting very p....d** with people walking in front of him. We just know that we are better people than them!

Yep Andy. Very annoying as we got there very early to get a good spot then they arrive late and barge in.
There were 3 Swiss guys infront too and they took the room of six as they put their kit by their side instead of infront of them. My son getting funny looks
Off them then when he tried to get by rope.

Looks good to me Andrew. Great sky to set it off, but nicely lit and a good amount of prop blur too. I would be happy with this.
