No mere flash in the pan

By Gomez
Taken last year at Scone palace, Game conservancy trust.

This a two photo composite, one which wasn't all that sharp, but had the gunpowder flash and the other which was plain but sharper.

I used cut and paste, selecting an area from the right hand side of the rifle (near the hammer) and overlayed it onto the original, erasing back some of the rifles details.


ISO 100, 1/200sec, f/6.3

Now if this was a comment on the puns you would not get a click. Fortunately the image is good. A rare example of an action image - don't care how you arrived there, it's the final image. I really like the sparks at the top.

After your top scoring by the judge last night I thought I would have a wee look and you deserved the 20 Martin! Well done
