  • Watching The Crowds

    lovely pic (liked) but bg highlights blown as is the usual case, I had the same problem when i went on safari,with hindsight maybe 3 exposures should be taken when you get a great photo op like this , 1 under,1 over and one standard, all i got of a leopard was in some dark bushes eating a monkey. :-(

    the only critique i could give is to remove the huge dust bunny in front of the plane, its always nice to see the cockpit but from this angle its not happening, nice pic tho, cheers martyn

    thanks Ty, the message from the dance choreographer was be part of a group but also be individual,i think i managed to portray that.cheers martyn

  • Golf GTi.

    it does what it says on the tin, as you mention the burning around the car could be more subtle,the only thing i might have done differently would be to go for a higher vantage point to show the whole of the sign in the background but if your like me you only spot these things after the event,Smile cheers martyn

  • Grand Finale

    thanks for your kind comments, the autofocus does a nice job most of the times keeping the dancer in focus using continuous mode,smoke machines play havoc with it tho, i prefer to catch movement blur at speeds of 1/30th but the performers like to see them selves in sharp (ish) focus so its catch 22,either shoot at really slow speeds and maybe get a pic thats brill or stay safe and get quite a few ok pics that the performers are happy with ?, most of the time i shoot at 1/125th and hope i get a pose during their routines, cheers martynGrin
