Try time!

By MattRW
Aaron Mauger firing a pass off to set up Doug Howlet for the opening try of the All Blacks vs Ireland test in Hamilton NZ.

Was taken from the stand - a bit tricky to get a real sharp image when you don't have a $5000 lens like the pro's!!

Taken at 73mm, f4.0, 1/100 sec.

Why so a slow shutter speed?

It was 30 seconds into the game & I hadn't quite got the camera set up properly yet!! A bit inconsiderate of them really!!

For the rest of the game I bumped it up to ISO 800 to get a better shutter speed.

Hi Matt - nice to meet you on this site. I remember this game so well. We almost made history that day. I think the blurring hasn't ruined the shot too much for you and you've got excellent colour! John
