    Excellent - a photo that goes beyond "pretty" and has real meaningful content, tells a story, interesting lighting, and shot from an unusual angle too - now that's photography!

    Just used a freshly sharpened knife, Lizzie! (-:

    Thanks, Ankita...choosing the flowers was a much bigger job than arranging the meat!

    Brilliant idea, well executed.
    Shows that great photos are about communication, not equipment.

    Fabulous backlighting and a nice diagonal composition for emphasizing the falling and speed..well done!

    Thanks, rossi. If you wish yours were like this, go for it! Use a very slow shutter speed, around a 15th, and use a wide lens, such as a 28mm (on an SLR, much wider on a point-and-shoot). Stand right next to the trail, so close you're scared they'll hit your camera. Follow them into sight, and squeeze the button gently as they go past, still following their movement; never pause or slow the camera's following motion. Your flash will freeze the parts it's light reaches. Areas not frozen by the flash will be blurred by the slow shutter speed. Take lots, it's digital!

    Thanks, Suzy! You know, I just realised that I made a mistake captioning this shot. It wasn't shot with my 80-200, it was shot with my Sigma 28-70/2.8EX at 70mm. Oops! But Keving doesn't care - I just presented his Mum with a 24x36" print,and they're thrilled, who cares what lens it was taken with? A great athlete is what makes the shot.

    Hmmm...been thinking about Aidan's and Pete's interesting ideas.
    Imagine you have a wide lens on. Someone is gliding past you on an escalator, just a bit further than arm's length away. Their arms ("wings") are outstretched, missing your nose by only an inch, whilst their head is nearly 3 feet away, and their opposite arm near six feet away. The fingers near you will be very blurred (large angular motion) while the body much less so, and the farthest arm not at all. That's the effect I was after, which is quite different than what happens when you shoot from a distance, filling the frame by using a narrower lens. In that case, all parts of the moving subject are almost equally blurred, as they're nearly equidistant from the photographer/viewer. Sports photos of skiing and cycle racing often show this, while aircraft rarely do, only because very near access isn't normally possible or safe. I think my picture shows what it would look like if you could get that close to a moving aircraft. Pete's idea sounds like what a panned shot would produce, with the back blurred rather than the subject, yet another entirely possible effect. There are so many possibilities! Railton, thanks for your support - I've done a bit of (unmanipulated) work for the regional airport authority, I just love aircraft.
