Hello All,

This shoot was purely for my own enjoyment and my attempt to photograph Autumn Leaves as they fall from the trees to the ground.

As the shoot progressed I adjusted my methods. At the end of the shoot I relied on fixed distance manual focus, and my wife volunteered to hold my off camera flash to add light to the falling leaves.

It was extremely windy. The leaves traveled fast. It was a very satisfying hour of shooting. I believe I was able to capture some moments.

The photographic quality is lacking in most images, mostly due to my error in distance judgment for my pre-focused lens.

Regarding the S9000, I would say it passed an Extreme Shutterlag Test, with flying autumn colors.

Looks like you had to use ISO 1600 to get those pics...?

Thanks for the post.
