    Those are some very imaginative, and well timed, shots Rich. If you show the missed attempts next to the successes there should be an inspirational message there somewhere.

    Young fellas just need to work off some energy, thinking before acting to reduce the labour would be counter productive (and unnatural).

    Seeing as you asked nicely although why you want to see shots like these I don't know.
    I guess it gave me a chance to have a play with LR5 at least anyway so thanks.

    Dragonflies, again

    K1W1; Like the timing on the second shot, just before impact.
    Went out pond-walking this afternoon and took these shots of dragonflies
    The mating pair and the single perched Dragon are Dot-Tailed White faces.
    The hovering one is Ocellated Darner. According to the d'fly book, the behavior I observed is typical of this species, hovering along the edges of ponds and in shaded areas.
    Getting a bit better with the in-flight stuff, still discarding more than I have good though, timing is everything.
    One other trick is to get a good contrasting background, makes the focusing more accurate and less prone to wander.

    If you look close you will see that the axe head has actually bounced up after hitting the wood. Bad shot, bad timing, bad axe technique.

    Photowerkz, yeah I did that a couple of years ago. Mainly due to heavy duty life stresses.

    Actually haven't been out on a photo trip in about 5 weeks. Good thing Dread and the other guys have had nice stuff to post.

    Nice shot of the headphones.

    Tim, that's what a camera is really for...
