    Thanks. It started burning around 5PM yesterday here in Las Vegas, Nevada. No homes were toasted though the brush fire was close to some homes. I took most of the photos from a nearby remote control airfield though I also took some on the way to the fire and a few night shots from one of the freeways--turn on the VR, roll down the window, and shoot.

    I usually reduce the photos I post in the forums to 800x ? or x800 in CS2. By the way, the guy holding the baby looks sort of familiar...anyone special?

    That's no one in particular... just a random shot, cos I thought it was interesting... the contrast of a yawn on a carousel..

    That is pretty impressive. Did you tweak the picture at all? Also, did you sneak that lens into the game? I had thought there was a cap on the size of your lens at some sporting events.

    Stinks that there is a cap. But read the back of your ticket for an event. Chances are, any shots that you take, you don't own - since by using the ticket you have agreed to their terms.... That THEY own the copyright on all representation of the event, still photos, video, even your own sketches!

    Now, I am not sure that this holds water, but who really wants the headache either?

    I barely made it through security with my 18-200mm VR lens (Minor league hockey). Good thing I didn't extend it for them. The guard told me that the lens was too long (it was longer than his "measure card" by maybe an 8th of an inch). I had already removed the lenscap for inspection, and so I offered to remove the UV filter - since I was going to do that anyway. They then just let me pass.

    This is one thing that pisses me off. Not allowing "pro" cameras or lenses into events. One of the reasons I went to DSLR was for when I attend commercial wrestling, I wanted photos I could get good prints of. Well I am lucky if I can get passed the front door. I have contacted WWE and they dont care, aslong as you dont sell them for profit. Its the arenas option to let you in or not with equipment, which I think is unfair. The people renting and or paying for the facility should determin what is allowed and what isnt.

    Whats funny was a few years ago when I still had a Panasonic FZ20, I got checked halfway through a WWE Monday Night Raw show. The "head of security" came to my seat and asked to see the camera, he pulled out an actual credit card, no lie and said my lens was too long. I took the adapter off and it was fine then. What a joke, it wasnt even a DSLR! Oh and it was the Allstate Arena in Chicago/Rosemont Illinois, jerks! LOL

    Sorry for my rant, just pisses me off, it really takes the fun out of attending certain events. People can sneak in with bombs attached to there person, but dam, you aint sneaking in a decent camera!

    Yes, such rules are ridiculous. But remember that if you were to sell your wrestling pictures illigally on a regular basis, you might drive a certain photographer out of business...
    Not that that's a bad thing in this case

    I've been to sporting events where no such things were on the tickets yet I've been asked to quit taking photographs--though at times some of the "ushers" had little handwritten notes to disallow flash photography, interchangeable lenses, and lenses over a certain length. Meanwhile, I've seen P&S flash photography being clicked away. I've also been asked to quit taking photos in private places open to the public while standing next to around 100 others clicking away with point and shoots. And recently the same thing has taken place on public property. Ironically, many "legal bribes" or "permits" or "fines" may be imposed on those with anything other than a point and shoot--another reason, I still have a small digital point and shoot. The thing about being asked to "quit" usually means that I've already captured numerous photos.
