    Smile Maintain ... focus

    Yes, definitely looks like a winner. Your original shot had the quarterback in sharp focus ... Photoshop took care of that, making Mike the true subject.

    I was trying to be slick ... looks like Mike is focused on the game ... and the others, simply milling about.

    Cool Optics at work

    Well, I think you are definitely getting the sports out of the lens, Frank. Mission Accomplished ... in a Bush-way. LOL The beat goes on!

    Even when you have to simulate the action ...

    This was one of the "final" submissions for my "Photographic Lighting" class, about two years ago, featuring my son and his hunting target.

    Regarding the Eagle's nest, you are going to have to get pretty close to get a decent sized redition. I've really taken a beating in the past two seasons, with the Eagle spotting me and then soaring right of of sight.

    It's hard to avoid the eagle's eyes. Much sharper than these I'm sporting.

    Good luck in your "captures."

    You can hunt with a cross bow? We are not allowed to use them in NJ.

    Red face Just props ...

    No hunting, just practice against 3-D foam targets. It that target had been in focus, you would not have been nearly as impressed, believe me.

    Darn crossbows become a lot of work after that first shot. With a 160-lb pull on the bowstring ... nothing short of the handcrank is recommended. It takes about seven or eight full cranks to get the string back ... or about two full minutes or more between shots. About the same as the time between shots with a P&S camera, eh?

    Nah, both my son and I have 70-lb. compound long bows for hunting. In fact, here he is, again:

    @ 28mm - f/16 - 1/160 sec - ISO-400 - Manual - Tungsten Hot lights - WB:3200

    He was a little 'fresh-faced' in this shot, so I positioned the hot light on his left to cast a shadow on his chin ... to give him a hint of that "Indiana Jones" unshaven look. Again, this was also part of my "Photographic Lighting" final.
