    Question Best image from your SONY DSLR

    I know we have the SONY POTD (Picture of the Day) going ... and that is a great spot to post your random "good image" for any particular day, but this thread I hope will address what you consider is your "best image", so far.

    Now, I know this is kind of "putting it out there, a little" so to speak , but hey ... you can always post another image later on, which you feel is better than the last one you submitted. The idea is to PUSH yourself and see what shows up at the "finished" line.

    I believe that modesty is not really a part of being on this board. Take a walk on the wild side, believe in your work and you are invited to post it. We all learn from one another and, to me, it feels like a constant climb toward improvement.

    Will we ever rival the photographic trendsetters and Gods of portraiture? Perhaps not, but what is the harm in trying? You could be just one click away from ...

    the most important shot of your life!

    Hey ... I have an idea ... go through your files ... pick the stellar image you have produced ... and let's see it!

    Cool My #1 shot ...

    Well ... when it comes to "favorites" vs "best", overall technical skill has to be considered at the top of the shot, so ... this one!

    Thumbs up Problem solving ...

    The F-22 is a good image ... but it is really a panoramic composite of two images ... and therefore ... not one shot. Still, it is amazing looking, to be sure. I guess that is exactly why I posted it ... because of the way it turned out. I found a solution to the problem of two separate shots ... and got it to work.

    A900 w/ Tamron 70-200mm @ 200mm, f/9, 1/250, ISO 320

    Partially a right time, right moment. As I was driving home from work, I could tell there was going to be a dramatic sunset. I stopped at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals building which has a good unobstructed view towards the west. The original plan was to take some stock sunset photos. Then I noticed the grasses and inspiration struck. Voila.

    It does look a little like the ridge of an echidna's back. Nice sharpness and bokeh.
