Cameras just get more and more clever, don't they? But the operators need a good dose of cleverness, too. A camera can't previsualize, can't compose, can't tell a good pictorial joke. Cameras are idiots; photographers aren't.:-)(Except sometimes I do a good imitation of an idiot.)

Harrumph!!! :-)

I know that many of you, like monkey and barbara and vito and ferny and others, have as much or more knowledge of PS techniques and also the cameras that can do burst mode shooting. You all have the capacity for doing exactly the same as I did and I expect that we'll now see some of you posting shots like mine, but better!

Ok, ok, already! I accept all of the compliments from all the responders. Yes, I am talented! :-) Does that satisfy you?

I did a variation on the original posted image. Tell me what you think...

Stick with the first one, Geoff. This one caused a bit of motion sickness. (I was always personna non grata on merry-go-rounds.)

Hmm, ok Barbara - I guess I should have provided some dramamine with that second variation! :-)

Nice work, Ferny

For a moment there, I thought I was looking at "quints on holiday"!

Hehe - Ferny does indeed do nice work, but in this case this was the work of geoffs! :-)

Thanks, digcamfan!

Thanks digcamfan. This was a tough one to take for me. It took lots of practice and a few mis-haps. One involved a badger, but I won't go into details. There's children watching. Still, this one came out great and I'm very proud of it.

Gee, I never know which way to jump with all of you. First I get chastised because I am being too humble. Then, I give in and jokingly say I'm talented. And then I get chastised for that! I hope you were joking Ferny???
