I absolutely hate Wal-Mart, but I'll check their sporting goods section anyway. It'll be worth it if I can find what I want. Horrible store.

Yeah, as an owner of a small town music store, I totally agree with you. It's about the only place in our town where you can get anything, though, as they've pretty much put the downtown area outta business in our town, with only those of us with specialty stores being able to hold our own against them. You can beat a Walmart, though if you base your business aroundgiving your customers the best service......Our walmart herewon't even try to carry the music instruments the other stores carry because they tried it a coupleChristmas seasons ago and I just beat them to pieces over it. They were still trying to closeout their leftover stuff inFebruary. Theyhave hurt a lot of other businesses in our town, though,but that's a whole another story/thread and I don't want to hijack this thread.....

Thank-you all very much.. It is truly appreciated ok here is how its done

First a Coludy Day

Sun at my 10 oclock

Sprinkler( just a round one Vitto )to the right of subject

Nikon D-100

200mm

1/90 sec

f8.0

-0.7 EV

ISO 200

W/B pre-set

AF-Manual

Radio Controled shutter release. Hooked to Lap top using Nikon capture software to set and trip the camera

And yes it is water Barb, But Camera is in a AQUA tech Rain coat..

Now the lighting is provided by a Vector Sport Spot Sorry Vitto Not the LED this time($17 Ace hardware) This little gem is 1,000,000 candle power ,battery powerd rechargable spot light. Works great for a lot of different applications..

and adjusted a little contrast using Nikon view

And that is how it is done.. good Luck

The LED flashlights aren't real expensive either, I think the most expensive one Walmart had was about 14 or 15 dollars, so you could actually get both of them on the cheap.... twice the fun!

I am in awe. Simply Beautiful. I figured sprinkler because of the angle but I thought late afternoon sun caught just right(you sneeky devil). The info is great thanks for the 'light' idea.
