Hello there;

This one gets my vote. When I see a shot like this, I'd like to be there with you (so you could teach me a little more about how it's all done.)

All the best,

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Kind words Tom. I have seen several photos where I felt exactly the same way. This shot was actually done at a roadside lookover. I took several shots which is how I normally shoot a scene. I should have taken the 2 minutes to set up the tripod, but I opted to squat behind the rock retainer wall and steady the camera with my elbows.It seems that when I take the time to use a tripod, I also take the time to be more deliberate in my composition, ensuring the horizon is level, etc. For the sharpest shots, use a tripod and a cable release regardless of how bright the sun is. It doesn't take much camera shake to become apparent when using telephoto lenses. This wasn't the best lighting conditions, but as with most sites along the side of the road you sometimes must take what you can get. I would have much preferred to have been there at evening light. Again, thanks for your comments.
