Clint,

very good shot!

Was it handheld or with a tripod?

Cheers,

Stefan

I think I used my monopod on that one. I get better results with the tripod.

I bought a Triopo tripod with a ball head very similar to Berlbach. Here's another ball head to look at.

That shot really grabs me, if it were mine it would be on the wall.
