this wasn't shot with my FZ20, but i wanted to share with my friends on this board... i sentthis in to my local newspaper last Saturday for a "reader photos" feature they were starting today. the photo editor was impressed, and told me they'd use it, but i was expecting a small print, 2x3" or so like the sample photo they'd been running for the previous week to get readers to submit pics. turns out the feature photos will be about 3x5", on the second page, but because today was the first day of the feature, they ran mine larger, at about 5x7"... and right in the middle of the front page! :O there was a little paragraph about the new reader photos feature, along with a few lines of about the pic, where i took it, etc.it's not a huge paper, but with 47,000 readers, that's stillsome prettygood "exposure"!

Squirl, Telecorder, do you both hear an echo. That is one heck-uv-prize photo. I compliment you on this. Very unique capture indeed. Who cares what camera you used. Splentastic (splendid & fantastic combined).

P.S. Seedubs, Leber, you probably hear the echo, also. Great capture on this.

Very nice !!

Just a question:
Did you sharpen with PP or was the sharpening done by an EOS setting ??

Thanks Squirl,

May I enquire about the brand of the 80-400mm lens you used for the photo ?

it's a Sigma EX 80-400f40.5-5.6with optical stablization. excellent lens... opticas are comparable to Canon's "L" lenses in my opinion.
