    Still need to get a tripod so I can take better shots at night, spider one came a bit out of focus and a few spots in my sunset one were a bit out of focus as well, oh well.

    Gary, what is your method for getting such crystal clear photos of fast-moving subjects? Also, what camera are you using? All of your shots always look absolutely brilliant.

    Probably well-lit (because it's day time) and an uber-fast shutter speed.

    Definitely a fast shutter, that's how the pictures are clear while they move around.

    TY I adjusted my monitor two days ago and don't like how it's acting and am trying to get it back in specs!
    Lots of luck!;) I use a large aperture or f/ stop on well lit days. The pictures taken at the Jr. Rodeo were pretty easy due to overcast which created very even lighting. Then I set the shutter to continuous and just let her rip while the action is taking place. The camera I use ATM is a Sony alpha 100. I like the alpha mounts because they use the same alpha mount as Minolta and Minolta len's are really good and affordable. I use Minolta lens' exculisively because I can't afford the Karl Zies lol ;)
    It was overcast but very bright which allowed for a reasonably fast shutter speed with a wide aperature due to the extremely even lighting. Most of the pictures were @ 1/400~ 1/500 of a sec.
    The tricky part is actually keeping auto focus while the action is happening. Most people like a little blur in the photo to show movement like a prop on a plane in flight ect. But with decent lighting and setting up f/stop and ISO it was not to difficult.
    Thank you all for the comments! :toast:

    Nobody was hurt but a couple trailer houses had the roofs blown off so the town is trying to figure out how to get them under a roof.

    Dang, I'd get one, but I don't have money to spend at the moment. (I already spent what I could, on pre-ordering Red Orchestra 2) :banghead:

    Anyway, here's a photo dump from the other weekend, lots of flowers from the wedding and then on the way home, I saw an awesome restored VW.
