About me:

HAVE PurchaseD an IST*Ds and see if my Canon G2 can reach 200,000
shots..(EDIT)...I
don't think so but **EDIT: my Canon G2 did not reach 200K ..it was kind of halted at
about 86K when I got my IST*Ds (in Dec 2004) which went on to about 88K when it
got replaced by my 2nd K200D in Mar 09 :D. Got a Pentax K-r in Dec 2010 and a Pentax Q (w/ Prime and FishEye) in Sept 2011 :) and added the O2 (Wide Angle Zoom) and O6 (Tele Zoom) to the Q, as well as, adding a Ricoh GR IV this past May 31, 2013 and, after thrashing my Q and 06 lens, I know have a Q7 and another 06 lens :D

Thanks Ian and, sadly, it was after I chose it, I realised that, when shooting it, I had cropped the bottom of the tyre off :o …… :( As I say with all my "almost" pics, next time ;) As well, I had another shot with the full tyre, but, it was just the tyre :(

Hi Maiti,

Have you asked the challenge moderator, "They call me Hans", what his thoughts are? Who knows, he might agree with you and give me the boot :o … :)

Absolutely noting was extraordinary about it but, hopefully, a bunch of other photographers will come up with some extraordinary pics :)

@ BarnET, Last time, I checked old bean, sensor size didn't really affect shutter speeds and freezing of subject capability ;) Also, by the extensive number of pics in your gallery and the number of challenges you competed in, I bow to your photographic superiority :)
