MenM: This Photo should have won!! The colours matches exacly the sharpness.
Both girls are sharp and full coloured. All other figures are unsharp becouse of movement and are just not BW. Very well done.

That's very kind, thank you. I'd always fancied a picture of a still person in amongst a blurred swirling crowd and this is the closest I've got yet. I'd like to try looking down on a station concourse or similar.
Funnily though I far preferred my other entry (Laurel and Hardy look a likes) that came 57th out of 60! Looks like the voters did not agree. Can I ask what did you think of it?

On Puffin Fly By in the It flies!!! challenge (3 comments in total)

Thanks both. the puffin was flying into the colony containing the burrow containing its mate and chick. It is looking down to decide where to land whilst trying to avoid Black Headed and Herring Gulls who are trying to steal the load of sand eels to feed their own chicks.

Another masterful macro insect, Percy. I especially like the colours of subject and background.

In reply to:

tecnoworld: Great picture. Just a question. How were you able to sharp freeze the persons at just 1/20sec?

Image stabilisation and luck! It was full aperture and on 400 ISO which is as high as I wanted to go. I see I took 30 pictures over 3 minutes and not all are sharp though focussing seems to be more a problem than shake. The lens has an old IS system but it copes with this speed ok.

Steve Bingham: Nice, very nice. And I see some cheater gave it a 1 star. ?

Thanks. I like the way you process many of your pictures so I take your comments as a real compliment. Worse than 1 star it is a 0.5 but well it happens all the time so I don't get too upset. I still think the scoring system is pretty clever working with low numbers of voters.

The Mick: Hello cjf2,
I really love the cinematic feel you've provided in this photo. Very intriguing shot and beautifully done. The title is icing on the cake. ;o)
Cheers,
Mick

Hi Mick,
Glad you like it. I've done it several ways including black and white. I wish all pictures out of the 7D were as easy to use! Funnily enough I'd never used the lens at full aperture before but this picture showed it is worth trying when the light levels are so low.
