Ever had one of those shots that just took forever to get it right? No editing...just the perfected shot, and maybe a description of what made it hard.

Taking this kind of a picture was in mind from a long long time. But there was a catch, it demanded two people to get it rite, at least it seemed so.. but that while I was taking a walk, an idea stuck.. EUREKA! ran back home, took out the camera, tripod, remote and after 5-6 tries, VOILA! got it just about perfect.. I was jumping with joy.. Sometimes the pleasure of doing it all alone is quite immense ;)
