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.

Taken: Tuesday, 28th June, 2005
Focal length: 5.9 mm
Shutter speed: 1/800 sec
Aperture: F2.8

Notes: This was so hard because these boys were swimming illegally in this Manchester UK canal. I pulled out my camera as I approached and they started to run, yelling "Copper, Copper!" It took a lot of convincing that I was not a copper and negotiation to get them to stay and jump, but eventually, they did.
