Challenge #14 in the Photos depicting One Word (No rule restrictions in this series) series. Hosted by barb_s.
Challenge has finished
Have you ever been invited to a party where you brought something uncommon that guests examine and guess what it is? Show that kind of object, the whole object, not a closeup macro. Plan your photo as if you were creating a still life. Lighting and composition are important. This challenge is not a snapshot guessing game. It's about a well executed photograph.

|Taken:||Friday, 27th January, 2012|
|Focal length:||51 mm|
|Shutter speed:||1/30 sec|
|Notes:||Detailed use is too complex to describe here, but bowstring releases are mainly used with short, heavy bows because of acute string angle making it difficult to draw and release with bare fingers. This type of release is considered advanced, and is not recommended (too dangerous) for beginners.|
