Lens used 80-200/2.8@8, no crop, only basic PP in LR.

I was on a camera club excursion yesterday and had huge opportunity to put this into action, my only problem is I keep forgetting to turn the SSM off when the camera is on the tripod!!

This one was taken hand held leaning on the guard rail of a bridge and I believe it fits the criteria.

1/8s,f6.3,280mm(35mm equiv 420mm),ISO200

Try turning off the AS instead. There's a diagram in your manual to show you which button. LOL

rosie: i think your image is composed closer to 1/2 rather than 1/3.. imo its not really fitting into the context (saying that to motivate you for a second attempt:)

Hi,

here is my atempt, i tend to overexpose because my computer is not calibrated, so everything looks dark.

This photo was taken with sal 18-200.

ana: i dont think the overexposure is too severe. Composition is imo fine. But may be you could do something for the uneven horizon, its a little disturbing.

thanks for your participation:)

Ok, what about this one? I deliberately put the "action" on the lower 3rd and try to catch the colors and drama of the approaching rain storm in the upper 2/3rds to make the shot more interesting. Is it to much "wasted" space? Also I may have been carried away and went a little over the top with the selective colors.

This was taken monday night exclusively for this assignment, I think the whole "rule"talk is confusing and I hope to learn something so bombard me with CC please
