    For sure. I was refering to your recent pictures as a whole,including your other post. What we looking at, 300/f4 with a teleconverter? I don't know, whatever it is, it's herecy. Those cornering shots from your first post are great. Especially rider #35, that's bob-on, really fantastic. :)

    Great shots, really very good indeed. :thumb:

    Thanks :thumb: I use a 400 f2.8 for the long stuff :) I occasionally use a 1.4x converter but not for any of the ones I have posted so far.

    That'll do it! :D

    I once shot a regional rugby final using a 120-300 2.8. All official like, I was pitch-side of the barrier. Running up and down the side-line and behind the goal taking hand-held shots with that thing wasn't the best idea I've ever had. :) Still, I got away with it, although my left arm was a bit sore the next day.

    I used to have a the siggy 120-300. Very capable lens for the money, I used to think it was heavy until I got the 400 :) I do some stuff handheld when panning uneven horizons but otherwise a monopod is needed. :rock:

    Have you seen the 200-500 2.8? That would be fun to use hand-held. :D

    I went to the Peak District last weekend, done a 1 night camp and a hike. I'd taken my ND1000 filter, tripod and remote shutter to do some long exposure shots of the waterfalls there and the clouds passing over the peaks. I set up the gear at a waterfall with a lovely wooden bridge, the same as the one shown in the image below, then realised I'd left the adaptor for the remote shutter at home. I was gutted!! Teach me to check the gear before I set off!!

    I took loads of photos but a couple of my favourites are:

    Absolutely stunning work mate.

    A couple I can actually share. Been pretty busy job hunting, and doing shoots that I can't put up here (see my Flickr :thumb:)

    Another couple of great images there dude :), you are getting a little bit good at the rope tying now.

    Do you go through a shoot and think "maybe I should try doing some safe ones to share" I do lol.

    I need to build some kind of rig for holding my camera directly above my table pointing straight down, 'cos at the moment taking these:

    is an absolute pain in the 'arris. Trouble is, it could do with being variable height which makes it a trickier engineering challenge...

    If you need the camera absolutely level you could look for a copy stand. Most decent ones are pretty expensive though.
    Or you could maybe pick up an old enlarger (probably best one with a vertical column) for next to nothing and replace the lamp-thing with a mounting point for your camera. Some even have a tripod thread you can use directly (most Durst, Kaiser enlargers), others would probably require some modding.
