This time around I brought along a tripod. It does make it easier to control background aligning but its the frozen to one spot that is killing me. I didn't do well on a leash when I was 2, much less now at this advanced age.
The results are more satisfying in spite of being tied to a spot with a tripod. Exploration continues, now to find some other sports to focus on. As always 3 shots bracketed with Photomatix doing the HDR generation and tonemapping. Final clean up with CS2 and Virtual Photographer to bring on the more surreal aspects.
