Caught in the whirlwind.....
Lens: DA 18mm-55mm Camera: K-x Photo Location: NE Florida, USA ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/2s Aperture: F9.5 
Posted By: sawtooth235, 05-07-2011, 06:11 PM

I used a 1/2 second shutter speed with my K-x mounted on a tripod and utilized the 2 second delay release. In mid-exposure I fired one burst from my hand held Vivitar 283 flash to freeze the riders.

I hope you like it, your comments are always welcome.

thanks for the sharing the picture and the technique. the result captured the scene profusely - the ghostly images of the rdiers, the sharpness of the rest, and the spectacular perspective with the diverging riders on the foreground....
