My Grandaughter really Swings
Posted By: Sailor, 02-03-2008, 02:28 PM

We took our grandaughter to a local park in Lake Jackson today; it's incredibly warm for February - even in SE Texas. I grabbed some shots of her on a swing; all were taken w/ K10D and DA 18-250, ISO 100, 1/250s, -0.5 EV.


Getting started (93 mm, f/8.0):

The wind comes up (143 mm, f/9.5):

Pensive moment (250 mm, f/8.0):

That first shot is priceless and the last looks like a budding movie star. Elton John would be jealous of those shades!!

Thanks, Gents. The 18-250 is very handy for this sort of thing - the more I use it, the more I like it.
