    Rob, you want to take that Lens back part of the photos are out of focus! (Must have baught it from same dodgy shop as March?):D

    Anyway, here are my memories from Gp7, starting with my favourites.

    Holly checks that he has braught an extra £10

    [​IMG]


    So that come the end of the shoot and having been whooped once again by a NJR100 he can gladly hand over the Cash.
    Good Sport Holly, enjoyed the day. Please note I won the who can wear the silliest trouser comp too.

    Now to knock you out of the showdown!

    The new Hammerite gun was much inspected and admired. Not sure if it will be available in all the usuall colours?

    Some of the Am shooters had to Push Off early as it this pace it will take 2 weeks to reach Gp8!

    Strange wind reported by Ozzy on the Zero range

    The 8 yard reducer was at a nice angle making it not so straight forward.

    [​IMG]


    and he was not the only one to miss it

    [​IMG]


    You heard of running water?

    Well East Devon had walking Water. Damm good idea and very welcome to have the mobile drinks fir am + Pm shooters, you did not even have t get up from your bean bag! Cheers!

    Note, slightly more glamourous drinks hostess might be an idea?

    Nice pics Rob F. I'm guessing there was some "manipulation" of the dof in some of the pics though. Doesn't look like it's all down to using a wide aperture. "Focal Point" or similar tool used?

    Cheers

    D :)

    Ah, well no... it's all straight off the camera, but I was using a Tilt/Shift lens which swings the plane of focus away from it's normal plane (perpedicular to the view) and allows me to align it at any angle... thus i can (when i get it right) align it to the side of a rifle and get all that in focus on f2.8, rather than needing f8 to get it all in... and i can swing it the other way, so it's ultra shallow... or get other odd effects...

    I was wondering if you were going to go into the "Big Dave" dance jig!:D

    Far play, you kept it together for the rest of the course.

    Gun sorted hopefully

    Popped over to see Doz earlier, wanted to check the internals of the ev2. Fair play I now know how to keep the inside of the rifle clean haahaa.

    Hopefully now with the internals not looking like Steptoe's back garden she will be consistant as before.

    Fingers crossed.......
