    They tend to get sent out on email, but i'll post them here as soon as I get them :)

    Cheers to Roz and Paul and the rest of the Buckley/Swefta crew for another good shoot. Despite some of them turning into merry men wearing green, they can stil put on a course to test you mentally (or make you go mental) and master it as well...

    try and keep the rule of thumb of 1/focal length in mind... so if your using 300mm then you should be faster than 1/300th... obviously that becomes tricky depending on light, and the f-stop (which yours will be f5.6 or higher at 300mm)... so the only option is to hold it steadier, use a mono-pod or tripod perhaps, or bump the ISO, which gives you more noise (especially if you happen to under expose and need to push it back)

    IS gives you perhaps 1-2 stops, but I find that i still like to stick to the rule of thumb even for IS if i want it super sharp.

    for the web though, you can get away with murder (i do :D)

    Monopod/tripod is on order.

    What i should have done was to lean on the trees :rolleyes: or get a little closer.

    I can see another book being written about excuses for a bad shot with the camera??

    Reply sent to pm DazF! Hope it is helpful.

    I delete as many pics as I keep, Robs advice re speed and focal length is sensible but as he says you can get away with murder for the web. Just beware if someone wants a high res copy and it is all blury at full size.......

    I like the pics, especially the landscapes!

    James
