    Understandable...

    ...Sealman, i just took a quick look at the picture's EXIF setting. It says:
    -Camera : Canon 40D
    -Focal length : 200mm
    -Lens aperture : F/5.6
    -Shutter speed : 1/32 sec.
    -ISO : 1600
    -Aperture priority (AT setting on the setting dial).
    Hmm, perhaps it's the shutter speed which you might have to increase/make faster, say 1/500, so the picture is less blurry. And you can increase the lens aperture to F/2.8
    You can play around with the camera's dial for the settings & see how it goes.

    To find out..

    -right click on picture
    -select Save As...(save it in your hard drive)
    -once saved, find the file and right clik on it
    -select Properties and then click on the Summary tab on the top
    -you'll see all the settings (of course you'll see them if they're retained w/the picture) ;)

    No. Chung was born in 1978. She won her first international title, the '97 Hong Kong Open, when she was 19 and her last, the 2002 Malaysia Satellite, when she was 24.

    No. The Korean contingent currently in Singapore is from the Kimcheon City Hall pro team, one of only 3 competitive teams in Korea that have both male and female players (the other 2 are Samsung and KNUPE). The team's stars are Lee Hyun Il and Lee Dong Soo but neither of them are in Singapore. The only national team players from Kimcheon who also made it to this tournament are Sun In Jang and Jang Young Soo.

    It is not unusual for a Korean pro or university team to represent Korea abroad. The recent WUBC contingent was all from KNUPE while the 2004 WUBC had a combined team from Incheon and Inha Universities. Last year's Thailand Open was basically a Samsung affair. The 2007 Canadian International was attended only by Daegyo. The 2006 Vietnam Open had only players from KT&G and Wonkwang University.

    event, thanks for the information on the Korean badminton scene. Do you have any information on Ahn Hyun Suk? He upset the top seed Tanongsak last night in straight games.

    was very impressed with the petite Thai girl Ratchanok Inthanon. believe she won the Cheers Youth International Under 15 WS title last year in Singapore. imho she will be a force to be reckoned with in the near future.
