    i am really impressed with some of the BC member's ability to recognize partially hidden faces and the gears the badminton players are using!!

    partial face is not too difficult. we have been able to guess by just showing a hand, a leg or a shoes.... badminton fans to the nth degree here. :)

    Master Dan, my deepest apology as I am loaded with other peoples' rackets (OPR) lately. I will probably string the off-spec new version Ti-10 on Saturday - it's 97 grams for a 2U :D.

    Nice pictures, lurker, but wouldn't the pictures be more complete if the object of the players' eyes/focus (the shuttle, instead of empty space) is included? That way, the pictorial message of 'My tribute to High Flyers' has it all.

    The shuttercock is too small and too far to be included in the same frame, and the whole picture will lose it's impact if i were to include it. You should know if you have shoot badminton before or played the game.

    This 'position' the player is at now gives a very strong image of 'powerful jump' with the legs curling behind. At this moment in time the shutter is at least >1meter away from the player (or the racquet). When the shutter nears the point of contact with the racquet, the player is no longer at this 'position'. His body will mostly arch to the front.

    What I want is the impact. Shutter is a bonus. Anyway, one would have a hard time trying to pinpoint the position the shutter is at due to the busy background.


    You should really dig out your films and slides and have a look through. ;)

    A jump smash will look its best when the picture is taken at the "decisive moment". This is not easy to capture with a still camera. In videos you can always "freeze" the "decisive moment" frame, which is where the climax of the jump smash is all about. In cameras the time lag between youe eyes and brain and the instant the image is captured requires great anticipation. A "decisive moment" picture will always have a distinct center of interest, which make contact with us.
