    Anytime :) I also took these pictures with the tourist camera (20D) from where I sat. Actually I am not really a tourist since I have been back to Hong Kong for a while. ;)

    A bit off topic..

    yes, i am, esp. want to compare types of lenses in different circumstances with different lighting condition etc. Actually, if you didn't know, if you go to the Chit-Chat sub-forum and look into the Badminton Photography thread, i've posted a few times recently..;) :)

    actually, you are better off with EOS-1D MKIIN

    with 8.5fps, we will all be happier :)

    I was using the Canon EF70-200mm F2.8L IS USM. I must confessed that I enjoyed the games so much and I didn't really take many pictures. The seat that I had also gave me limited angle to take those pictures since it was behind all those big TV cameras.

    Pic. 1 Hong Kong Cheerleaders for Hong Kong 2006 Open ;) (they are actually dancers performed during intermission :) )
    Pic. 2 Chinese Percussion during intermission while the audiences rushed off to the yonex souvenior store to buy some Hong Kong Open 2006 editon Yonex T-Shirt (the one that LD and LCW wore with the dragon on the side) and line up for LD, LCW, TG and CW autographs in the lobby.
    Pic. 3 One more picture for the Wan Wah and Tan Fook's fans. The playing style of these dynamic duo is one of a kind.

    A bit off topic..Excellent job..

    winston, sir, thanks for the info...wow, considering your seat location and the camera lens you're using, i must admit, you really did a very good job. Even from that far off the distance, from looking at all your pics, they are "super" sharp, action or non-action ones. Too bad the lighting wasn't as desirable as you wanted...Good job, again!..;):):cool:
    On that note, maybe for next yr's HK Open, you can join the BC Photography Fraternity in HK with Cheung and red00ecstrat..a triple-team task would be wonderful..:) :cool:

    This should be interesting and I can learn from Red00ecstrat and Cheung since they took great pictures. I am still experiencing taking pictures in high speed with low light. :) :rolleyes:

    I could see Lin Dan trying to make amends by wearing a Chinese 'cap' during the prize giving ceremony! How come LCW is barren on his head?
