Bravo! Well done and fully deserved!

My vote matched 2 out of the above 3. I did provide an entry to the challenge, but of course it was no match for these and other entries, and I knew that before I sent it in. Playing along is about participating and enjoying life in the process.

Congrats to you Oly-pro's again.

Wehey, many thanks to all who voted... I genuinely didn't expect that. Not only was I not 100% happy with my shot, but more importantly - having seen a few of the other entries, I certainly didn't expect to be the person running the next challenge!

For this shot I used a blanket (not quite all white - as you can see by the pattern in it), and set this up on the lounge coffee table! I used the FL-50 off-camera mainly to lighten the background, but to also use this as side lighting - instead of frontal lighting - for the shot. I felt it created more of a relaxed look than those I took that were front lit.

So... my thanks to everyone for your votes this is much appreciated. I am particularly enthused by this vote of confidence as, despite deciding only a few weeks ago to remain with my Oly kit, I had been thinking prior to that of moving to the dark side.

Thank you.

Now... off to consider the theme for the next e-group challenge. I'll have this up today or tomorrow for y'all.

Well done John

How many takes was that then? I would say it you got the level of fluid and the flow spot on
