The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Bullseye, Ace!

Jon Milan saw yesterday's nice shooting, and sent in the most appropriate response:


You can check out the lead photo on my site -- the firing of a rebuilt Crimean War cannon.

The absolutely uncropped version is at -- the only photoshop change is a mild "unsharp mask".

Shutter released at about 1/10th second after the massive "boom".

The particles you see flying are burnt toilet paper.

The shot's particularly impressive when enlarged to at least 3' by 4'



Awesome shot, Jon! A Crimean war cannon definitely beats a tear-gas grenade, any day!

I hope you don't mind if I post a thumbnail of your picture here—It's way too cool not to share.

For those of you who would like to own this impressive photo, you can buy a print here. Me? I think it's going to be the next addition to my office wall!
