Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.
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 MilanImages.com/Bullseye.html -- 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!
