But please accept my congratulations for your Yellow ribbon.


I did have concerns about that too but I was persuaded by others that the photo would be a perfect fit so I took the risk. I understand your views on this:)

Love your "use the tripod as a weapon" comment. I've thought about it a time or two as well on dark & rainy nights :) Congrats on the ribbon!

Well spotted! I did indeed use a tripod that morning as I was using my new Canon 10-22 lens and thought as it did not have Image Stabilisation it would need a helping hand to keep things steady.

@10mm you should be able to hand-hold a 1/20 with ease.

you can hold it all you want but it doesn't stop cows from moving ;-)
anyway thanks Paul for the response.

Thanks Cory, apart from this particular shoot, I have been using my 10-22 hand held at all other times and the results have been grand. I just took the tripod that day as it was quite early morning so the light was a bit low and also the tripod was a good weapon should the cows decide to attack me:)
