The title is apt. It looks cool and inviting. Nice!

que beau dynamisme dans cette photo
Kay: Thank you so much for your kind comments!
Kay this is a very powerful image. I could have sworn Petra (on shutterchance) did this. Kudos.
Kay: Thanks, Busola. I'm not sure if Petra captured such an image smile I'm sure she could have smile

This is a really lovely, soothing image Kay.

Now then, looking at the grassy edge, I can see a double image. Forgive me for telling you what you doubtless already know, but in an image such as this, it would normally be caused by the movement of the camera associated with either the shutter button or the mirror slap or a combination of both. If you hand-hold at this shutter speed, there's not a lot you can do about this apart from maybe putting the camera in continuous drive mode, shooting 3 or 4 frames and checking to see which one is sharpest. If you're on a tripod, the movement is likely caused by either the shutton button being manually pressed or vibration from the mirror slap. Best solution is to use mirror-lockup and a cable release. If you don't have a cable release, use mirror-lockup and self-timer. If you do that, you'd press the shutter button, the mirror flips up and three seconds later, the exposure is taken after the vibrations have died down. Mirror-lockup plus cable release or self-timer is absolutely brilliant for dealing with either cheap tripods or very expensive tripods on bouncy ground! Hope you take this comment in the spirit in which it's intended! All the best, Steve
Kay: Steve, Thank you very much for your input. I will definitely take your advice. Unfortunately, at the time I took this picture, I did not have a tripod, so had to do it the only way I knew how. smile
