    Beautiful morning, out looking for "subjects of opportunity".

    I really like this photograph. Like the way the path leads your eye to the hikers.

    Very nice indeed Kevin. I'm very fond of shots like this but a lot don't work so well (including most of my own !). But this one does work for me - mainly because of the composition and strong greenery - and the sun's rays too. I guess they are the reason you used f/22 but you managed the 1/10 sec shutter speed very well.

    Thanks guys,

    Glad you liked it. Dave, you are quite right about the f-stop, done purely to get the starbursts. I could never have pushed the ISO so far with my a77, but the a99 is at least 2-3 stops less noisy.

    I think that I just learned something new!
    Are you saying that it was your f/22 setting that gave you the sunburst like it is?

    Another I like it and it is liberating moving up to a camera with good high ISO performance.

    Hey, Chauncey

    Exactly so. That is the classic aperture that I've used and have read about. I don't know if it's the only aperture, or more likely the minimum or the best aperture for the effect. Under the circumstances it was also a real pain because it was dark in the woods, and I had to push to an uncomfortable ISO and an insane shutter speed. I was surprised anything useable came out of it. Bless the inventor of image stabilization.

    Hi, Paul. Liberating is a good term for it but maybe not strong enough. It has opened a whole new horizon for me that I can just crow about!
