    I have always liked it when I got the target breaking in the picture. It would seem that it is mostly luck without the use of some timeing devise. But with a moderatly fast shutter speed you can get more than you would expect.

    3A is one of the best action breaks I've seen. The bird is just starting to crumble....nice job...Nice release trigger pattern on the newly painted traphouse too....

    What proves it was done with a release trigger? You mean you pull trigger guys never make a mistake?

    Thanks everyone for looking. In my 15th season of ATA shooting I am soon to be a candidate for a release trigger. At least on my Alferman, which I already have the parts for. Doubles is not giving me any problems yet.

    Thanks Bill. The Poland trip was the best vacation I have ever taken. I may have to change my name to "Tyski" instead of Killian's Red. I sure drank a lot of it while there.

    It was a Nikon digital SLR with a 18-70 mm lens set at f9 at 1000 th of a second. I would have had better results with a longer telephoto but did not want to haul it around all day.

    Killian, you were talking about lagging around a tele lens, I just bought a nikkor 18-300 for my N60 and its awesome its a good bit heavier but only maybe twice as long as the 18-70 Buts its pricey costs as much as the camera.

    Nice mid-priced Nikon lens the 18-200 VRII. I bought one pre-ordered when 1st came out. It's now my all around carry lens. Want to lug around something big try a 200-400 VR. Nice shots though.
