I thought you might find this mix interesting. I was traveling through the Vancouver airport, and photographed the magnificent jade sculpture. This was hand held at 1/30 sec, ISO 800, f/2.8 with my 17-55. On the weekend I volunteered to photograph a local half marathon race, which started at dawn. This fellow was having a good time... I shot this with the 70-200 VR 200mm 1/1250, f/5.6 ISO 250. View attachment 15408 This is one of the race volunteers, with the first light backlighting her nicely. Unfortunately I did not have a flash. 70-200 VR 1/100s f/2.8 ISO 400 View attachment 15409 It is hard work running a half marathon, as this guy shows. 70-200 VR at 200mm 1/1000s f/5.6 ISO 250 View attachment 15410 This young lady makes it look easy though. Same shooting specs as the last shot. View attachment 15411 I shot this gull tonight at the peak of the sunset action. 500/4 1/10s, f/4, ISO 400 with MLU. View attachment 15412 Hope you enjoy.
