I came across this picture, i took this summer with my Nikon F-70 and a 300mm lens on Kodak 200 film. This was one of my last film pictures, just a day before i purchased a D-90. I was trying to photograph a european otter in a lake, but i failed, the animal vanished within seconds, and all you can see on that picture is the end of its tail ( I forwarded it to friend as a riddle-picture ). Not far away from that scene, i saw a frog jumping in the water, so i decided to take a picture from this fellow. Just in the right moment, a few seconds later he dived in the water. There is no time to compose the pictue, or think about diagonal- or other rules. Photographing animals ( except Chamaeleons ) is almost snapshooting. Maybe the reflection is annoying. I like t as it is. What do you think about ?

After reading the posts on this thread you have to ask yourself "What is life all about - really, when you come right down to it?" The whole concept of cause and effect has been casually called into question, cast aside, and re-instated, with effect becoming the cause. I salute you gentlemen. I am so proud to be a member of the Camera Collector.
Photax: You don't deserve this! Superb action photo!
