A Few More  
A few more pictures from the original batch. Completely by accident, it makes an even 100 for the total set, up from 87.

I have two other similar ones to this, but strangely I missed (what I think is) the best of the three the first time through:

As usual, click through for the rest. The new ones are to the right in the main photostream (since they're out of order in the set, which is sorted by when they were taken, not when they were posted).

I like how you keep the subject in focus while the background is all hazy and atmospheric. Very artistic (I never managed to take anything more than a bunch of static photos where everything was in or out of focus). What camera do you use?

Flickr has all the technical details for the picture (and I actually upload full-sized pictures, because I'm slightly nuts, and I don't strip the EXIF data), but it's a Nikon D700 (digital SLR). With the 400mm lens I was using, you can't really get any other effect than that, because your depth of field is pretty small to get sufficiently high shutter speeds to do that sort of shot hand-held.

I'm quite fond of it, it has everything you could want in a camera (the top-of-the-line D3/D3x aren't really significantly better, and while they have certain advantages, they actually have a few minor drawbacks as well -- not least of which is costing twice as much).
