    wowee, great shot, David!
  • David de Groot said:
    Almost a great shot... John who was shooting right next to me too a shot just a fraction of second before this one and caught the muzzle flash.

    While John's shot is good, yours feels more "authentic" because you cropped the industrial chimneys out. I can almost feel the bang!
  • David de Groot said:
    Ah you're right, I hadn't noticed he'd taken a wider angle shot.
