From last night's race up 'n' down Sugarloaf mountain:
There were only three females, one 'the bloke' (the vet), one elderly, and the attractive one with the most perfect arse was blurry.
So you've got a bloke.

The organisers have asked me not to publicise the race on my social media - as I normally would - because they got massive amounts of grief after the socially distant - fully covid compliant - marathon they ran a couple of months back.
It was all outside, no registration (that was done online), with a staggered start (it was chip timed) and no prize giving. But because one lass travelled there from a lockdown area and another lass who didn't like her saw my pic of her at the marathon, she reported her to the police and UK Athletics.
And a big e-mail shit storm erupted.
She must have been going pretty fast if her arse was blurry or were you not focused
I use a variety of programs to manipulate my photographs into some hopefully decent artistic styles. The one used on the attachment is Topaz Impression, but I also occasionally use Coral Painter Essentials 7 or Gertrudis Graphics GMX, one of my all time favorites developed by a guy in Argentina. Great fun, just have to make sure you own the copyright on the original picture or its copyright free.What editing program are you using?
I bought a couple of Yeong neu flash triggers a couple of years ago. But the flash controller that comes with is an excellent bit of kit. You don't have to have it control any slave units but it fires out a burst of infra red and the camera uses that to focus, it is very quick and with my body (Camera) seems to work well.I pre-focussed on an area of path - zone focussed I think it's called - and she didn't run on the area I'd predicted they'd all run, putting her out of focus. And because it was dark and I wanted to keep the ISO down as much as possible, I used a wide aperture, meaning the zone of focus was fairly narrow.
Autofocussing would've been useless; it was almost pitch black.
I've a photo of her from an awards dinner night, but she looks even better from the back in some lycra.

Pushing so hard the head dobber is buckling.Tonight's night race. I think they're okay, but I must be out of practise; I put a work light out to put a bit more light on the trees and to ensure the runners could see the tripod I had my flash on.
And because I used a long exposure (1.3 seconds), the ambient light from the work light hit the trees/branches and registered on the sensor, making some of the runners look translucent.

Yes, there is, getting jiffed for Christmas decorating duties............................. Despite the LHCO stating that this year there'll be no decorations and then changing what passes for her mind
