Thanks for all the wonderful comments. What a way to wake up to reading these.

The trick to these shots was centre point focus, one shot mode, picked the focus point of a railing/jump etc, and clicked as the dog was in line with it. Never went wrong. It was only when I was on AI Servo mode, it kept missing focus, so I changed it.
Still a great lens.

Tim: Yeah, this time I used the new monopod.

For mills, and also another for the Boxer fans.

Man - I have some shots of the roggies, too - but there is most definately a very clear difference between photos from a 5K lens and a 0.5K lens...
(that's not to mention the very clear difference between Warren's talent with a camera, and mine )

As usual, Warren, you've hit this one clear out of the park

Heh, thanks. Wasn't quite benchmarking myself though. There's apparently a regular photographer who follows the meets, and charges $6 a shot. I won't be there to make money, but just had 10min of fun. Wouldn't want to be unoriginal and hit on someone elses territory either.

Thanks everyone else. Glad you all enjoyed.

Thanks Kirst for another fun weekend away. Too bad the weather wasn't worthwhile in waiting for a Mount Maunganui sunrise.

Hey Mike, we posted the same time

Thanks also bud, been a while since I've posted too much apart from weddings and lens test. I have thousands and thousands of photos to share (mostly landscapes). I just haven't looked at them yet.

Awesome Mate! Thanks for the Lab shots. The second one is unreal. Like your thought process on the focus issue. That is the way I go when capturing Lily and Ruby. And to Kirst. He was really never THIS GOOD. He's just working harder at it to impress you.

Funny one Mills. The skill hasn't changed, just I've improved 10% by having a better telephoto lens.
Thanks again

Alter the paint job and it might be a bowling pin.
