    Nice. What were your camera, lens, fstop, etc. for this shot?

    I took it about 11pm at night right before bed and didn't want to get out anything big. I'm half ashamed it wasn't even using one of my DSLR's. It was shot using a Canon SX50: ISO 200 F/6.5 1200mm.

    Nice job! You say "didn't want to get out anything big ..." That 1200mm lens is not big enough? LOL

    Actually the lens is only about maybe 7inches long, shorter than my normal true telephoto lens, a 70-300MM. Once you see the camera you will understand why I wrote "half ashamed." I originally got it because the variety of pictures it can take without changing lenses. For events it rocks since it is so easy to use and so portable/versatile. It also does really well for Macro photos as I've taken a clear picture about half an inch away from the lens, no joke.

    I'm probably still an "amateur", even through I started using Canon AE-1's in the 80's, as my stand point is old school: 1) Don't just click like crazy and hope you got a good shot, take the shots you know are good. 2) Know your camera, environment, and your own limits. 3) Take clear pictures. I've never seen a publication using a blurry picture. All of which contradict the father in me who says : take a shot even if you are using a cell phones camera. If all you have is a bad picture it is better than no picture at all. A picture will spark a ton of memories and your mind can fill in the details and make it clear. My favorite quote is "Don't take a picture, let the picture take you."
