A group of guys playing basketball at night, under the lights. I became interested in the motion effects, and took dozens of pictures before I got this one.


D80, VR18-200 @ 170mm, f/5.6, 0.6sec, ISO 200

Thanks, Bob. Definitely not hand held. And I cannot tell a lie, I don't know. I guess we'll have to leave the mystery. Best, Mark.
