The Duchess Part III

Recommended Posts

At Rawtenstall on the Sunday, she was the very last train to leave the station, it had been a pretty grim day, but 30 minutes before she was due to depart the clouds broke and the sun came out. Taken using the Tokina 11-20mm f2.8 wide angle lens. I had the camera on the low wall, so I couldn't actually see what I was photographing - you can just see it on the bottom left - and framed it up prior to taking the shots. Camera was on continuous shooting mode so just pressed the shutter down when I figured it would be in frame. So these are 2 consecutive shots....

A real sense of power in these. Fine strong images.

I really do like that POV, but it's the first image that does it for me.

I feel image two is just a little too tightly packed into the frame.

I agree with Korky but the first one is excellent.  Good use of the Super WA.  Continuous shooting is the way to go.  On single shot, I always found that I tended to anticipate the shot and shoot too soon.
