FPC PoW! -- Week 06, 2008

The 1st day of the 12th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival was a great day for FPC members who went there. The sky was blue and had puffs of clouds--for the perfect sky photo. Most of all, the balloons went up and soared! Imagine that!

Majority of FPC members, however, came to the festival on the 3rd day, when the wind was stiff, disabling even inflation of the balloon. Even the night glow did not materialize. Fortunately, we had a side trip to Candaba where, although we had a rough time on the road, we had a great time shooting, NOT birds, but Isai, our model :D

This is NOT IN ANY WAY A PHOTO CONTEST. We just want to honor Photographic creativity :D

Now, in the order of date taken, our PoW!s for this week!

Richard's Description: Found this diminutive bugger in our garden and thought i'd give the Nikkor 105mm 2.8VR Micro a test. It was a cloudy day so i had to pop in my SB-800 on my D200's Hot Shoe to illuminate the scene. Took around 10 frames of this spider and i was quite lucky to get this shot. Shot handheld with VR turned on =)
