    Ok I am sure many of you have seen this photo plastered around the internet over the last few days:

    http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/apod/image/0905/atlantisHST_2009may13_legault.jpg

    This is Thierry Legault incredible photo of the Atlantis and Hubble transiting the sun.

    More so incredible than the fact that this was shot on a DSLR + telescope is the timing for the photo. The transit itself was only visible from a 5km radius on the ground. On top of that the entire transit lasted only 0.8 seconds.

    So here's a shot which requires serious planning, and timing, and I though what have you come up with that is well timed, BUT planned. Has anyone got an incredible photo that was no accident?

    My probably biggest effort came with photographing a lightbulb that is currently burning it's filament (can't remember where i got the idea from but alas it is not original):

    Pales in comparison but what has anyone else come up with?

    I don't suppose wrangling a well-rested baby, getting it cleaned, fed, diapered, de-snotted, and dressed in photo session attire and then bribing and/or cajoling it to sit politely and smile at you while not fleeing the scene or gleefully ripping down your background counts? :er: And there's a time factor, of course; it all has to be done well before baby starts to need his or her next nap.

    Probably not what you were asking, but the logistics sure tire me out! :lol:

    joel peter witkin PRINTS take some rediculous time etc

    he only does a few a year and :

    many of them require sets, dead people, deformed models, and then the print process.

    I should think that the photos showing the solar analemma during the course of a year would fall into the category of 'complicated'.

    The photo of the solar eclipse that proved Einstein's theory of relativity comes to mind but I don't have a link.

    Several years, different continents, a camera yards long and pretty much the whole of physics riding on it.
