    You might call it luck, but you put yourself where they were, so you had a big part in it. I got a pic of that exact same type the other day! :)

    A lot of the photos I take are considered to be luck. I had to put myself in certain situations in order to get the shot, but I consider myself to be lucky in getting that shot.

    I put myself in the right place and they mock me! :biggrin-new: well done. A tad dark but quite workable.
