I took this shot from around 100 meters (328 ft.) aproximately with my 24mm-840mm built on point and shot super-zoom lens. Hand held using a wrist strap and a competition shooters sitting position on the side of a 35 degree granite slope across the creek. Bright sun over my right shoulder. Toxic mix for a beginner but.. I did the best I could and learned from the en-lightening experience.

9 for process and POV and picture quality. +1 for knowing that you were about 328 feet from and 35 degrees +1 for the hike and you showing your age. No, wait that's to many pts

Hey Flip.. I am a trained sniper so judging distance is second nature. I'm a wood-worker so angles are part of furniture design. The hike down the slope is just well.. exercise.. haha

The place is adorable. I like to have a place like as a retreat "spiritual" some weekend. For me this well processed, I would change two things, what Ed said (flip horizontally) and lift the sight 2 centimeters (0.8 inch approx.), Which calculating the di

Which calculating the distance and the objective, capture the crown of the tree and less riverbed. The effort is worth a ten.
