Which one are you talking about? The photos are so different between one shot and another! Even between like the first and second photo, one is heavily photoshopped while the second looks like jpeg coming directly from camera with telezoom.

Was at admiring theses groups of photo and how the photographer do it. Any one can help share how to do these type of shoot? Exposure and Iso. Interesting shots.
i don't really understand your question - exposure wise, for the darker scenes, bump up iso, etc.... :dunno:

Hi bro, did you mean 1st photo was photoshopped(heavily, not the usual minor tweaks )? I saw the newspaper report with similar photo and I thought the setting was nice...lighting + water reflection.

It looks like a clean shot using FF with the low nice light...but I can't really tell it's heavily photoshopped. Is it heavily photoshopped?:think:

TS, I also don't understand the question. does metering correctly satisfy as an answer?...photos are taken at different light...

A good picture is a good picture, photoshopped or not. If the photographer is not there at the right moment, that image will not be captured. A photoshopped image that is able invoke feelings is anytime better than a non photoshopped image that can't. Just my 2 cents worth of thought.

I have the same thoughts. Postprocessing does indeed make a good photo even better

My bad, for assuming. Reasons I would have thought that
1. lighting and sharpness of water splash at that time of the day/lighting
2. multiple horizontal lines across the top part of the picture , extending to below beyond where the runner's feet were.

Guess that's assuming too much.

Agree you on that point. However, if we rely on PP then we are not improving our photography skills but always relying on PP thinking that if we take bad shots, it can be solved by PP. :cool:

Thanks for the advise. Actually the question as How they do it? Do they use telephoto lenses or they are position nearer to the participants. Most of the good places were occupied very soon. So I have decided to take the fireworks over the floating platform and have to go all the way back up. But whenever there is good shots , the spectators stand up and waves and block the view and it's not easy to get the shots. Hence I was wondering how they do it?
