Here’s my entry for the fourth round: Wildlife at home and abroad – Scary Monsters.
I took this just a few days ago in Italy. I spotted some birds flying in and out of a shaft of light. I prefocussed my camera and then waited for one to enter the light.
Canon EOS 5D Mk III + Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens.
f/2, ISO 2000, 1/5000sec.
You can now see the winning entries for this category. I got placed 2nd! Since my aim was to get in the top 30 in any one of the ten rounds, I’ve met my goal, so I’m really pleased. Here’s the table of results.
