    Wow, lots of great pics! That pic of the Croc is amazing seeing the size of that thing and knowing your sis is the one feeding it. The only thing I'd do different is to crop off the handto the right for better composition of just the two of them (... or you couldjust let the croc do it


    Here's the only other whale pic worth postingas its a little sharper than the one above. It was quite dark and getting high enough shutter speeds toreduce the blur of jumping whales was near impossible. fwiw, the white whale was taken with a 70-200 f2.8 L and the Orca's were taken with the 17-55 f2.8 IS EF-S both on a 30D.





    Here's a link to a larger pic... posting it here as a URL crops too much off of the right side.

    That out-stretched elephantis areally great capturebut i'm finding a lot of humor in it now that I've done a double take on it... its seems wrong in so many ways.


    Which isworse, the dad not taking the cigarette out of his mouth or him holding his kid out over a precarious 12'(?) drop (a la Michael Jackson rip)?


    No offense to smokers or Jackson fans but I can't help but chuckle []

    I'm a big fan of these"post your best picture" threads, as they give us an opportunity to photograph and share the images. That way we can learn from one another.We should have more of these similar threads and more photographers participate it them.


    My fovorites so far are: the elephant, crocodile, muskrats and the orcas.

    It cracks me up every time I look at it. [] There's certainly some child safety issues going on there.

    btaylor: that elephant picture is the one I like the most...since you've been to VN I'm sure you've seen the way parents hold their children on motorbike? At least the guy's standing still in the image. I was originally from Saigon, Vietnam and very familiar with the zoo there. Sorry to know that you got mugged while being there.

    Absolutely! It always made me laugh seeing a motorbike with 4 or 5 people on them and only the father having a helmet on. Self preservation must be the key.

    Wasn't the end of the world. Luckily there was only a few thousand dong in there (very little). Certainly didn't ruin the trip. Halong Bay is one of the most magnificent places I've ever seen.


    Cheers.
