Actually Burbank. This was a huge animal adoption (huge event, not huge animals) held in Johnny Carson Park right across the street from NBC. They gave a presentation about being cops on horseback. They told us the horseback program is all volunteer. They get their regular salary, but they are required to pay for the purchase, boarding, and training of their horse themselves, and there is no guarantee the horse will be accepted into the program after the training is complete. They enjoy it so much they are willing to do all of that.

I haven't done much action photography, but I did do a soccer game. It was good practice. I got a few good photos from that.

This is sort of an action picture: shot with one hand and driving with the other. (Don't try this at home.)

That is a very good shot Kenzie. I like the fact that there is no blurring of the subject or background.

I was going to say the same thing. Very sharp photo for a one-handed moving shot. (Maybe a little bit of the Brett Favre gene in there). I get blurry photos when I'm standing still aiming carefully with 2 hands. I have a whole set labeled "blurry photos" in my Flickr, and I'm not talking Greta Garbo soft focus.

The train in the middle is the best part of the photo for me. I like all of the contrast and texture of the other components, too.

I did photoshop it a bit to add contrast and enhance the colours (I photoshop everything). As for the rest, well, ISO to 1600 and fire away. :)

I always Photoshop everything to some degree, too. But ISO 1600 on that photo? Wow, very low noise. I need a new camera. I still use a 6 year old Canon D60. I can't use anything beyond ISO 400. I want the Canon 5D Mark II so bad. And some more CF cards. And another lens or 2. And a bigger bag to put it all in. And....

I use a Nikon D40x. Just a cheap, entry-level DSLR. But fairly new (bought summer '07.)
And, yeah, it can be an expensive hobby. :(

I like that. I like the first version better, I don't know why, maybe because I saw it first. It makes me want to go there.

I'm waiting for a clear night, then I want to go out and take more night views around my area. I'll have to wait until we get some seasonal winds to clean out the haze from the air.
