My concept was to show Malaysian top sprinters Watson Nyambek (right) and G.Shanthi's expolsive start in preparation for the 1998 Commonwealth Games in Malaysia. *** After virtually "begging" with their coach, I was allowed two chances to get the shot, I rest the digital camera on the track for a really low angle view. *** When I said "go!" they disappeared before I can even hit the shutter! *** Dang! *** I wish I had my faithful F3P with me that I can removed the prism for a low low view! *** Second time round I fired the camera continuously before I told them to shoot off. *** I was really not sure if I had caught the moment, their coach threw me out of the stadium when I request to do it again! *** Its hard to be a photojournalist sometimes :-) **** Look at their stance! You would thought that they will fall flat on their face! *** Since I was using a super wide, I was only inches from Watson; I have to be very careful not to get tramped on! © C.Y.Leow ****** Footnote: Please take into consideration that this picture was taken with a two mega pixel camera that do not response very well to backlight and high ISO (ASA) setting. At that time, this was the best digital camera and at US$16,000.00 for the camera body, it WAS the best.
