More Cool Stuff !!

I know, blowing my own trumpet again !!

Never mind, someone has to.

Anyway, woke up this morning to see one of my images had made first place in DPR's Pool/Billiards challenge.

This image was shot quite a while back for a Pool bar promotion in Bangkok. People often ask me if it has been post processed to get the look. No, it is straight from camera. Just lucky.

That's why I have always titled it as 'Lucky Shot'.




  1. Nice shot Dave. I think you are entitled to a little self depreciation :)

    I can just see Kim choking on his porridge when he sees this :)

  2. Ralph, Hi.

    Thanks. It's one of my favourites.

    Not just because I like the shot, but also because I was so surprised how it came out. It was the first of several images taken, but the only one that worked.


  3. Congratulations Dave. I like the fact you kept the blurred hand at the top of the image - I think many photographers would have cropped it out.

  4. Kevin. Hi.

    Many thanks. I think the hand gives an anchor point, sort of.
