Ben & Anna 8

Diagon Alley, Grant Park, Forres

A great opportunity for me to try out the little Fuji Xt-1 and 55-200mm lens at ISO 6400 of all things, in dappled sunlight. The results are surprisingly crisp, colourful and noise free despite the limited light levels. This was my favourite shots of the mini hill climb above Grant Park in Forres and it was largely down to timing.  The appearance of the two runners in the patchy sunlight between the trees.  Anna's hair swishing about behind her and the side by side stance ensured both were in sharp focus whilst the background quickly defocussed.  Running positions are good and a sense of place is conveyed with the slightly deeper view.
