A: Do you know?

The paintball is not supposed to burst until it hits it's target but this one did. What a mess that makes.

Thank you so much for the spotlight James!

    I will check out the data on my computer at the studio Dawn and get that info to you. I think I was at about f/5 and 1/3200th second. My ISO would have been 800 but I will double check.

    Two exceptional! Timing is such a part of this. I look at our cameras as mechanical 'eyes', mimicking the brilliance of The Master, but in no way able to capture the wonder of His Creation. Through a glass darkly. Freezing an instant of time, for all of man's eternity. Maranatha, (Jesus Comes).
