nice photo! shame she isn't gripping the bow properly though - bad girl! if taught to shoot, she should know better...

the shooting line rule is not concrete. By GNAS standards (aka UK rules), you are allowed to stand forward of the shooting line aslong as you stay outside an angle of 45 degrees!

That's awesome that you play the sport! It is very funny that we did shoot it from about the same angle.

Congratulations on choosing this viewpoint. Nothing in the background to take your eye away from the archer.:clap:

Very excellent picture...well framed, the angle is sweet. I think a greater depth of field would have been nice to...then the hand would be in focus. Its great this way as well because you have highlighted the concentration on the face. But always do more than one approach..providing there was time...and with arrows whizzing around the room I don't think you had that much time :)
Nice job, Abby :rose:

Thanks so much for looking at the picture closely and critically. ya I thought that about her hand as well. I will look at my other archery pictures and see if I used a greater depth of field or not.

Thanks again! :)

I practised archery at university, I love that sport! I think it helps photography. Unfortunately, I didn't find any club here, where one would be provided with a bow.

I concentrate better and I can shoot at slow shutter speeds without a tripod - when I do so I feel pretty much the same as when I release the arrow, similar concentration of the muscles.

haha, the bad part is we weren't supposed to step in front of the line where shooters shot...I did a little but not too much..
