    So sorry - won't be competing - couldn't compete with Cleav's GIF in any event, but not in the action photo frame of mind this AM. My apologies.

    Hopefully I will be able to post-process the gif I recorded yesterday small enough for uploading, but given @Cleav's entry I dont know that there's much point...and it certainly isnt worth it that I can hardly walk today after all the takes.

    OK. This is my first time in gif creation and editing and the 2MB upload limit was a challenge in itself. Not at all worth it given the result, but too much effort (and pain) expended not to post. Oh, and I had planned these merely as a test and was going to do it all again today in jacket and tie, but no bueno on the pistols today!

    For the level of difficulty [​IMG] I just tried it and my knees almost gave in.

    Lol this thread.

    The best part of the Cleav gif is the rustling leaves on the trees. Super cool.

    Awesome SeaJen :slayer: On two counts actually, it's one thing doing the pics, quite another getting the GIF machine to work. My head hurts still now! Duchess just text me- "Would spacehop boy like dindins at the big table tonight or in his high chair"?!!! EDIT: @Holdfast I swear it follows me round the room! excellent :slayer:

    Hmm, are old shots also allowed? I don't have time to do one but have an old one that would be perfect.

    Well, if the thread is going to have spacehoppers, it might as well have space knights too. [​IMG]

    I was actually surprised how well the lightsaber's glow photographed; I expected it to look washed out. Funnily enough, the pose also shows off the good fit of the clothes much better than most normal pics can do; I guess it's because everything's under more tension in that kind of pose so if it didn't fit right it would look really wonky. Impressive. Most impressive.

    If anyone wants me to make them a GIF, send me the pics via PM.

    Be happy to stitch them together. I did this for stitches one. (No pun intended)

    It's allowed, but frowned upon ;)
