This one reason why I went digital. I could check immediately if I had got the result of the fuse spark and the flash of powder exiting the barrel.
The problem is getting the timing spot on and of course there is no noise as light is faster than sound,the powder fuse is also critical. a few grains to much and the match has to be hot enough . the picture could do with a sharpen but on a floating object which moves with the explosion.
on tis occasion we fired several times and only one got the effect wanted

    Technically well done and an interesting photograph even without the notes.

    Great shot.
In happier times, I'd have worried about the dangers of working with gunpowder, but now I just think that's a disturbingly large group of people.
My success rate with action shots increased greatly when I discovered the high speed multi-shot mode on my camera - 10 pics, 1/13 second apart. I pretty much leave my camera in that mode all the time now.

    Well done - you captured the shot at just the right moment, and managed to keep excellent detail in the rest of the photo.

    I agree, it's very hard to get the timing just right. But if you do get it the result is spectacular.

    Yes, definitely a huge advantage of digital! Great timing, your efforts paid off. I wish the metal railing wasn't there.

    Glad you were able to nail one eventually. What was the occasion? I trust that the invaders were successfully repelled.

    Like a a scene from a movie, wish I was there.

    this was a shot in a sequence of thirty frame's and the Master Gunner did a good job on the powder. the flash is actually nearly over in front of the muzzle. it would have reached another 3 feet at first part of the flash ejecting from the barrel.
