How did I take such a great pic of Raptor?

I just can't stop staring at this picture: http://www.angelfire.com/mt/cedar2/images/tripraptorclose2.jpg

I took it in 1999, but is still my favorite. What do you think?

#1 coaster fan, with Angelfire you need to copy and paste the address. That will connect you.

I used my Kodak Advantix F600. It's not the best camera, but it takes nice pictures. I was extremly lucky getting the picture as the camera was on auto-picture, where it takes the pic "when it's ready". I only recently found out how to take that off, hehe. I'm going to CP and SFWOA again soon (see signature for further details) so I'm going to take a ton more pictures AND attempt the same exact picture, just for fun. Let's see how it comes out
:)

kRaXLeRidAh, before you start criticizing it, how about you go take a picture exactly like it, and show us how much better it is! I doubt you could get a picture of Raptor that is that cool looking.

Very nice pictures indeed :) Raptor (among many other coasters) seems to be very "photogenic".

I'll see what I can come up with when I go there SOON (see signature :))

As for what kRaXLeRidAh, I guess I can't please everyone...but that doesn't bother me, I'll keep trying ;)

goodness."



Look, I can understand you are trying to be some kind of hero of this thread. But again, if you ask for people's opinions, you will get one. This Raptor picture thread was asking for opinions and thoughts. It's not even like I said it was the worst thing I've ever seen. I said it wasn't that good. Seeing how it was being called the greatest shot of Raptor ever.

Hey, thanks for putting words in my mouth. I did NOT say it was the greatest picture of Raptor, ever. I'm not that full of myself. I said it was a great picture of Raptor, but not the greatest.

Would you rather the post to have read "How did I take such a crappy pic of Raptor?" I was trying to grab attention, as it was hard to do with just a picture for a thread.
