Spinnaker in Fading Light

While visiting family in Vermont, I got a chance to photograph a Wednesday night regatta with a long lens I was borrowing from one of my brothers.  The 400mm lens was a blast to work with, since I really love the significant visual compression it lends to scenes.  For this one here, I shot with a very narrow aperture and slow shutter speed, while moving the lens a bit in order to end up with some in-camera motion blur.

Nikon D3, 400mm lens length, 1/5 sec., f14, ISO200.
