    They are all shitty, but criticism is more than welcome.

    thanks man. I really appreciate it. I didn't want to wake the guy. He looked like he really worked his ass off. (which I'm sure he did). There were a few others that were just resting around but didn't want to bother them.

    edit - that's also my favorite picture so far. They kicked ass, and were all super nice.

    If you have a backpack or something similar (bag, toddler, etc) drape it over the legs of the tripod. In wind I usually strap by backpack onto the tripod first and then put the camera on.

    Shame you didn't get lower to the ground and shoot horizontally. I think the framing would have been a bit nicer.
    Good idea on the shot though.
