This was taken at Hampton Court Palace during their Christmas period. The Jester is fantastic, very funny and very clever. I snapped this from the far side of the court whilst standing on the corner stones of two pillars to gain a little extra height. This was mostly a victory for the new 70-200mm VRII Nikkor lens I bought myself for Christmas, but still a shot I’m very fond of!

    Great shot, excellently isolated by the limited depth of field. Head and shoulders (and torso, and thighs…) above the rest!

  • Hehe, cheers mark :)I have to agree that the dof really does make the image :)
