Watching the Plains Indian dancers has been the highlight of my Oklahoma State Fair visit and 2013 was no exception. Canon 70D body paired with a 100-400L, raws converted and cropped in CS6. Images © 2013 John Ferguson and may not be reused without prior authorization. E-mail inquiries.
a smile before she takes flight
was taking shots of the fancy dancer and by chance got this shot ... "this is how they learn"
When I saw this first photo with the 8-sided yellow sunstar I was stunned. Other lens are known to create a sunstar effect, but not the 100-400L. First time I have seen it and google didn't turn up anything. An omen from the healing power of the jingle dance.
