This photo makes me cringe but at the same time it is breathtaking with all the little lens shards radiating out! Looks like a rocket. Fantastic shot, and so creative!

I setup a black tarp for the background on a summers day on my parents farm. My brother on camera left was about 20' away on a shooters bench with a 22 rifle. I was about 15' with my 70-200mm f2.8. We took practice shots with a coke can but no luck - I wasn't seeing anything in the viewfinder.

On the final attempt we balanced the lens on a shell casing and did the 3,2,1 count down as before but i accidently squeezed early and he squeezed late, to my surprise we got the shot, a very "lucky shot".
