Ah well, another afternoon spent not quite getting the shot I wanted (but still learning a lot in the process). This one almost counts as a happy accident along the way. I used the 14-45mm kit lens, Raynox 250 macro converter and Metz 50 TTL flash in second curtain snyc. The red streak is from the LED in the Combi TF receiver that I used to trigger the shot. Manual pre-focus was used (a pencil standing in for the ball at the point I wanted to catch it in the frame). As you cannot employ burst mode when using flash (even if you want to) hand firing via the Combi was the only way to get this shot - I was lucky enough to suceed after only three attempts.
