  • talking to other people in code? this was pretty popular back when i was in high school.. never got the hang of it though.. all those code talk got me confused.. :D great shot though.. :)

  • Like the angle of this shot. Great capture of these guys in action. Had a couple of friends who were ham operators. Always fascinated me. Excellent composition, like the antenna in the background.

  • nicely composed – especially with the black & red wires in the foreground.

  • Nice shot man.
    The lights in the rooms are a pure lesson in whitebalance. Looks so cool.
    What does it for me is the grain. Makes the whole thing look even more covert.

    Btw: nicest focal lenght ever.
