3D picture tennis of Australian open 2015 Men’s FINAL: Novak Djokovic vs Andy Murray

3D acrobatics on the court: you can see their advanced anticipation, reflex, and body movements in 3d.

It is funny how you can, most of the time, predict how a point will end by just looking at their body movements in 3D.

NIKON 1 fast and completely silent continuous shots & 400fps video samples, australian open

the nikon 1 series are great for taking fast continuous and completely SILENT pictures of action scene: other cameras, including my A7 is too LOUD to take 15FPS. Even my canon 7d dslr is still too loud, too slow for those action scenes.

The shutter sound on my a7 is So LOUD that i cannot take pictures during play, especially when we are sitting so close to the court. I got stares from everyone first time i tried it. Sony A7 is supposed to me mirroless like nikon 1, but the shutter sounds is even louder than a DSLR

Taken with nikon 1 J3: 30-100mm, not photoshopped , full format: click on picture to see full resolution

australian open: we were able to get confirmed guaranteed lower level seats for last week of the tournament, as we are australian open match members. We sat on the first row on the women final, 4rd row on man finals.  (side advantage: first dip at tickets, and since they are in so much demand…. Especially on secondary market.. )

there are 3 level of memberships. Game, set, and match. Each cost from $99 to $249 for the whole year. To pay $249 per year to have access to lower level seats? Worth it! (Especially like i said, the tickets are “popular and on demand”.

How to get match membership? you have to be lucky and hope someone on that list drop out. there is a long waiting list for thr match membership.

our upgraded suite (for free as we used the confirmed upgrade certificates): booked the cheapest room, ended up having similar suite as stanislas wawrinka group.  I think for us, The best suite there have a fireplace, view of cathedral. It makes you feel as if you are home.

as a side perks with suites: (free): access to the lounge:  free breakfast, free drinks, free pre dinner snaks. A lot of tennis players and their entourage are seen here quite often. (Even if they are multi- millionaire).The staff at the lounge are very friendly, they remembered us even if we come back and stay there only once a year.

Australian open final: we met stanislas wawrinka at the park hyatt melbourne hotel the night before his historic final macth with nadal?!!

We were able to take pictures with him, his entourage took the pictures for us. Nice man, very skinny outside, very muscular as well. i wish him good luck, and he just lift his shoulders and just said thank you… as if he did not think the chances of winning are on his side, or luck is not part of it.

DSC00469

As it turns out, at the final match, talent played a major part, but a very small part of luck also came into play:  Nadal was slightly injured.

Wawrinka has a tattoo on his left forearm: ” Ever tried. Ever fail. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”

They say the key to success is hard work and determination. But also, Success require failure, and also a little of luck.

What is luck? Luck is to be there at the right time, right moment, with the right preparation. Luck require preparation. Proper Preparation require previous learning, previous failures.
