This is for the Nikon and Canon shooters.

1. visit the website link below.
2. name off as many lenses as you can.
3. extra credit for figuring out which body is attached to each.
4. tie breaker will be who can figure out how many people are in that picture.

This should be easy because the photographer has been nice enough to stitch together a 1,474 megapixel panorama for use in this test.

good luck!

Far left is a the Canon EF500mm f/4L with a Canon 5D body, the next one to the right of the is the Nikkor 500mm f/4G. That's all I got, pure guesses!

While you're figuring out that please answer this.

1,500,000 people and 6400 porta-cans.

Each can supports 10 people for one 40 hr work week before it becomes too foul to use (I'm in construction so I read that on them all the time!)

That means each will support 50 people for one 8 hr day.

6400 units times 50 = support for around 300 thousand people.

What did the other 1.2 million people do?

I'll answer rich, I didn't use the bathroom. We got there at 7:45am and left around 1pm not that long to hold it . I found myself in that picture but my head was down apparently looking at the LCD of the camera. See my head in the yellow circle.

How many snipers can you find?

Bakes,I'm shocked that there aren't any overwatch snipers. At something like that you'd think they'd pull out all the stops, especially since Obama has so many threats against him.

Either that or the SS/Military snipers are exceptionally well hidden.

There's some on the roof of the building in the middle of the picture (in the distance). Check the right side of the building.

Yeah, pretty sure these guys had guns.

Okay, so maybe I didn't look hard enough XD.

However, they (the guys on the balcony of the Capitol building) aren't exactly standing at the balcony and are in a static more, guardlike position. I guess to keep any potential attackers off of that balcony? Those guys all are just wearing big jackets with hoods. The one that looks like he has a helmet just has his hood lower than the others. They may have firearms, but they aren't using scoped rifles. None of them are standing as though they're supporting a rifle on themselves. Maybe they're just an overwatch team keeping an eye out for gunmen in the crowd/guarding the roof.

As for the building on the right, it looks like 3 guys to guard the rooftop, and maybe a sniper laying down watching the field. I see something on the right side of the Capitol that could be a rifle barrel as well, but its probably just part of the brick that's sitting there that clearly isn't original and is merely a replacement for that section of building.

However, now that I think about it, the fact that we don't "see" the snipers means that they are doing a very, very good job.
