I have worked in a technical support role for several industries and love the problem-solving aspects of my work as well as helping clients maximize their productivity.

A life-long curiosity drives my interests ranging from creative writing, photo-editing, music, problem-solving puzzles such as sudoku, cooking and baking, all types of crafting, sewing and yarn arts, creative resources on the internet and learning new apps for my favorite toy...my iPhone.

Where is your own research? There are many idiomatic phrases having to do with confessions and the act of making someone confess.

And let's not forget the "wise guy" that is another name for a mob thug.

comment what does “ Plant Your arse” mean?
Isn't "arse" BrE, @FumbleFingers? I suspect that "Plant your ass" might be used in the US...where, I'm not sure.

comment so mainstream or too mainstream
That depends on context. "so mainstream" is more idiomatic and is ambiguous whether it is good or bad but "too mainstream" conveys a negative connotation.

Your answer sounds right but your link describes and depicts something quite different than what the OP asked for. The picture in your link shows a single background and multiple images of a skier (or snowboarder) splayed across that single background. The OP's question is asking for the technique where multiple pictures are taken "with the hope of catching the right instant, or to get the best focus"

The thing that skews the examples for me, and IMO, make them all the more difficult to separate temporaneously, are the openings. When I am asked "Did you hear" or "Have you heard", that is very idiomatic of something that has just occurred. If you remove those from the sentences, it is easier to see that #'s 2, 3 and 5 have an immediacy to them. Hope that helps! Rough crowd today! :-)
