What skills do I need to be a good scrummaster?

Based on my experiences, my list would go like this -

Have empathy. This is the most important. Learn continuously. This is the second most important. Apart from these, you need
  • Understanding of the organization and its culture
  • Understanding of the team and its dynamics
  • Understanding of the people on the team
  • Facilitation skills
  • Conflict resolution skills
  • Ability to work with people
  • Ability to coordinate with teams
  • Ability to work with management
  • Ability to solve problems and get things done
What does you list look like?

This comment has nothing to do with your post :). Sorry !

I was looking at some of your photos at flickr and noticed the quantization effect(the circular region) around the focus(vulture) in the photo with the vulture in the sky. Is there something you can do without post processing the image to avoid that effect ?

Yeah that happens sometimes when shooting 8bits per pixel instead of 16bpp. The thing to do is to increase the colour depth.
