Very nice capture.

To be fair, considering the way a helicopter shakes about on the ground, rotors running, its virtually impossible to get a pristine sharp shot, more so on a long exposure.

I am fully aware of the difficulties involved.

FOTO4 I agree, even though the original is somewhat sharper but not pin sharp.

This was the first photo after start up and I didnt have a cable release with me, I was trying to keep the ISO as low as possible so was limited to a 30 second exposure tops which meant it was also a smaller depth of field.

I think the long exposure, helicopter movement, wind on the camera and tripod (it was blowing a gale) always meant it wasn't going to be pin sharp, but it doea look like its also lost some quality during the resizing/save for web process.

I am surprised that it is as sharp as it is with a 30s exposure, I think I would have wound up the ISO and suffered a bit of quality reduction, allthough saying that anyone can be wiser after the event. Nevertheless I think you need congratulating for what is an extremely good capture.
The second stationary image is very good.
