Brilliant set - the rotor blur is outstanding! What shutter speed were you using for those??

Checked the exif, and the full-disc shots are 1/25 & 1/30. This guy could teach a lot of pro air-to-air photographers how to do it properly. They're stunning!

Dont shoot me for this, but I think the slow shutter speed works to the detriment of some of these pics, the last 2 especially, I just dont like full discs on helo's

Me too. I couldn't do rotor blur to save myself, and there are some nice shots there, so kudos for getting it. I find it doesn't work as well for side on shots though.

Hi guys,
thank you for all comments.
I am not rotor blur maniac - sometimes it is not worth to try - as full disc will not make any difference. But in the other hand when I have totally non-interesting background(like on last picture) - nice rotor blur is the only chance to make picutre more interesting. It is all about your skills and risk that you want to take...

Bartek once again shows us why he is king of low shutter speeds :smile:
