Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Two Ships

Two from me, gone for something a bit different to the standard pair of fighters for my entries... :stuck_out_tongue: Not my sharpest image as it was a significant distance off the coast. I have a pairs shot of them much closer and in blue skies but I felt the water drop was more dynamic. https://i....

Re: Boris Force One?

I think it looks nice! Only change I'd make is to have ROYAL AIR FORCE in blue along the top, instead of UNITED KINGDOM.

Re: Military aircraft retirements

Whilst I haven't seen a formal announcement, I believe the Antonov An-2 of the Estonian Air Force has now been withdrawn from use as their new M28 Skytrucks have been delivered.

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Rotor Blur!

Some great entries well done! :clap_tone1: I was blown away by Nick's Osprey shot, and then he swapped it out! Also, mentions to Andy's Hind shot (apart from the cropped tail rotor :speak_no_evil:), Tommy's TH-500B and Mic's Sea King. But my winner, for both technical ability (full disks, wow), pict...

Taking a different approach to the last few competition topics (based on aircraft types). For the next 48 hours I want to see your best rotor blur images taken of helicopters!

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Phantoms

Can't upload the image I'd like to as don't have access to my primary PC currently. So here's one I had available on my dropbox. A boring static photograph, but a stunning scheme and happy memories from a great weekend at Wittmund.

Re: 48hr Photo Comp: Panning Shot

My entry is from a spotting trip to Istanbul Atatürk Airport in 2013. A slow shutter speed (1/25th) required as it was shot after the sun had set, rather than by choice!
