Re: 48 Hours Photo Comp: Autumn conditions

Re: Japan 2020

Lovely set! Spotting in Japan is something else... Not just taking pics, as you mentioned - local spotters are very friendly and curious - language is not a problem, just showing them your pics make them very happy :) I spent 2 days in Gifu, making instant friends with local guys, no matter that onl...

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Monochrome

I don't think we'll run out of topics anytime soon. I guess every person entering the competition is somehow hoping for the win and has future topic already in mind ;)
Some topics have less entries indeed, but still - over 20 replies is not bad at all. Quite a range to pick from.

Re: 48 Hour Photo Comp: Monochrome

My 2p: Keep the format as it is, no need to exclude moderators, and keep it that the thread starter chooses to winner. It’s their subject, so should be there I to choose the winner. +1! As of monthly voting - sounds like a great idea! And then TOP 12 go to Pic of the Year vote - how about that? :)

Re: 48hr Photo Comp - RAF Harrier

The only one I have is the one from our Polish Aviation Museum in Krakow (I live 10min walk from this amazing place). It has really interesting history: The Harrier GR.3 number XW 919 first flew on 23rd July 1971 and was subsequently delivered to no. 1 Squadron RAF in September 1971. It was while on...

Re: Tallboy Bomb Found & Detonated in Poland

Primary plan was to burn it slowly without explosion (I don't know the term for this - deflagration maybe?) but the main operation commander said it was 50/50 - it will work or it will blow up. So all was prepared for the explosion hoping for safer option.
Anyway - spectacular view!
