I like them all very much, but the B-17 stands out for me. Love the view point and how it appears from the letterbox in the clouds. I wonder what it would do for the prop blur if you halved the shutter speed, that's always tough. If you have more, please bring it on!

Thanks Maarten

I take your point regarding the shutter speed and in retrospect I probably would have tried a slightly slower speed but rather as Maurice found, occasional forays into a different genre often find us wanting.

This was taken with my old D2Xs with an older 70-300 lens and although it has VR it is not as trustworthy as current models. I therefore considered 1/320 second about as slow as I wanted to go with an equivalent 450mm at full stretch.

I could cheat of course and use a touch of radial blur on the props but am happy with the sense of movement that I achieved.

Life is full of compromises!

Yes indeed. 

We have yet to find out the full details of the tragedy which occurred during fine weather on a beach with a very shallow slope. You have to walk out a long way at low tide to get up to waist level. I understand they were part of a large party of day visitors enjoying their day with hosts of others. So sad.


Still trying.
