[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Grumman TBF Avenger (designated TBM for aircraft manufactured by General Motors) was a torpedo bomber developed initially for the United States Navy and Marine Corps, and eventually used by several air or naval arms around the world. It entered U.S. service in 1942, and first saw action during the Battle of Midway. Despite losing five of the six Avengers on its debut, it survived in service to become one of the outstanding torpedo bombers of World War II. Greatly modified after the war, it remained in use until the 1960s. (From Wikipedia) Taken from the ground during the 2011 Kingman Air Show in Kingman, Arizona.

Hi Eleu,
Another fine capture of this 'one time' aircraft from an attractive POV. I like the tilt towards us to show us the upper part of the vehicle. A nice action shot with the rotation of the propeller giving evidence of this.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Eleu,
Nice capture- with a slightly tilted body, giving the viewer a sense of moving. The rotation of the props enhance the feeling. Well composed, good notes as always. TFS Julie

Another powerful closeup capture from an aircraft in-flight, Eleu!
Amazing results and perfect focus with nice color contrast to the sky.
The light and exposure are well handled as well.

Nicely done!

Kind regards,

I am still amazed by your focus and sharpness in these shots...you have the best panning technique I have ever seen. Nice work.
