Just kidding.
I got a few shots in of this T28 Trojan taking off at Ardmore.
The one before this had a line of trees behind, not all that inspiring.
The one after this was absolutely side on with the undercarriage almost retracted, even less inspiring.
This angle was the most dynamic, but begged for a better background.
This reminds me of a topdresser taking off from a farmers airstrip.
The exif data is that of the background shot.
The aircraft, ISO 200, F16, 1/250 sec shutter priority, EV -1/3 stop.

Hi Peter, nice shot and excellent P.P work, the B.G is awsome. Where as the plane looks stunning with perfect blured props. The POV is also good. Thanks for sharing.

Saw such kinda shot after a quite long time.

Hi Peter

I like the motion blur of the propellers here. Good sharpness elsewhere with attractive pastel colours. Tfs!

Hi Peter,
A great shot of this plane taking off beyond this lovely greenery.
A nice rotation movement of the propeller and the exceptionally sharp presentation.
Very dramatic sky and perfect light management.
Very neat work.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Nicer action shot with good sharpness and colour. The motion of the prop is well captured

Hi Peter...excellent post processing...great work...


Hi Peter, the plane blends in really well with the bg,I like the rolling hills and the shadows from the clouds. Fiona
