Not often you get a top view of a helicopter
Great image Bob
You need a little movment in the blades..
It looks like it is falling out of the sky...
It's an exciting angle and nice and simple arrangement. I agree with Dave that it seems to be plummeting and some rotor movement would arrest that. Perhaps a slower shutter speed and pan with it a little? Of course that was probably not possible at the time and we viewers can rarely appreciate the difficulty in getting these shots!
Fair point about the rotor blades. Too fast a shutter speed. It's a matter really of getting the shutter speed fast enough to freeze the aircraft but slow enough to have some sign of movement in the rotors/Props.Gonna try about 1/400- 1/500 next time. Panning's OK with a fixed wing aircraft, you can anticipate it's line, but with a helo, turning on it's own axis, its more difficult. Thanks for the input folks. Much appreciated, as are the votes
