Happy Landings

By KKmoments
This was taken during the Regatta in Dover and was part of a parachute display carried out by The Tigers, who are part of the Princess of Wales Regiment.... an excellent display with only one landing slightly off target on the beach.

First time I've tried a shot like this and maybe i should've uploaded it for critique but i forgot so any comments to improve would be gratefully received even if you don't click Smile

Many thanks

Karen Smile

PS: I've had serious problems uploading this image and had to resize way below EPZ recommendations and its affected the quality.... is it me or has anyone else had problems?

WOW!! is all I can say to this Karen..what a wonderful capture. When I looked first at the thumbnail I thought the parachute was a caterpillar!! Superb in every way.

He fills the frame very nicely and I like the backlighting in the parachute.

Super shot...I find that the more editing I do the smaller I have to make it to go through. This is wonderfully done.
