Strike a pose

By javam    
Plenty of different aircraft today at Fairford that I could upload pictures of, but this was one of the first images to catch my eye on the first SD card I download to my computer and time is tight to fit an upload in today, so I thought why not.

Maybe not quite as dynamic as the previous 2 wingwalker shots I upload from Duxford and the sky is a bit flat, but I was really pleased with how sharp this one came out and the fact that you could make out her face clearly for a change.

As you say Neil, impressively sharp and also very well exposed too. Personally I think there's enough sense of motion in the shot from the blurred prop and smoke trail to stop this being too static an image. I like this one very much.

Thanks for the comments and thanks for the HC Pete. My ratio of HC's to wingwalker uploads is several orders of magnitude greater than anything else, beginning to think I have found my niche Wink

Todays upload will be a fast jet to mix things up a little.
