To me, the wing blur, is an essential part of the image

Whether achieved by luck or judgement, doesn't really matterWink

It is thereTongue

I've never been satisfied with my in-flight Puffin shots. They move so fast but I think you captured this one beautifully, Geoffrey!

This is a great inflight photo Geoffrey, IMHO the blur works very well. I have taken in flight photos were the winds at e sharp and it looks like the bird is just hanging in the air.

You would also need speed of 1600 upward to get them sharp

18 Mar 2013 10:15PM
Great shot. I think the amount of blur is about right

OMG can't believe I've got POTW, I had to check it twice before I believed it Smile
Thank you so much Pete and everyone who voted and commented on my photo.

This is my second POTW, I won one years ago but never claimed my canvas print but this time I will claim my prize, I've joined a camera club and could do with some 16" x 12" printed photos to enter in the competitions, I currently only enter digital images so this voucher is just what I needed, I'm absolutely thrilled Smile

Thanks everyone Smile

Thanks Alan,
Pyle and Porthcawl camera club mate, there are better photographers than me there I can assure you although I did come 3rd in a recent portfolio competition.
I just plod on and am learning new things all the time, hopefully it will help me with different types of photography, it's fun.
