This is sooooooo cool!!!

Yo, can't you get a blue? Red doesn't do so well with those pasty complexions one gets in the Canuck winters up here :P

Does this mean I have to call you a photographer now?

J/K

Congrats on yet another ribbon! (even if it's red!)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/13/2007 12:01:46 AM
I just had to tell you that my son (who is 6) actually stopped me tonight and made me scroll back up to your image and he clicked on it!

"AWESOME!!!"

I on the other hand couldn't care less! ;0P

09/12/2007 06:56:44 AM

Very cool shot congrats on the ribbon!

Another red ;)
Congratulations Slippy. You should feel good m8. A ribbon for a great shot. You have a place in the books, just like Doc has, for most 4th place finishes.

09/11/2007 03:13:04 PM
Whoa!! Love the power displayed in this photo - the heat shimmer and the vapor build-up scream speed and power. Perfect choice for the challenge. Great photo. A 10. Good luck.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2007 04:33:19 PM
Without wanting to use expletives, this is f**k**g superb.
The vapor comming off the wings, the heat haze and the view up the engine nozzles just screams POWER!!!!
Spot on colours, great focus and good composition. 10+
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2007 02:54:05 PM
Very interesting effect - I like the way the silvery gray colors contrast so vibrantly with the glowing orange.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2007 01:30:18 PM
Great capture! Love the distortion from the heat of the afterburners
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2007 01:24:18 PM
Outstanding photo. 'Ya got the sound to go with it?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2007 09:16:53 AM
Tremendous. Absolutely nothing negative to comment - a very unique approach. I believe the distortion is from the hot air coming out of the exhaust. Perfect framing, color saturation, everything. Meets challenge perfectly. 10 from me.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2007 10:15:28 PM
Sweeeet shot!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2007 05:36:51 PM
This is an extraordinary image. First it fits the theme perfectly. Second, the vapor over the wings is perfectly caught, which is not easy. Third, the heat induced distortion powers up the image. And fourth, it's an uncommon jet so the subject is more interesting than "just another Blue Angel." I am an aviation enthusiast and know how hard it is to take extraordinary pictures of airplanes. This is superb!

They say no SciFi movie has ever won an academy award for best picture. And I say no airplane photo has ever won a blue ribbon at DPC. If ever there was one deserving, this is it. Best of luck!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2007 03:45:17 PM
Absolutely Amazing! What lens did you use on this? Was it at an air show? Crisp image, just fantastic.

Thats a very cool photo of a fighter jet.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/05/2007 02:27:41 AM
I think this is done legally but the uneven blur from the afterburners may throw some people for a loop, maybe see if you can get it validated. Good display of power. 9
