first look makes you think the jet is moving, but a closer look at the nose clarifies. If the jet was moving, the numbers 2,4 reflected in the jet will have motion blur which they don't. That says motion blur was added in photoshop.

Congratulations on your 5th placing with this great shot!

Beautiful shot. Of course, if the plane had been landing, it had just completely run out of runway. Great work with PS though.

10/18/2005 01:37:12 PM
to read the runway indent of 24 the plane must be facing the opp direction. no?

BAe 146?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2005 12:49:12 PM
nice motion effect! I hope he's got good brakes or is about to liftoff because there's only a few feet of runway left to go!!

I don't know how you did it, but it is very nice!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/18/2005 01:09:49 AM
I'm stunned at this shot. It's beautiful. I'm guessing that you did a motion blur to make it look like the plane was moving....Or maybe I'm wrong...anyway, 10 from me. I want it framed in my living room.

10/17/2005 02:02:11 PM
Did you delete your reflection out of the picture? Was the plane sitting still when you took the picture then you Photoshopped all the blurs? This is really good. One of the better shots in the challenge. It's in my top four...10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2005 01:55:16 PM
This is the best of the movement images in the challenge. I love the still reflection of the number 24 on the nose cone. And the bit of blue in the upper corner is good since it makes this a bit less symetrical.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2005 01:46:08 PM
Whoa, this is just incredible! Hope you weren't running backwards in front of it to capture the shot! 10

I really wish they had a "Great Shots That Don't Fit In Any Challenge" challenge every week. This is a super capture, but I don't get any feel that you utilized the wide angle for this. I'm going to defy The Challenge Police and give you a 6 because I think it's so neat.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2005 08:52:41 AM
cool
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2005 06:24:58 AM
I'm guessing you zoomed as the plane was moving. Whatever you did you did it very, very well. This is a very balanced, and dynamic shot. The viwer's attention goes straight to the middle and doesn't want to leave. Congratulations.
