What, posting sarcastic comments or entering the competition again?

Probably both. Actually it reminds me of an airborne shot I got of a castle in Scotland just South of Galoot's stamping ground. I don't want to publish it because we were rather looking up at the castle.

Could you have been the pilot that I nearly downed with a golf ball

Senario............

Leven municiple golf course stands about 100ft above the beach, the 9th hole is a 125yd pitch to the green which is about another 50-60ft above the tee, hit ball with wedge, ball rises say another 75ft above green.... WHOOOOOOOOOOSH!!!!.........two RAF Tornadoes scream in from Largo bay at approx 250ft....I will never know if my ball went over or under because I had to close my eyes and cover my ears as the noise was horrendous, I'm sure it was pretty damn close though
Cheers

LBA is good for you, a Lens a day helps you work, rest and play.

You might have made a hole in one!

P.S. Just realised, yes, it's the bad jokes/sarcastic comments...

Definately not me. This was something much much slower. Mind you in the days before thr Shack was fitted with a Rad Alt, if you needed an accurate pressure setting for the pressure one, you descended untill you got the prop wash in the water and then set the Alt to 25'

I'm stuck.

I could enter an old one like the Cotswold one in my gallery, but that's on a Sony. I haven't got any Pentax/Samsung ones yet, and its dark all the time...
My own website is www.richardgaddphotography.com

Also on 500px

(Possible silly question coming up)

Does monochrome have to be black and white - or could it be for example red/white??

Awaiting someone's learned response

Monochrome means "one colour" and white, so read and white would be fine. In other words, toned pictures are included in monochrome. This would usually be sepia but could be blue, green or whatever other single colour you like. Selenium toning looks good as well.

Hope that clarifies it!
Best regards, John

Yes Dan, it was at a little bit low altitude. But if the rivals in the competition (like Lilly and others) follow uploading these quality images, I think next time I had to fly another few feet lower…


Best regards.

I have to make the following comment:

I am glad I am not judging this weeks competition. We are only Tuesday but what I have seen already has to make this the best competition yet......wow. A set of fantastic pictures. Monochrome (or B+W) is a great medium.

Agreed - best entry so far by a considerable distance!

I am somewhat surprised (and disappointed) at the number of 'photoshopped' entries, some are obvious but not mentioned, others are mentioned but not obvious (to me anyway).

is this competition for the 'final image' regardless of how achieved, or is it to be an image subjected only to minor post processing?

I ask because I can get some wonderful skies off the web to spice up some of my mundane photo's. or I can get some excellent grand canyon shots to go with my moody skies.

yours devils advocatly,
Please call me aj,

I use a Pentax K10D, on a MacBook with LightRoom (vers 1.3 + beta 2)
