A C-130Q on a fire bombing demo.  There was also an Avro RJ-85 (converted BAe 146) doing a demo.  13000 litres dumped in 2 secs.

Photography Technique / Re: What is your keeper rate?
« on: February 23, 2015, 02:20:38 PM »
It depends on your definition of keeper.  I'll probably end up using about 10%-15% of shots for social media, sporting clubs etc but competition worthy shots it's less than 1%.

Hi Stahlhelms.
Very nice shots, Mustangs are such... Is it wrong to call an instrument of death beautiful. Aesthetically pleasing aircraft. Is the third shot a T6 Texan? My freind and I were taking long exposures of a small waterfall at a local beach 2 weekends ago and we were quite literally buzzed by what I believe was the aircraft type in your picture, I say buzzed as he was low and shifting, no time from first hearing it to passed by and behind the clif to grab a shot, but it made both our day to see it.
Area was at Brook, Isle of Wight, southern England.

Cheers, Graham.



You're correct Graham.  The T6 Texan was also known as the Harvard in Commonwealth countries and the Australian made Wirraway is also related to it.  The planes in the attached pic are the Harvards/Texans of the Southern Knights Formation Aerobatics team.

Cheers

Phil

Love that Viper shot Marc :)

Ah-ha, now I know what it's for !

But do we have to speak with an Austraaali'n accent to get the best out of it ? I guess eml will find out  ;)

That's a fair assessment Sporgon, but, after 26 years living in Jakarta & Singapore it's been a revelation on returning to Brisbane Australia to find, I really no longer speak the language, after 6 months back here I'm still left looking like a stranded fish when confronted with the local Aussie Strine.

Hopefully the 5DsR Menu system will be in "proper" English   ;)

You just need to finish every sentence with 'hey" and you'll be back in the swing of things in BrisVegas  ;D

Most of my slow shutter shots are done at between 1/30th to 1/60th of a sec.  The steeplechase water jump is always guaranteed to provide some action.  In the second one I pulled down the contrast clarity and saturation looking for a painted type effect.

A little boring at the local cricket on Saturday so I got this magpie-lark  (known as a mudlark here).  Shot with the 5D3 and Tammy 150-600 @ 600

I get what you mean ie not panning shots as such but just capturing the motion blur of the subject.  I tried it recently at a tennis tournament but the keeper rate isn't very high.  The second shot is a panning shot which I'm more used to:)

Lenses / Re: Purple fringing of 85 1.2ii

Damn this thread!!  I watched Citizen Kane on DVD tonight and for the first time I was distracted by the purple fringing in a lot of scenes!  How the hell you get purple fringing in a black and white movie I don't know but I do know it wasn't shot with a Canon 85 1.2 ;D
