***MC 290*** In Mid Air

Thank you Rich, for choosing my entry as the winner for the last Mini Challenge (#289).

This challenge is in mid air. It might be a photo from an air show, a hovering humming bird, a dog catching a frisbee or perhaps something related to weather.  Draw upon your creativity as you search your library to choose your entires. Maybe it involves sports or entertainment? Let’s have fun and comment often.

Rules:

1) Enter up to 3 photos from any camera taken at any time. Let us know about equipment, settings and processing if you like. A good title and perhaps a line or two about where and why (the story) of the image adds to our enjoyment.

2) The winner chooses the next mini challenge theme and selects the next winner and so on. . .

3) Please post your entries by replying to this original post rather than under someone else’s post - and change the subject line to the title(s) of your images or something like that to separate your picture posts from comments that someone may make about your post.

4) As usual, exhibition entries are welcome, if you have interesting images to share beyond your three entries, or should you feel you are not able to host the challenge in the event that you win.

5) All entrants should check the results of the challenge and be ready to jump in with the next competition if they are the winner.

6) PLEASE feel free to make as many comments as possible. This adds to the fun and keeps people coming back. Lets make this a record number of entries.

7) The contest begins now and ends Sunday, January 27th at 8pm EST.

Samples to follow.

Some very, very nice shots! I didn't think of the fireworks, good idea.

Like you, I have thousands of aerial shots; hard to pick some favorites.

Thanks. I just realized that even cloud picture can fit in this topic. When I tried to add it I already passed 15min editing time.

Great kick off Marti. Very sharp and the framing is nice too.

The white edges of the wings make this picture so dramatic. Nice capture busch!

Re: I got too many (exb)

I'd love to hear how you were able to capture the beautiful moon and eagle shot. I would have guessed that 400mm would not have been enough for that?

Also, the other eagle shot - as the eagle stares into the photo, is amazing!  Thanks for sharing.

Re: Fat Albert & Other Big Flyers----Exhibition

Stephen, what does it sound like when Fat Albert kicks in the extra power?

Also, one of the birds almost looks like a shadow compared to the other one. Nice capture!

Tobers,

Indeed, fine examples of "in mid air." Outstanding! - and, it motivates me to want to learn more about how you achieved such results.

Did you happen to shoot shutter priority to capture the girl in mid air?
