Super impressive entry. Congratulations on winning !!
Great idea for the entry. The challenge was full of varied subjects so I was not sure what was going to land in 1st place. I very much like this one! Congratulations on the win!!
Nicely won! Congrats!
Nice entry! Congratulations on the win!!
Congratulations, I was not quite sure if this should be left in the challenge since it's a model,. but I can't argue that it is a small plane. It's a beautiful photograph as well. congratulations for the win here.
alan900: It's a plastic model! That's allowed?
I contacted a couple of people about that because the intent was small planes that fly. I did not have any objections from the flying community so I did not DQ this photo.
Very cool catch!!
CreativeBug: This is cool!
It is cool, but the color makes this stand out above the rest since it is not a true b/w photo. This colorful version won't be in the final group when voting it goes to voting.
Birdman50: This leans more toward Sepia than BW on my monitor ...
you are correct. I've asked the owner to re-submit in b/w.
RuthC: Congratulations! This shot was submitted on 2nd November, 2015, but taken on 10th November, 2015!!! Amazing time travel!
maybe it will become B/W by the "taken" date :)
Very cool truck!! I used to think about bringing a corvette of mine to the salt flats, but wow, I can't imagine doing it in this! Thanks for entering. This is my favorite along with the 1st place entry.
A beauty, for sure and a great composition! congratulations on runner up!
A perfect example of what the challenge was about. This and the truck on the salt flats were my "favorites of the challenge" . Thanks for giving some info on HP and speed. That's just crazy!!!!!
Congratulations on the win as well!
They call me Hans: So far, mostly literal translations of the term 'balance'. Waiting for a use of it in photographic terms.
I was also hoping to see variety of that nature here.
JimW-203: This seems to be quite popular; it has filled up so quickly, would you consider extending its limit to something like 75? Have pity and give us slow oldsters a chance to get up to speed.
I will open it up a bit.
This is what everyone wants to find and shoot. So rare... and you got a great composition with the fleeting light. this is a great shot!
Congratulations. I love the color and sky. Forgive my late comment, I was away this past week, and missed seeing who won. Early in the voting this one was in the running for 1st place. And, it kept the placement. I thought the top 3 all were strong in different ways.
Buzz Lightyear: How small?
I probably should have left out the word small. The intent is to skip jet engine'd planes, and allow any prop-driven plane. I'm also increasing the limit form 50 to 65 because it looks popular based on submission count in the first 12 hours
Congratulations on the win. I think you had a lot of competition in this Challenge.
