On Readers' Showcase: Luis dos Santos article (49 comments in total)

Nice work. I think they should be regarded as the photographer's own work because it's not so easy to photograph such subjects with such angles, or without people.

That is really nice. Well planned & captured. The sky is such a nice colour too with a beautiful gradient from top to bottom. Top stuff

shutterbobby: Really inspiring..would like to see Stonehenge with some star trails,etc... if you ever go down south...

A friend of mine went recently and he said it has a 10ft high security fence all round. Also, the public is no longer able to go near the stones like in the old days. I guess they do need protection, but he thought it was a bit over the top. The visitor centre is also miles away and visitors are bussed to the site from there.

cgarrard: That F-15 shot is ridiculous Stephen :). Enjoyed all the others of course, but I have a weak spot for the F15 demonstrations. I watched Chuck Yeager fly an F15 at March AFB when I was a kid, and I've been hooked since.

Thanks. I was very pleased to get that one. Just hearing them approaching through the valley sets the pulse racing. Sometimes it's a good idea to put the camera down & just watch.

Thanks. I have considered that, but with all the new restrictions it would be a challenge these days.

Rodger Kingston: Terrific post, Stephen! You should name your longest lens "Hubble."

Thanks Rodger. Maybe I should do that!

john Clinch: Great pictures. The UK is not an easy base for an astrophotgrapher

Thanks, it certainly isn't. That is why I chose to go to Tenerife for the meteors. I have many failures, but the successful ones make up for it.

MDRCHINA: Stephen--so many great shots herein--can you please tell us how you captured that F-15? That shot is "off the rocks"!! Thank you DP Review.

Thanks very much MDRCHINA & camcom12. The F-15 was shot 500ft up a mountain in Wales. Part of the Mach Loop low fly zone.

Paul Farace: I know this is like a non-driver criticizing the color of a Rolls Royce's hubcaps, but how many of you Nikon fans think the display screen on the back is a bit small? Beautiful camera though...

Yes, it's an optical illusion. It does look, however, like there would have been enough space to squeeze in a bigger screen though. 3.5" ??
