    This is a wonderful photo. As I look through your collection I see that you have quite an eye. For some reason I usually love black and white photos but I dont' especially enjoy yours. Perhaps it is because your colour photos are so detailed and balanced.

    Thanks for the kind words... you know, its kinda funny, most people tell me my black and whites stand out far above my colour stuff... but to each his own, eh?

    Cheers, and thanks for looking!

    Great photos. When I shoot photos like this, the color never comes out right. What F-Stop and shutter speed were you shooting at.

    ISO 200 1/640 f/9.0

    I was shooting with a faster shutter speed as the chopper was just transitioning from hover to forward flight. I would've liked to be shooting at ISO 100 1/320 to blur the rotors a little more... something to keep in mind for next time!
