I think this makes the second time we've agreed on something! I loathe watermarks and signatures on any photo.

The bar for going away shots has always been quite high here.

I'm going to guess that a reverse wedgie isn't going to be in their 'unique' exception list.

Glad everyone that went seemed to enjoy the events. Perhaps these types of ventures will help to assure some more running time for the large engines.

I agree with Bob and I would also include the shot needs some perspective distortion correction.

Not at all. Most standard shots on here are easy enough to make a decision on whether or not to click it from the thumbnail. The aerials / distant / etc. ones usually require a click to full size. ...

May as well flew to the fire department and shot them pulling back into the bays. It's that over. :D

How far from the CW are you now? I know a guy 2 hours from there who can help.

All three are not single exposures, hence why I posted them. You can't tell the difference right? :D

The water in the artistic world can be very muddy at times.

It's relatively easy to do. The majority of the scene is from the long exposure (the water, sky, trees, etc.) The only thing blended in from the second image was the train. You can achieve the...

I think the scene and story happened previous to the photo, and as it stands it's a clickbait attempt for views. The shadows are distracting even though they are not on the 'subject'.
