Olá Hans,
Very good entry for the Friday Theme. Nice upward POV and great use of shallow DOF.
Excellent sharpness, nice soft colors.
That's is good.

Hi Hans

A nice addition to the in action Friday theme. Good sharpness & upward pov with amazing repetition of the flares. The slight motion blur of the rotor blades adds realism. Tfs!

Excellent Hans... Great timing and compo with a helpful crop to panoramic... This is what my eldest son wants to fly for the British Army Air Corps - he's really made this his goal!!! An impressive helicopter.

Hello Hans

Better late than never......

An amazing image, such a dramatic shot..high tariff, welldone. TFS

Stv :))

Hoi Hans,
Mooi aktie-plaatje !
Het is ook een prachtig apparaat, zo'n apache. Ik heb al eens zo'n computerspel gehad, en het viel bepaald niet mee om met zo'n ding te vliegen. Ondanks alle automatisering er in.

Goede capture met goede belichting. Mooie show.

Hi Hans,
A wonderful composition of this Apache emerging from these fireworks. Perfect timing and absolute correct exposure to present this activity in the air.
Very neat work in this panoramic frame.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Hans,
Excellent capture of the plane in action. Good sharpness & details. Well done.
Kind Regards,

Wow! Awesome contribution to Friday's theme and this Apache is in plenty of "in action" as indicated by the blurring of the rotor. Great pov and good dof with nice details even if it's cloudy. Very well done, tfs.

Hi Hans,
I just became interested in aero photography, and you, being great in it, offer me a lot to learn. Very interesting action photo with fantastic composition and proper exposure. The little blurred propellers give dynamism to the image, like the rockets and the "pose" of the helicopter, too. Excellent shot, bravo!
