It looks like you were flying beside it.

a great shot of this fast bird, Marcus.

Such a wonderful shot. The blue plane against the blue sky makes a great image.

Faster than a speeding bullet (train),
More powerful than a steaming locomotive,
LOOK! Up in the Sky!
It's a Bird! (click, click)
It's a Plane! (click)

...what? That's it. it's a plane. :P

Great shot Marcus! Leave it to you to shoot the ONLY female pilot on the team! :)

Hi Marcus,
A different kind of bird for you this time!
Excellent image!
I would be interested, like Mehul, where were you when you took this one? It sure looks like one of those shots that was taken from a plane right beside this one. If not, how did you make it look that way?


Michael Fox Michael Fox   {K:3180} 10/11/2007
Marcus -- Great capture! Just as crip and well presented as the other birds you shoot. Well done.


Arthur Kornienko   {K:9686} 10/11/2007
I guess it would be tough against a blue sky, glad to hear in the other forum that your new copy of 40D is working out better than the first, but seems a bit harder to get what you want. Imagine, if you have to work harder, what it would be like for the rest of us. I can't comment on each of your BIF shots, because it would get boring and repetitive, but I'll sum it up here, they are all out of this world and among the best to be seen, simply great work, nice to view. Best regards, Art.

Great shot Marcus. I was down there shooting the Angels as well :)


Alessandro Capelli Alessandro Capelli   {K:34796} 10/10/2007

I suspect these guys are a bit faster than your normal posts Marcus....super action stop excellent detail & DOF....Go check out my metal bird!!!!


Bill Telzerow   {K:4993} 10/9/2007
Not much to say about this Bird...Very, very nice. I agree, not often when you can get a "background". Thumbs-Up.




Robert Chin   {K:22282} 10/9/2007
A bird is a bird!!
Nice shot Marcus,love the angle you shot this from to give a different perspective.
Well frozen capture.
Take care


Pawel Kwasnicki Pawel Kwasnicki   {K:9651} 10/9/2007
another lovely bird, Marcus! great detail and colors! I live close to a military air-base and have those birds over my house two times per day- lovely machines! BUT very noisy! best regards, Pawel


Hesham Abouzekry   {K:15927} 10/8/2007
more of wonderful shot.
nice composition.
still waiting your valuable comment for my last pic. thanx in advance.


Saeed Al Shamsi Saeed Al Shamsi   {K:47735} 10/8/2007
This is a beautiful F/A-18 Hornet "bird" capture, am not sure which one is the most difficult to capture the real or this one :)
Thanks for asking,, passed months were the busiest for me, now back to normal life.,


Yamil Saenz Yamil Saenz   {K:12434} 10/8/2007
Awesome shot Marcus,
Did you take this picture from another plane?
I agree with Dave, this background is a more interesting option.
I bet you this "Metal Birds" are a lot easier to shot than your usual hawks.


Dave Stacey Dave Stacey   {K:150877} 10/8/2007
Great inflight shot of this bird, Marcus! I like the background, too, which makes it a little more interesting than the standard blue sky shots. Almost looks like you took it from another plane in the formation.

For a change, huh ? :)

Cheers !
