    Harry,

    I like each of these for different reasons but #4 stands out for me. I like everything about that image. Well done!

    Thanks Gary
     
  7. This is a great series Harry. Excellent job on the shots, have to say though those chicks are pretty ulgy at that stage of life. The first shot is really a terrific shot.

  10. Excellent photographs, Harry! Looks like your background is somewhat more photogenic than the one at High Island...

    This is a real nice series Harry, you had a great vantage point to get these shots. Thanks for sharing.
     
  12. Great series Harry. I love the flight shots. Perfect exposures. Did you use matrix metereing? If so, did you dial -comp? Great work.

    Best,

    Jose
     
  13. Sweet! Just can't get any better than these!

    Thanks Lisa, he was real cooperative for that shot. He flew out of the enst and back 6 times in a row in the space of 15 minutes so it was pretty easy to predict his flight path and get a good angle.
     
  15. Excellent Harry!
