Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Spanish Bombers

Post by vmd »

Hi All,

While driving through Catalunya, I accidently came across a Bomber post. They are, according to the pilot I spoke, 24hr a day on duty, to prevent fire in the dry periods. SeeUall.

:twisted: :mrgreen: :-p:

But at times the work of these "Bomberos" is much more dangerous than just tossing iron on some sandy patch of land...

Yep, they're doing an honorable job, risking their lives in preventing destruction rather than causing it. :wink:

Hmmm... I find these photos... fascinating. :mrgreen:
Technically well done, original and balanced compositions. I am, however, not a fan of the dark halos or the abundance of wide angle. Just an opinion!

Thx4sharing,
Erik

Agreed with key regarding the vignetting. On many it is too strong but the final shot has it very nice - could do with a bit more exposure though. Great shooting of an unusual subject though!
