Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Probably less than scrambling a couple of Eurofighters that are on hot standby.

I'd be really interested in getting a Hi-Res of this on canvas if that is possible? I just know my dad would love it. I'd love to have a play around on a close crop to really bring out the feel of the wingspan when printed.

I love this even more each time I see it.

YOUR NOT ALONE I was thinking Acrylic Block would really set this off at A1 size - utterly awesome ...

Chris I can feel some orders coming on ... I feel with this shot you have to be very careful of the integrity of the printer - like a local one ! Because so many will save it and sell a few on eBay around the world ITS a STUNNER !

Martin,
Just out of curiosity. Can you post the original color version as well? Just for comparison.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

The Vulcan flew South low over our house this afternoon and back North again 2 hours later - magic! Unfortunately on both occasions I didn't have time to get the camera as it was so low we only heard it with seconds to spare.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Only just seen this, but glad I did. An amazing shot, just missing the noise. I really love the original ooc image just as much. It has a sort of metallic sheen which just suits it.
