Vulcan take off B&W

Taken friday at the Farnborough air show. Solid grey overcast almost all day which made getting any good images very difficult for me. Anyway here is our only airworthy vulcan bomber pulling up just after take off.

Thanks for looking. ATB Martin

E-600 and 70-300mm

WOW I like this very much..

Don't suppose you have a hi-res version that you wouldn't mind me using as my desktop background do you?

I can only think of two problems with this... 1/ I didn't take it and 2/ it's a cracker.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Processing suits the subject very nicely. I've tried crops and can't see any improvement.

Would be very pleased with this; Wally hit the nail on the head.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Thanks to all for your kind words. The funny thing is the original colour version of this image was destined for the recycle bin as i could not see a way to get a useable version of it. In the end i decided to try a mono conversion and ended up with my favourite image from the day.

Garrie pm me your email address and you can have a copy at original resolution.

Again thanks for looking. ATB Martin

Hmm, looks good on the desktop, plenty of space, nice tones.

Re: Vulcan take off B&W

Jealous. That is a true corker. The heat haze left by the jets (for me) is what makes this shot. Did you enhance the heat haze in post processing by any chance?

My Favorite Plane the Vulcan Bomber, this is one majestic plane and you have captured it superbly, you must be really pleased with the capture because I am very pleased looking at this awesome plane, well done Martin.

Excellent. Unusual shot too.

Al Kaholik, you just HAVE to try and see one flying. There's nothing like it.
