I'm sure many Santas wish they looked like that.
Coral, out of curiosity and for the other members here, have you found a good shutter speed for getting helicopter blades to look good? They have a hint of motion in the last frame in the first post, which conventional wisdom dictates is better than the 1/1600"+ frozen blade toy helicopter look that I always get.
Admittedly, about the only time I ever snap photos of helicopters and airplanes is when they suddenly pass overhead when I'm shooting sports or wildlife, so my shutter speed is cranked way up and I usually forget to adjust my settings much.
Oh, and I'm on my tablet, so apologies if you've left the EXIF data embedded in the images for us to red using a browser plug-in.
