This is a funny image I'm sure I wouldn't have taken and would have regretted it now that I see what you've done with it. We should have an 'almost boring contest' where we see who can take what would be assumed as a boring image and post our vision of how to make it better. Wait, did I say that out loud? I'm not calling your image boring...laf! I can't get over how I wouldn't have shot this, but the more I look the more I like it! Neat-O and more please! S-


The only "thinking" came after the fact, Steve :) Stumbled upon a crop duster - and man, that plane was fast! When I first arrived, it was going perpendicular to my position (pull off the road, quick!), then changed to parallel to the road. So the one posted here is just one of the many as I shot as fast as I could. Below is link to 3 that didn't quite make best focus. Did I mention this was my first day out with that lens and camera, and the plane was flying FAST? :)

Me too, and I like #3 the best but only a little since I love the closeups too. (OK)
Friends call me Chuck. :photo: This link takes you to my Flickr albums. Please click on any album to scroll through it.
(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Steve and Chuck, thanks for the look-see! I might try a series of the playful pp variety to match the one posted to this thread. I think fanciful will be more fun than trying to go straight :)
