Airway one closed       ©2010 forkcandles
Panasonic DMC-GH1       6th place, 62 points
1/500s, f10, ISO 100, 50mm, Landscape, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: resized and contrast to increase blue.       Extra Info: This is Flat Holm an island in the Bristol Channel and is under the main airway to Heathrow and other European flights. a goverment edict to close all airspace resulted in a clear sky and no noise whilst out sailing in the channel. I liked the colour for Jade O and Wangi to show the route his partner flew into Bristol.

    Amazing what some people will do to get Jade's vote. Next challenge i am going to submit a plain sheet of blue paper LOL

Seriously - congratulations. I agree with Jade in that you should get this one blown up and on to your wall.

    I only wish one day to capture one like this. I think it also an outstanding photograph worthy of display in a gallery of fine photographic art. Blown up to full scale "painting size," it would be a fabulous piece to display.

    Very good finding, great color and perfect composition!
I cannot belief that there is the lighthouse reflection on the water.
Very well done!

    Wonderful what you can do when you stop bouncing your camera off the deck :-) I love the blue mix no end but would have preferred to see it zoomed in more. Lovely quiet mood and I guess that is what you were experiencing with the lack of jet noise.

    The blue colour steals my heart too :-) a beautiful image for sure, nicely composed with so many negative space.
I had a lot of problems to decide my TT, with many creative entries this time, it was hard discarding some. Yours was initially out of my TT, because I felt that the connection with the theme, the "airport disconnection", is nice these days, but would be lost as the time passes... later, I take further looks at your pic (I really like it :-) and suddenly discovered that, in fact, you really have here two "icons" for "disconnected": an island (disconnected from the country) and a lighthouse (a classical, "iconic" place for a lonely, "disconnected" life guarding it). So, finally, back at my TT, well done!! :-)

    Love the rich colour with the little flick of white that is the lighthouse. Blissfully disconnected, and top shot for me.

    There's certainly nothing more disconnected than an island. It must have been almost eerie to have been out at that time. The blue of the night sky is beautiful.

    Nice peaceful feeling in this picture. Nice composition, beautiful space of colors. One of my favorites.

    O.k. I like blue! You ran the risk of losing the subject in this one but instead, despite the small screen (monitor) there is a grand sweep on this shot. My first two picks were easy and are so far ahead of the field; this was an easy pick for #2.
