Well done, guys!       ©2009 dodrizzt
Panasonic DMC-FZ50       35th place, 35 points
1/500s, f4, ISO 100, 51mm, Shutter Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Levels adjustment, selective dodge/burn, little saturation adjustment, crop, resize       Extra Info: This is not a photo trick... those guys really fly soooo low!!
Taken at the annual Summer Airshow in my city beach; the plane is a fire-fighter, and those brave guys, unfotunately, have a lot of work in summer fighting against fires around the whole country... In the Airshow, they actually landed on water just in front of us three times, to charge plane with water, and then made three full discharges, as if they were fire-fighting... really impressive!!
I took some other nice pics when water launching, but tend to like this simple one with the plane passing so low, and the baywatch with his thumb up seems to say 'well done, guys!!'

    I love it, my number one. Normally I would hate the ide of a person in a flight shot but it works so well.

    Nice juxtaposition. The heat haze (?) blurs the background a little but what can one do about heat haze?
