    What that bottom line really there? It is so much blacker than the others!? But no matter what, this is such a cool capture. More so since you think the patient in this emergency rescue flight did not survive... :( Therefore also the title (could also be a caption, right?) is quite fitting.

    Yes it's there, it is just closer and not as DOF killed as the others.


    Yeah, I thought the title was very fitting, it is a major contributer to my posting and processing it differently than the others.


    Additionally, I've done a little touch up to it, those of you who viewed it previously may have to force refresh.

    Just saw this... Am new here, so you have to cut me some slack...

    I like this shot, but think that graphically, it would be a much stronger image if you cropped the trees out at the bottom. By doing that, it would have a more surreal look to it and in my opinion, make it a much stronger image. Nice seeing here though. :thumbup:

    Thanks, I had considered the very crop you are suggesting, but it felt too tight to the helo, it's a little tight to the rear of it as it is but it was required to eliminate a building that absolutely had to go.

    The area around the helicopter is brighter... intentional? I quite like it.
