    Another nice series :)

    #1 is a true standout for me. Again, because of the added fg. I really like the movement in these.

    I was doing a little more calculations on the magnitude of these things. I think that night they were making two turns per second. So at the tips they are traveling 858mi/hr. (533km/hr.). If you were tied to tip you would be experiencing a force 492 times that of gravity!!! So, if you weighed 150 pounds it would be like you weighed 73800 pounds!!!!

    i suggest getting the canon 50mm 1.8 and boosting your iso so you can get the propellers moving a tad slower. that would make those pictures beyond awesome but i love what you did with it.

    I agree... I was trying to get there earlier so that there was a little bit more light, but even going 20 mi/hr faster than the speed limit (65 mi/hr. on icy roads) was still not going to get there when I actually wanted to be there... Those were take with any were between a shutter speed of .3 sec to 1/10 of a second and an aperature of 3.5 - 5.6.

    I love these. Love No.1 the best, I like how you've left the pebbles/stones in the picture. Matches greatly with the colour of the Wind Generators.

    Some of the Images look a bit low quality, or a bit pixelated. Still great nonetheless.
