Which is the

Photograph you would like to of taken and why ?

obviously because of copyright etc, we will have to use links and i guess there would be more than one (well there is for me anyway) so one at a time

here goes

for some reason and i do not know why i loved the plane concorde (and i don't mean going on it i mean just watching it beautiful ) and i was lucky enough to of seen it quite a few times when it came into our local airport

so this is the photograph of it that i would really of liked to of been able to take

the photograph consist of concorde, the red arrows, and the Qe2

I have included one photo that i had taken on it's last ever departure from our local airport, that is a small portion of the crowd so i am not alone in my liking of the aircraft

over to you now,

Re: Which is the

I think you like the concorde because of the contrast.

The contrast to the first plane at Kitty Hawk and the
contrast to all other planes shuttling passengers around today.

It was very sad to see it end.

Re: Which is the

Hadn't seen this thread before - Palms, I LOVE that image of the Concorde, with the jet escort and the QE2! I can see why you would have liked to create that.

As far as one that I would like to have created -- the first image I tried to duplicate some years ago was one by John Shaw, a master nature photographer. I went to one of his seminars, and when I saw this simple image, I fell in love with photography all over again. It helped me realize that Light was truly the main ingredient in a beautiful image.

Right now, I'm thinking about trying to duplicate this image
for an assignment with my photo club. Gotta scout locations to see where I could place a wine glass -- if I own a wine glass...

** I located links to a couple of others that I would have loved to have created -- Wonderful capture of relationship and great isolation of subjects from background.

CJ, 3 of the 4 photos you reference, details the sun.
Something about that ball of fire that inspires!

Since the "dawn" of man, it's been revered.
Amen Ra.

palms1 - the images you chose all show awe/wonder/respect for the subject...something admirable to portray

CJ - The horse image is so jamb packed with emotion I can see why it's appealing. And the melting sun is sublime.

I'm fascinated by Hendrik Kersten's "bag" at the moment.

He seems to be very serious and not serious at the same time. There is nothing more interesting to me than the human face.
