Default B-17 "Liberty Belle"

Recently a local airfield in the Tampa area had a visit from a restored, flying B-17 bomber from WWII. Thought I would share a few of my pics.

Thanks to all for your nice comments.

I had a hard time getting the prop blur when the plane was in flight. It was a very bright sunny day, shooting with a 200mm Sigma on an Olympus E-520. Even at lower ISO, the bright day kept the shutter speeds up, even while selecting smaller and smaller f-stops.

I think you need to add a ND filter (or even a polarizer) to your Christmas list this year

LOL! What I didn't say was that after I was leaving, I remembered that I had my circular polarizer in my camera pouch all along. I just forgot that I had it with me until it was too late.

Nice series, Steve. All are very good, but my two favorites of the bunch are one and three. Prop blur does it every time!

Oh, and they did a jam-up restoration job on that old bird.

Thanks for your kind words Mark. I've already been visiting your site, from some of your landscape photos that you previously posted. Your landscape photos of France are some of my favorites. I like the imagination of some of your compositions.
