Hi Sergio,

Exellent in flight shot
superb sharpness, details, colours, composition, POV and BG

TFS Thijs

i expect this is the best of the crop and what a shot...and at f8
judging by the shutter speed were you using B setting for synch..or does your cam synch at these high speeds..
i understand the reversed zenit lens..which must the the best they made...judging by the results you got..
how did you attach it to the canon camera..
its incredible how they functioned together with the high speed strobe light..

amazing deatils

Olá Sergio
acho que não tenho mais nada a dizer...
simplesmente incrivel...
facil favorita..

Hi Sergio.
Excellent action shot. You captured it at just the right moment. Wonderful exposure, great focus.
Well done. Regards Krzysztof

amazing capture.
focus is difficult with reversed lenses and DOF usually very shallow.
You managed very good despite it is an action shot. Impressive.
Interesting to see the inflight pose: I would have imagined that they normally bring their legs to the body.
