I saw that this was number one on airliners.net for quite a while - well done!!!

What an inspired, unusual shot. Yes, it's not actually running. Very clever!

Nice AC bird in the background!

Very cool :) It's actually brilliant to see how something so amazing can be created by humans!

It's well composed and the blur of the spinning engine makes it kind of exciting....you used zoom right? :o

Haha, not as much as you would think. I was probably no more than oh... 30ft from the engine as I took this :excited:
Anyway, thanks heaps for your comment!

First of all, NICE shot! Second, aren't you just the most clever. I've been wondering how long before you used your cam out there, while working. ;P

The need for speed and the lust for thrust.

This really gives an indication of the speed that these turn at.

Lost myself on this comment, LOL. DA problems. Know what it is and think that may be called "the fan". In any event, nice capture.

That's a really good photo. :) I like the way you've captured the motion, and especially like the details seen in the background.. the second plane, the maple leaf, and all.. :)

Yeh, I don't really fancy them either that much - as far as the 74s go - I prefer the Pratts :nod:

Great job, Sean. I was so excited to see something new from you :dance:

Title and description is catchy and very suiting. It's very... you.
The photo itself is probably even more you. Haha. Focus is perfect and the stuff in the background makes it a whole.

Not fast at all, it was blowing slowly in the wind with a slow, slow exposure time ;)

I have airside access at the airport with my job :) I used the Canon 17-85mm IS, she's a beaut and brand new :D
Thanks so much for this though!

:iconcristosea:
Cristosea Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2006
Because I have airside access working on the apron at the airport dearest lady ;) What keeps me at my job.

Of course it sucks in air, it gets you off the ground and carries you overseas for 8 hours to your man. However to give out my secret here, the turbines were just spinning lightly in the wind and with an eight second exposure, it just gives the feel of it rotating much quicker ;)

Wow...well it is a wicked shot. I don't believe in planes. Ask Dave. :nod: I think its a miracle they fly. :nod:

It's an amazing concept the way they work, that's for sure :aww:
Oh, I love them dearly. Seriously, I saw my British Airways 747 sitting at her gate the other night and I just about started to cry. Like I wanted to go up the stairs to get on board. It's so strange, and it sounds stupid but really.
