Very nice tribute Rodolfo, you are a kind soul my friend.


Let's just say I have some great role models from whom to learn. I am still young, and rough around the edges, and I often err greatly.

Edit for TOPP, and a graphical tribute to continue the (well-deserved) theme.

Thanks for the nice comments...that was an amazing flight. Im nervous before every flight, and especially so with new gear. But trial by fire is the best way to learn right?? That Jan Collmer is an amazing pilot - I think the Extra is controlled by his mind. Andrew is no slouch either - sure is a treat to fly with "pros" that put them selves exactly where you ask and stay there until you tell them to move.

Thought this a was pretty neat looking frame....I love flying with smoke on. half because it looks so awesome, and half

Hi Rodolfo:

Thanks buddy - its been fun trying to learn shoot like all you guys...

Vegas was a hoot! Warner and I ate an Inn N Out Burger every single day and twice one day. Man, a flight to HQ is sounding good for lunch all of a sudden.

I'm 20 minutes away and headed that direction Glenn! Should I call in our reservation?

Max Lucado wrote a book years ago titled, "When God Came Near". It was a work on the phenomenon of Christ coming here to do what only He could do for a fallen world. Max's writings are easy to grasp for people young, or mature in their faith, and they always make you think because they put a somewhat complex and sort of difficult to grasp scenario, into terms that make sense.

We all experience moments when "God Came Near". Some recognize it instantly for what it is, some feel it, but aren't Scripturally/Spiritually adept enough at the time to fully grasp the significance, others, for all kinds of reasons, shake it off or simply ignore the moment.

Sheila and I just went for a long walk this afternoon and took Halle with us. She opted for a shaded stroller replete with a beverage/snack center of sorts and a great view of the gorgeous day rolling by. We were about a mile into the walk, moving at a brisk pace, when from under the canopy Halle began to sing Christian songs. The first was "Standing On The Promises...." word for word, then went into a musical rendition of The Our Father, followed by "He Is Risen" by Paul Overstreet. She didn't skip a beat, and never looked out from under her canopy, completely lost in her impromptu worship. When God Came Near" indeed, I could feel His Breath.

Credit goes to the pilot, of course, for doing all the hard work. Hat's off to Steve Zimmerman in this particular case.

Mark, "luminous" and "three-dimensional" are among my highest compliments for an image of an aircraft in flight. That Typhoon of yours is both.

Thanks Rodolfo & J-A,

been messing around with the NIK filters on these last 2 images trying to emulate some of the techniques that Jay uses in his PP. I think I'm on the right tracks.

Hi guys,

Took delivery of a 1DX last week and had my first play with it yesterday at the Abingdon Air & Country Show. A big change from my 1Dmkii, so its going to take a little getting used to. Spent time mainly playing with the different AF modes, if anyone's got any tips with this camera I'm all ears!

The only downers were that I found the sensor is absolutely filthy, with dust even in the viewfinder. Never had a new camera arrive in such a state before. And as it was my first airshow in 10 months, I can't believe how rusty I was.

A few samples from yesterday:

Nice James, I was there too. Sadly I only had a 7D with a 70-200 and cheap 2.0x TC! We also got there late so not a great position either. Nice day out though!

Abingdon was the only show I went to last year, so 12 months for me

How dare you post such crap here... oh wait.

Gorgeous shots, James. Hard to pick a favorite there since they're all so "rusty", but the first image of the set and the biplanes do seem to slightly nose ahead of the rest IMHO...

I'm with Mark James. If that's rusty, we better hold on when you get back in shape.

I don't know if you've seen them, but I've made a number of comments about the 1DX sensor. Mine didn't arrive dirty, but it didn't take too long for it to get that way. The high speed buffer has to have something to do with it. Mine gets filthy in the upper left portion of the images. Some of it is dust, some of it is crud that has been flung from the mirror mechanism. You don't want to see what that sensor looks like at f/16, a gravel road is cleaner. I have formed a habit of cleaning the sensors in my X's once a week. Too much time spent in post if I don't. Much of what I shoot is f/16 to f/22, it's a nightmare. Nikon is dealing with it on the D600 as well, and it doesn't have the buffer the X has so I guess it's just something in the manufacturing process. Other than that, you will love the X, it's dead on and fast.
