Tank Tread
Lens: DA 21mm Ltd Camera: K-01 Photo Location: Fort Eustis ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/45s Aperture: F3.2 
Posted By: tim.anderson, 10-10-2014, 05:05 PM

Just recently took a trip up to the Fort Eustis Army Transportation Museum, although I have lived just 20 miles away for 4 years now. I should have gone earlier, and now need to go back becuase I wasn't able to see everything in one visit. They have an example of just about everything ever used to move troops or supplies sitting there on display. Here is a shot of some tank treads from a tank loaded up on a flatbread. I really liked how this perspective and framing turned out.

Very nice! I've ben intending to go to Fort Eustis myself. If you like armor and militaria, take a drive down to Danville, VA and check out the Armor Museum, the have some great and rare vehicles and memorabilia.

Great subject, and you're really showing what the DA21 can do wide open--I must admit I'm usually stuck on f8 out of habit, but this photo will be a good reminder to think things out a bit more.

Marvelous composition - I dig the selective focus. The shot really emphasizes the mass of the vehicle.

Great photo. Instantly recognizable subject. Monochrome was an excellent choice.

Thanks for the nice words everyone. I was really glad with how this shot turned out. I had minimum equipment with me so I was really happy to get the shot I envisioned with this one.

A tank on a flatbread? That must be a crunchy lunch.
