Dare Devil Stunt plus a nice shot
Posted By: MightyMike, 12-07-2008, 10:20 AM

This was at the Ottawa Airshow, just one of a few stunts. The plane and the vehicle try to match speed and the guy standing on the vehicle tries to grab the ladder, it took to the third pass before they got it to work.

This next photo was a story... I edit it and upload it, i made sure the horizon was level as they reject photos that don't have a level horizon. The first upload got rejected for not having a level horizon, the truth is the horizon was straight but the hanger in the foreground is leaning so it doesn't look straight. So i figured i'd play their game and straightened the hanger leaving the horizon crooked... Again it got rejected, so i went back and appealed the first rejection and yet again it got rejected... Well i figured i'd compromise and rotate it so neither the hanger nor the horizon is straight, again it got rejected... At this point i'm very frustrated, i went back to the original, re-edited it and again made sure the horizon was straight, when i uploaded it i wrote a note to the screener stating what i did and that if they can't tell that its straight they need their eyes checked... It got passed to the head screener (creator of the website) and he didn't look at it for a good 8 days when he does he lets it up and tells me not to be cheeky as their eyes are perfect LOL
