  • A weird shot, might be ok?


    Quite a strange shot taken in Central London

    I can't believe that managed to get where it has, a very skillful pilot

    Opinions grateful

    Good shot, but I don't know. The foreground obstruction in the left (a stoplight ?) is kind of distracting..I think it may be a tad unlevel, too (that may be due to the fact that I only have one shoe on ).
    Hope this helps!

      i also think it's soft and too much jpeg compression there.

          I agree, but it is a very unique shot...however, it might be good for your personal collection only...I would still try it though!

                Interesting shot....can't believe he managed to get in there.

                Is that really a corporate advertisement on the side of an air ambulance? lol

                  Yes it is-if they help pay for the running of the air ambulance they are welcome to have their names on it, I don't think that heloicpoter is paid for from our taxes (although it should be).

                  I'm more surprised that the pilot has gotten away with parking his helo in a no parking zone and hasn't been clamped

                    If yopu get the first shot level and sharp without bringing out the noise too much, then I would overlook the foreground clutter given the very unique location the shot was taken. Worth a try imho. And I suggest to add a few words of explanation on where the shot was taken etc.
