Here's a tiny puzzler. =:) The lens rental company I used to obtain the (rather wonderful, and of course, painfully expensive) 200-400mm f/4 for RIAT is now running a little competition for the best aviation photograph taken in 2015, using one of their rentals. (Which, sadly, eliminates the ultrawides, as that 10-20mm is my own)

Now, I do have other possibilities, but, of these three, which would you choose? I've left it deliberately as a checkbox form rather than radio button, if you want to opt for two, not just one. If you feel so inclined, I'd appreciate reading specific constructive criticism on them - absolutely not compulsory, as I know I'm fairly useless at highlighting why a given image catches me, so maybe others aren't any more comfortable trying. (The checkboxes are by the lower left of the photos) However, ultimately, I can only submit one entry. So, if you're in a critical mood, I'd appreciate hearing why one of them would be better than another.

Poll #2022965 A competition entry

Which of these really grab you?

11(52.4%)
4(19.0%)
6(28.6%)


And to compensate, here's one of the tracks from JMJ's forthcoming album, in this instance, coming from his collaboration with Little Boots - "If.. !" I'm definitely looking forward to the release, although the mention on iTunes of a "deluxe" edition gives me pause for thought, as I'm no fan of these "exclusive" releases labels are so fond of, keeping a few different tracks back for different channel sponsors. Still, maybe this'll just be a "basic" and "deluxe" release, wherever it's purchased.

Or if you'd prefer something a touch more surreal, how about a 1980s infomercial, Santo Gold. It's a.. slightly confused piece, as this review manages to get across quite well. Be sure not to be in a sober state of mind first.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I must confess, I now see that I'm not particularly interested in air show photos – much like I'm not interested in bird photos. I guess you "gotta be there." Photos 2 & 3 feel static to me, so I say that #1 is the best of the bunch. Candidly, I wouldn't look twice at any of them in a gallery. But maybe it's just me.
