Hi Loosescanon.

I like the picture a lot. It could be said that the helio is a bit dark against the backround, but it does it for me.

Please tell me it was a flyby and not in formation, I don't think I could handle the envy :wink:

PS I thought they called these "little birds".

Actually this is a trainer at the local airport, they have 2 and practice all day. The photo seems OK on my monitor as far as brightness goes.

Thanks for the comment.

A bit late (haven't visited this forum section for a while), but still...

Very nice...At 140mm, it must have been d****d close! Having a helo this close would be a dream for me. Good to see you used a low shutter speed.
