  1. Okay...I need to know how you did those two helicopters. That is truly amazing. If it's one I don't see how you did that. Excellent :)

  9. All I can say is if those helicopters are far real, I am glad I was not in one of them. Regardles, you did a super job on both photos.

  13. Have you been taking care of some very young children recently, James? :)

    That double helicopter shot is just fantastic! And your jumping cloud made me smile — thank you, I need that right now.

  14. Fantastic shots. The cloud ball in the second snap looks like the plane of the initial days.

  18. How did you do that? (with the helicopters)
    Such pretty skies!

  19. Mirror, mirror, tell how James did picture those two helicopters!..Ü. At least, you kept he magic of Snow-White!
    And , talking about movies, your second picture made me think about Steve Mc Queen in the "great escape", when he jumped over the fence with his moto..
    Two great shots! and BTW, more congratulations for your yesterday's awards!

  20. Great post - loved both shots, but the fluffy cloud jumping over the barbed wire fence is my favourite.

  21. Great, and interesting, sky photos.

  22. Did you do a photoshop 'clone' and re-size of one of the choppers? I have looked at the shot large and I think I can just see the left-hand blde of the top chopper superimposed on the body of the bottom chopper; it's quite dark and hard to see. Of course, I might be completely wrong - do tell!

    Thanks for visiting my Journal.

  27. Nice photos, but the barbed wire is a bit ominous, no? Maybe the cloud is really a Trojan horse, hiding rescuers...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cool captures. And butchering fairy tales is just fine with me!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh! It looks as if the helecopters crashed. My heart jumped with shock.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those are fantastic James! The helicopter one is so cool!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Impressive! Love both shots and the symbolism in them.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I like the second best, something about an old fence gets me. Not that the first shot isn't good, though!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love the little face in the jumping cloud, right at the top of the cloud.
    The combination of the two shots was like something out of a prison escape movie.
