October 2020 Photo of the Month Competition

Post by StevenNFFC » Sun Oct 25, 2020 8:41 pm

I have had time off from the forum for personal reasons but I'm now back and tying to return for normality - I apologise for the delay

For the months I have missed I am going to allow entries from October of any year INCLUDING 2020

Photography Competition Rules

1. Only one entry per user, unless posting on behalf of another person who is unable to do so themselves (children for example). If this is the case, please state so on your entry.
2. The photograph must have been taken during the month in question. The date the photo was taken MUST be included in the post.
3. The photo can be of any subject you like, as long as there is some military aviation connection.
4. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not (cutting and pasting the moon into the shot, for example). HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.
5. The competition will remain open until 23.59 on the 1st December 2020 (UK time), to enable anyone with last minute entries some breathing space
6. The voting will be carried out by you, the members of FC, by a poll which will be created at the closing of the competition.
7. Moderators/Administrators will not be exempt from the competition, but cannot vote for their own entry.
8. The decision of the moderating team is final.
9. All images must be posted in line with the usual FC posting rules
10. The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.
11. Please do not comment on entries other than your own.

If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!

2009 for me-Wings over Houston and The Blue Angels. The pilots get closer as the season progresses and this late in the season (31st October) the proximity of the 4 legacy hornets is a sight to behold.

Something a little different from me taken on the 16.10.18 at RAF Lakenheath just before departing for the Mac Loop. Some of the F18's on deployment crossed the run way to line up for the fence hangars. The F18's coupled with FF tailed Raptors on that deployment has to be one of the best coupled with the based F15's. Will, James, Paddy thanks for your company that day.
Hope you enjoyed it and good luck all.
