I went this morning to take some pictures of the sunflowers field behind my home when the plan starts spraying.
I climbed on an irrigation system (about 3 meter high) and used 800ASA and stabilizer to get as sharp pictures as I can.

Hello, Yuval -
Really unusual and eye-catching image. The colors are vibrant, and the details of the plane and the closer flowers are excellent. I like that we can clearly see the pilot. I would have enjoyed a note to explain a bit about how you got this shot; I see you were at 300/1 mm telephoto length, but were you in the air or on a hill? In any event, a great image.

Very interesting angle for a photo of a plane like this.
I'm just curious so I have to ask: How?
Was it just this close or did the 300m actually get you this close to the plane.
Overall I find the photo to be good, there is a however something about the photo that pulls down my overall impression. I can't quite put my finger on but I believe it is the colours. They look somewhat dull, like there is missing a "bang" to it.
Also I belive the contrast could have been boosted a little just add some more depth.
Thank you for sharing.

Well captured! I like that yellow plane against those yellow sunflowers.
This composition is also good.

Very nice shot of this action with a good sharpness on the plane and the blur of the landscape increasing when going to the background.
Perhaps with a less zoom view we could have seen perhaps lees details on the plane, but its actions would have been better shown?
