SPOTM August 2019 - Smoke or Vapour

Post by andygolfer » Mon Aug 12, 2019 4:11 pm

This is the SPOTM (Special Photo Of The Month) competition for August 2019 and the subject is ‘smoke or vapour'

The subject of your entry should be a photo of one or more civil registered aircraft including any preserved ex military with a civilian registration giving off smoke or vapour such as either an aircraft contrailing or with vapour on/off the wings or discharging smoke (display smoke, engine start up or dirty engines!) aircraft carrying a genuine military registration at the time of the photo are excluded.

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 photo may have been taken on any date, it does not have to be taken in the month of the competition

3. 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. HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.

4. The competition will remain open until 23.59 (UK time) on the 7th September 2019 - please note new extended closing date to enable anyone with a last minute entry some breathing space.

5. Voting will be conducted by a poll open to all the membership shortly after the closure of the competition.

6. 'Rule 6...' There's no rule 6 Bruce'

7. The decision of the moderating team is final.

8. All images must be posted in line with the usual CA posting rules (size etc.), please read them if you're not sure how to post.

9. The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.

10. Please also embed the images and not links to images, if you're not sure how to do it then shout up and someone will sort it out. It is permissible to change your entry before the closing date.

11. Do not comment on other member's photos.

12. A brief description of where and when the image was taken would be nice too.

If you have any questions please PM me

Good luck everyone.

I'll kick this month off with a rather grainy shot taken at LHR in 1977. Strangely enough with all my airliner photos hardly any of them are 'dirty' !

I was going to try a smoky one but as it was a Pitts I decided to save it until next month's competition so let's try this one instead, Ethiopian A.350 ET-ACQ half hidden in it's own vapour cloud when on finals for 27R at Heathrow in January 2018....

entries for this competition have now closed.
what they lack in quantity this month is certainly made up for by the quality of the entries - thanks to everybody who entered.

The poll is now open for voting here: https://www.civilianaviation.co.uk/foru ... 10&t=33565

PLEASE NOTE: voting is open to all members, NOT just those that submitted an entry.
