one of the last to go       ©2011 elliott
Olympus E-620       38th place, 14 points
6s, f5.6, ISO 100, ?, Manual, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: saturation, noise reduce, resize       Extra Info: having lived here for thirty years, i've watched most of the shuttle launches. what made this one unique was that it launched before sunrise. normally after the boosters separate the 'show' would be over. i was already packing the camera away when i looked up and saw this. it was at an altitude that gave more direct illumination from the sun. i did a lot of research and math to figure that bright line is at least ten miles that the shuttle traveled in six seconds of the exposure. and what was intriguing to me was how quickly the exhaust gasses expand out many miles in just seconds.

    forkcandles.. thanks for the high rank and comment. ronoz and wangi thank you also. (and jade for comment).
i had other photos that may have done better than this, but i've always tried to watch the shuttle launches and the timing on this one was rare if not totally unique which made the plume or tail visible. so i was well excited to catch this shot as i had never seen a similar photo. thanks again. el

    Good capture, as well as research and explanation, watching a shuttle lift-off is one of the many things I would like to do , but as you say time is running out, well done & a TT.
