Looks like you must be a Dick to be standing in front of a crop duster.
great shot

And then what happened?.....great shot. Nicely balanced. A lot of good elements: the blurry prop, the foggy spray the rocky ditch. What more would I like?? Maybe richer colors? That plane could be yellowed up once the contest is over nad the restrictions are off/

Very cool! Isn't the plane missing the field a bit? I really like the almost stopped motion of the prop. Framing is wonderful. If I had one wish, it would be the plane was "doing" the middle of a field", but I'm not quibbling. Great job! Definate 10! Swash

Did you get out of the way in time? This is a nice shot.

This is an awesome shot – did you manage to get out of the way :o) If you managed to pose this I'd be surprised so it has to be a 10… Great shoting…

I don't see how this fits the challenge. The shot isn't bad, but....

How did you get out of the way? :P Nice shot.

Did you get hit by the blast?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/02/2002 10:15:00 PM
you look like you're about to be herbicided yourself. This shot would have more punch if there was a person's facial expression upon looking up and seeing that thing coming, but in your case they were probably all smart enough to run for cover while you remained trying to get a ferw shots before fleeing

Nice picture composition, framing, exposure, speed .. not an easy shot. other weeks : 6 or 7, this week : 4. Sorry I do not think this is a 'candid moment'. Congratulations for the shot anyway.

This is an excellent shot... i think it's the only photo this week that doesn't feature a person that I'm giving a 10... great work :) = 10 - jmsetzler

I'm nost sure what this has to do with a candid moment...

It's a spectacular shot, and knowing that you might have been sprayed, I think you deserve a good vote. A picture of you running away would have made a sure winner :-).

Neat shot - good caption - hope you held your breath! Not sure how candid it is, though.

I love the shot, very dramatic.

Doesn't do it for me as a candid image. More like p-journalism. I like it would rate it higher in a different challenge.... guess i need "unaware" people in a candid shot. 3 sjgleah

A *very* nice shot, I'll admit... but I don't think it meets the challenge in any way, shape or form. Now if you were able to capture the look on the pilot's face...
