You guys suck!... LOL ;)

Asher, you have to make a closed forum where they can show themselves their pictures, I am getting sick looking at this *&$!())! BRILLIANT quality.... arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

P.S.

Nicolas, I think I will not nessecarily have access to a Jetranger, Robinson or the likes, rather heavy searescue version, well, better than a kite I guess. Really look forward to that! :)

You know.... I am not jeleaous on your Sinar.... I am telling that myself EVERY DAY!

I am not jeleaous at all you know.... no no...

%$£"!

OK YOU GOT ME! I AM JELEAOUS AS HELL!!!!!!

All those boring pictures from Sheik Yallayalla from Dubudaba on his 50million dollar Jacht, farting Oysters and guzzling Veuve.

This is a waste of this fine camera when it could produce the most stunning irish landscapes in my artistic hands instead of being bored from shooting one boat after the other, while you scare the living daylight out of her when you dangle her 100 feet above the water with your St.Emillion hangover. LOLOLOL ;)

Nope! She is in good hands in deed! :) But.... DONT you let her go.... EVER, this is like the woman of your dreams, and now that you started to shoot with her, now she is your fiancee, give her THE RING! ;)

... and I'm waiting eagerly too, Nicolas!

Should I use it as blackmail?

Hi Cem

I had wished him to post here with a "mirror" picture and make his own outing… Maybe Thierry could help, with white mail 1st!

well - after this "subtle" nudge it looks like i really have to make a coming out here on opf. :D

so here goes: hello fellow opf members!
i am lorenz koch, a swiss bloke who is an amateur photo enthusiast in his spare time.
you can see my humble work here: http://www.loko.ch
loko is my nickname by the way. i got it back in kindergarden from one of my older sister's friends and it stuck.

during working time i am the pr and communications manager of sinar. hence the connection to nicolas, asher and thierry.
however i have decided not to use this account in this official function. So please don't fill my inbox with sinar related questions. on one hand i am travelling a lot so i don't often have time to check back here. and on the other hand everything i know is being published on http://www.sinarcameras.com anyways.

so i would feel most comfortable if you could welcome me as one of your own - another crazy with a soft spot for photography.

after this lengthy introduction you have deserved to view the mirror image of nicolas' shot above.
be gentle... i did let nicolas have the favorable lighting condition and had to fiddle quite a bit to make this picture look half decent:


cheers
loko

Gruezi Lorenz....

thanks for that shot: look good!
it looks like its easier to shoot from a boat than a chopper - apart from the light conditions.

Nicolas, the Robinson, it's still the one without the rear rotor, therefore it has to be moving all the time?

Hi Lorenz,

Welcome to OPF :-). You can be 100% sure that I, for one, won't bother you with any questions re. Sinar (LOL, I wonder why? <grin>). I will, however, enjoy seeing some of your personal photography work and have some "one crazy person to another crazy person" kind of chats with you here in the future.


Cheers,

Cem

Thanks Loko!

Welcome aboard, promised I won't bother you with questions, after all, Thierry's there most of the time…

it's nice to see how we look from outside, but now we have a problem with Marine, my wife and Romain's Mom BTW, she's now scared!

And thanks for the light!

No problem for stationary "flight" but in fact we don't use that often as our subject, contrary to buildings do move! So we have "relatively" stationery flights…

Cheers mon ami,

Kewl... A BIG welcome Loko! Most people around know me as "Bear", (short for laughing bear) I spare you the Alahti (Cherokee) Version. Comes from my time where I was living in the USA.

Good to have you here!

thank you cem, bear and nicolas for the warm welcome.

here's another shot that puts the beautiful 60 foot yacht in context to the helicopter.
as to why nicolas needs the helicopter for this shot remains a secret though.. he'd have had the same perspective from the powerboat *grin
the chopper pilot was very daring by the way...

Because a helicopter makes neither wake, nor waves… and that it places me very precisely where I wish (well, most of the times ;-)…

Yup!

Thats a very kewl shot, without the heli or another point of reference I find it difficult to appreciate the grandiousity of the yachts shown!

If I see that right, the yacht is moving towards the heli, some stunt in deed!

... give Nicolas a 45° prism finder!

And you Lorenz, use a longer lens, to keep the horizon as it should be!

:)

EDITED for addition: But not too long, we don't want to push you out of the boat!

Good advises Thierry!

But Loko/Lorenz came with a nice surprise for me… a rotating accessory for the back! that's very neat and absolutely necessary !
