An unusually close up shot of an Ariane 5 launch. Currently the most powerful launch vehicle in the space industry, it is said that the ground can be felt vibrating as much as 30km away from the launch site in Kourou, French Guiana when the Ariane takes off. Another clean up job courtesy of Noise Ninja & Photoshop for your enjoyment.

Does that mean that you can't use a tripod?

You sure post a lot of these goodies, but, then again, you didn't take them. I think I shall start saving your posts onto my computer and then re-upload them giving credit to you and whatever space organization took the pictures. ;-)

well you could but then I'd have to point you in the direction of the Caedes PIIN for a senatorial bitch slapping :-) could trawl through the endless NASA/JPL/Heritage & ESA public archives yourself as well as getting permission to go through some non public archives, finding some real beauties and then exert considerable amounts of time fixing them up to a presentable quality....

senatorial bitch slappin's huh Phil??! can anyone join in??
Another truly breathtaking capture and processing job! Ever offered your services to NASA or the ESA to do stuff for them? When I first saw your Space Programme submissions, I thought that your job involved processing images for those organisations because of the pure quality.

recreational bitch slappings from Senate members require a small payment through the usual channels :-)

I wouldn't dare to come up that close... But the image is impressive. Pin sharp, no noise - you did great work Phil. You actually have the feeling as if standing there and participating in the event.

If you admire nature for its creations why don't you visit the gallery of its reporter...

How impressive!
I just seen a 3d film in an Imax theatre about the ISS, it was truly an incredible experience. So it nice to see your images sow up here at Caedes.

The raw power of such machines is just incredible, and your picture captures it perfectly. Very clear for a launch photography. Nice work.
