Flickr a Day 278: ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’

I dismissed today’s selection as being a Photoshop fake, before on second peruse looking more closely and then reading the shooter’s explanation: “Beachgoers at St. Maarten’s Maho Beach get a rush as Air France flight 488 from Paris—operated by an Airbus A340-300—passes over their heads before touching down on runway nine at Princess Juliana International Airport on Friday, March 21st, 2008”.

Is that a lucky shot or a master at work? Matt Hintsa captured self-titled “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close”, using Canon EOS 20D and 17-85mm lens. Vitals: f/4, ISO 100, 1/500 sec, 17mm. From Westport, Conn., but living in Waltham, Mass., Matt joined Flickr in January 2007. In 2015, he shoots with the Canon 50D.
