Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello everybody, as I see that someone still posts twice per day to express his view in the discussion, I will do the same. Bill Jurens (as guy) wrote: "My own calculations and analysis...would suggest that the photographer would be at or near the rail with the mount trained at only about 35 degrees...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello everybody, as Mr.Wadinga is even unable to respect the simple (wrong) rule of his "moderator" to post once per day , and the "moderator" does nothing (http://www.kbismarck.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=8756&p=85376#p85375) to stop his violations, I can surely do the same... :wink: Wadinga wrot...

Re: A correct attribution for the "Flash Effect" photo?

Hello everybody,

thanks to Herr Nilsson for posting the correct inclination of Bismarck on course 220° (I don't have a graphic tool on this computer to rotate objects...), completing the "demonstration" for Mr.Wadinga, from whom we all wait for a final acknowledgement...

Hello everybody, following the suggestions of some members, I won't anymore make any polemic in the "Bismarck General Discussion" forum, just discussing the way the "moderation" is put in place (and the recent unfair decisions of the "moderator" against me) here only, where such a debate about the "...
