Hello guys,
I might have mentioned it before, Im a released tank commander with a great passion for both tanks and photography. I joined a unit for a week of training, and I hope you would like it. C&C are very welcomed.

Awesome shots. Great timing in #3, it appears you can actually see the shell in flight.

Good job of freezing the projectile in #3. What shutter speed was used there?

1/5000.
I was surprised when I saw the projectile itself after I viewed the pic, didnt aim for that, but it was certainly a cool addition. I was lucky enough to have multiple attempts at this, one wasnt enough.
Thanks for the feedback, I will post some more later on.

Great catch in #3, & these are nice work. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest.

It's all been said. Number three ROCKS! Sometimes, luck is worth more than talent.

Wow, killer photos. As mentioned, #3 is a great shot and needs a larger watermark as it is certain to be "re-purposed".

I shot many more photos this week, but I don't know where to post them. They don`t seem to fit in this section or in People section (my other thread: http://*******/KXoPc7)​. I guess "Action" shots best describe them. Any ideas?

^ ^ More good stuff!

There's enough of the tank in this last one, to make it "Transportation"?! ; )

I count the tracks as part of the tank! :D
So should I keep posting here?

Great images! I agree with the others that #3 is an awesome catch, intended or not. Surprises in our shots are always a joy.
in #8, did the track actually break, or was this a repair exercise?
Hats off to the IDF,
Shalom
