Here's the deal... show us one of your photos from this year where you just plain lucked out. And I don't mean luck as in "... and I turned around and there was (reg number) on approach!" I mean something in-camera.

When I opened this image up large the first time (and you don't have to to see what I am talking about...), I was happily surprised to get them perfectly square to the lens. Then I noticed the orientation of the Mustang's prop. I still can't believe my luck. The geometry of this photo couldn't have been better if I planned it. I should have played the Lotto that day.
Okay... let's see the fruits of your good fortune!
