Coming in to land (or water)

This challenge closed almost 8 years ago.

The Challenge

There are a great number of very good photos of landings, so let’s vote for our favourite :-) Planes, birds, insects coming it to land, water or perch.

Sorry, no balloons this time, as it’s nearly impossible to tell whether a balloon is taking off or landing – besides, they just had their turn :-)

Judging / Voting Criteria

Vote for those you like, as many as you like

Rewards & Prizes

The usual fame and applause, plus:

  1. Winner and next top 5 featured
