No, not at all. As has allready been discussed on several threads (often resulting in heated discussions) we should allways fly according to the planes airspeed, not itīs speed over ground. Hence, the pictures you have posted are simply the result of too little windspeed. Not you fault at all!

TOO Fast?

If we tore up the owners sod farm like that...We would be flying at another place.......I suspect the pic was staged.....
A landing that hard only exposes one thing....You failed to bring the nose up when needed........
So I am a sucker for staged was good reading.
