The bent helicopter blade-this appears to be the result of a focal plane shutter. My semi-informed opinion, the gap in the curtains was traveling from right to left on the image. The blades were turning "image clockwise", so the shutter opening first encountered the lower blade when it was image-right, and moved in the same direction. By the time the blade had lined up in the vertical direction, the opening zipped across it in the opposite direction to its motion, lined up with it, giving a quick exposure to all of the blade at once. Yes, I have a Speed Graphic, why do you ask?
The helicopter blade appears bent because it is. These blades would brake if they would be rigid and therefor not bending.
Here is a more recent picture of a bent blade:http://helikopterhysteriezwo.blogspot.de/2014/02/crashes-splashes-76.html
