Hey

I just took this shot earlier tonight and was wondering if I should keep it in the queue or delete it. I was forced to use the highest ISO setting, so it is a little grainy, but I did the best I could to remove some of it using the version of photoshop I have.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
Thanks
Eric

It's not going to make it. It's not level, it's too dark, the color is off, and it has far too much grain.

I have tried that a few times and can say it is pretty hard to do. For me, the knee and the grain kill it.

Good job in keeping your aispeed while doing that though... Hopefully you weren't flying and taking the photo ;o)

I think if you turn the MFD and PFD down to the lowest setting using the softkey you can use a longer shutter speed and lower ISO. If you leave the G1000 on auto I think it will be too bright.

I'll give it a try. I was actually doing just the opposite...turning the brightness up as much as we could stand for it being dark outside... I guess that did mess things up a little. I've tried this type of shot quite a few times also and never had too much luck.

thanks again
Eric

I just recently discovered that you can manipulate the MFD and PFD seperately. Before I was just using the knobs on the left side. As soon as I found the softkey and took the brightness off of auto my students started seeing a whole lot less of that PFD and we still kept the TIS going on the MFD. That will teach em to look inside so much. The same feature is good for dimming the screen at night for a good photo I would think. I found that if you have it too bright or on auto the camera will pick that up more and it blows the rest of your shot.
