This is my first attempt at a landing gear shot, not normally my cup of tea but with all the aircraft packed into the R&D hangar these days at the Air Force Museum in Dayton, about the only way to get an unobstructed view of any part of the museum's XB-70.
I used a cheap (but new) point & shoot camera for this - I imagine there's some grain and softness as a result. I dunno - what do you think?
Yes there is, sorry. Also, the aircraft in the background might be considered clutter (not by me...but you never know) . Maybe a shot angled down at the gear, so the floor is in the background may be a better viewpoint. But like you mentioned, grain/noise is present.

OK - thanks for the feeback. As evidenced by the fact that I took my son's new $100 Fuji point-and-shoot versus dragging the big gun with me, I wasn't planning on taking any museum pictures since others have well documented that facility before me. However, I was so impressed by the XB-70 that I felt compelled to try something, anything... that thing is amazing, much bigger than I expected it to be.
