damnit, you beat me to it Johan, guess I wasn't paying attention (I went into the civil aviation forum and then decided against it, so I deleted civil_aviation in the address bar and replaced it with aviation_photography, thus bypassing visiting this forum).

Ah well  Sad

Hi Johan

Thanks for the plug here  Big grin Just wake up in Bangkok hotel, a nice morning sweet gift to me!!

hehe I will comp you back someday  Smile

It was my 1st time to Phuket and god the place, setting and spot are just heavenly perfect, anyone with a 200mm about will do just well as I do and I have a few more good one to come!!!

The Domodedovo shows a real moment of tense and struggle! I really thought it won't make it at one stage! ....coz I was almost at 3/4 end of the Runway, and the thing just still rolling with NO sights of rotate at all!!!! But it did get airborne right at the end of the runway. I suppose it carried all Russian jetsetters back all the way to Russia. Earlier the day, there was a Kras Air in TransEuropean Color IL86, he went to Utappo, and took 3/4 of the R unway too, HKT have a 3000 meter runway I believe!

I also remember seeing an IL86 take off from Rwy 20 in Barcelona, Marlo Plate said they did that a lot and it is really scarey to see they finally airborne at the very end!

I saw the following in HKT on a 2 day weekend there 18-19/1

Domodedovo IL96
Kras Air IL86
Novair A332
Finnair B757
Condor B753
Lauda B763 Daily
China A300, B738
FAT MD-90
Uni Air MD-90
Orient Thai B747 x2
Cambodia Sky Eyes AN-24
Malaysian b737
Silk Air A320
Bangkok Air All colorful B717, ATR72s
Privatair B737-700 HB-IIP
Thai everything except the MD11


About every 20min or so averagly, you get a plane there, not too bad, weatherwise condition is lot better than Bangkok, without haze and pure soft blue sky.

THIS PHOTO IS FAKE.
I'm 99,9% sure.
just compare it http://www.airliners.net/open.file/312682/L/
and this one http://www.airliners.net/open.file/183755/L/
both photos show what is supposed to be the same rwy end (RWY27) and on IL96 photo you can also see "27"
But now compare:

1) totally different shape at the end of runway - on 757 landing you clearly see that rwy extends to the left and right for 180 degrese turn and lineup, but on IL96 photo rwy extends only to only side.

2) count the white parralel markings just before digits "27" - on IL96 photo there are 6+6, but on 757 photo it is 5+5

3) the shadow from IL96 is not realictic enough

4) VASI approach lights supposed to be around 200 meteres from each other, while on IL96 takeoff you can see them quite close.

This is nice fake but still fake.

I'm asking the questions. Even forget 3) and 4) that's could be due to lens and lighting - but 1) and 2) are still valid. Explain me - and I will take my words back.

There are 2 years between those shots. And in 2 years there could have been some construction on the Rwy. Think about it

Sam is an excellent photographer.

I don't think he would ever do things like this. His pictures are already so good that he doesn't need fake pictures to be popular.

Like Peter says, maybe construction works or so?

Frederic

Copyright violation, then?

Q #1 and #2: ever heard about construction work? From time to time buildings, train stations, roads and even airports change shape. The AY B757 approach photo was shot in 2001, it's 2003 now...

Give it up before your respect rating decreases from zero to some negative value.

Skymonster,
Huh, is that the normal way of discussion here to press others relaying on "rating" and asking "show us your photos" when you have nothing to explain the valid points.... "Gimme a break!" - I don't need respect of such people... I'm politely asking for explanations and will take my words back if I'll got them.

p.s. just seen your reply in nearby topic on the same shot.. could you imagine that someone is not wasting time here to earn "rating" but earning money doing the real things? I've been a quite frequent visitor here some time ago, but not the last year... You can trace my messages, dates and topics I'm participated at..........

B744F,

You have got your answers about the end of the runway!

...now...

I believe that many people here, including me, wonder how you can see if a photo is real or not, when you've admitted not being a photographer?

I am waiting for the answer of yours...

Nope, the answers are not right - even if there was a construction work recently it hasn't changed the rwy end config and you can see current official chart I've provided.
OK. that's enough. the truth is somewhere else, leaving you all now for a while.

OK B744F, you asked...

I'm not even going to check into the issues you raise to justify your claim that the photo is fake. I don't need to. There are some people who contribute photos to this site who in my opinion simply wouldn't risk their reputation by doing such a stupid thing as faking a photo like that. Sam is one of those people. Instead of making accusations in this forum, why not ask Sam about the picture? If, having insulted his integrity, he's still prepared to talk to you, I suspect he'll explain the photo to you.

Andy

PS: Notice I underlined the words "in my opinion", and yes, it is only my opinion. However, given that I am a screener here, my opinion does have some impact on the acceptance process, albeit not that I screened this picture.

B744F,

Firstly, look on Sam's (very nice photo) and check how the left border stretches across the runway markings.

Secondly, now look on the other photo and understand why you can't see the turning area, because it's too far left to be seen in Sam's picture.

Then you can decide whether an apology is suitable or not.

Staffan

B744F,

do you lack the need of attention!?
For someone who can't state anything about yourself in your profile, I put very little value in what you write.
What are you occupation for ex.? It sure must be something involving pro. photo, right?
Or do you maybe design and build rwy's?
Or is it simply that you had to get everyone started cause Sam got alot of credit for a great photo?

"The truth is out there".



When in doubt, flat out!
