LowLoader Help

Fri May 12, 2006 9:18 pm

Ahoyhoy.

as i was going in to town today this passed me on the other side of the road, which was met with 'bloody hell!' so went home to get the camera, then headed out to the airport. bit of a change anyway.

driver was telling me that he drove it up from blackpool after it had done 1 too many flights off shore and its flying hours were up.

I've uploaded this one because i like to see the whole truck, i would hope it would be ok, motivated. I don't think leaving the whole truck in has made the main subject too small. what do you think. any hopes?

also have this one if that's no use but i don't think its as interesting, but fits more with the rules i guess.

Neither is level, and they have other quality issues, but I don't think it will pass the Motive test.

yes well think it was iso400 because the weather was so bad but what can you do. not going to let a bit of rain stop me taking photos  Smile would you like to be a bit more useful than you were on the leveling front, going against the buildings it looked fine to me  wave

I think it's quite an interesting spectacle, so deserving enough of the database on that front.

That helicopter maker needs to refine their undercarriage design though.  Silly
It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

Gary

I know you were wanting to get something like this  Smile

If it was a 3/4 angle from the front it would be a lot better but this angle is not really flattering  Sad

I am not saying it would be rejected, the other screeners would have to have an input.

Regards

Hi Gary, if you look at the verticals on the red wall, they should be really vertical to make the shot level.

If you check the histogram, you can also improve on the levels (I guess).

Hi Gary. yes, the driver with his little point and shoot got a shot like that  Sad

See them down here at EGNH very often flying back and forth from the rigs  Smile

They always land on taxiway A to make it easier for themselves Big grin
