What Do You Think Of This One?

Mon Aug 28, 2006 2:22 am

Just got back from LGW where I've been trying some different angles with a different lens. What do you all think of this one?

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...dy/N772ANAMERICANB777LGW270806.jpg

I'm not sure about the levelling, I've tried to level it using the car park behind. Also, maybe there's a little to much haze in the background? Although, that could be down to the long focal length of the prime.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Simon,

I think it doesn´t look so level. Why not level with the landing gear? Its a valid vertical part of the airplane. In that case, the landing gear levelling might need a little CCW rotation.

Cheers!

Very nice shot! I like it very much.

About levelling, I feel it might need a bit CCW rotation. But not quite sure.

Nice shot. I agree it needs CCW rotation. I would rotate until the main gears are horizontally on the same level.

I agree with Lanas and Bubbles, it needs some CCW rotation. It also has some grain in the darker areas and a few jaggies, especially around the cockpit windows.

Thank you guy's.

I'll try and level it tomorrow, using the landing gear as a focus point. Apart from that, everything looks ok?

Just want to be 100% sure, it's one of my favourite photos for sure!

Regards,
Simon.

Personally I think you have cropped it a bit tight at the top as well.

Nice, just looks like it could go for one very slight pass of USM.

Hi all,

Any better? I've rotated it CCW, and given it a slight kick of USM.

I don´t know. Looks a bit blurry to me, specially on the cockpit and the forward landing gear.
Better with the level, I think.

Cheers!
