Help With Westjet 737 Photo (taken From The Air)

Tue Dec 26, 2006 2:32 am

Hi,

I'm far from figuring out how to use my new Nikon D50, however, I took a photo of a 737 which I really like. What's special about it? Well, I don't see too many pics at YYC taken from the air, so I had a chance to snap it while my friend flew the plane over Charlie Taxiway.

I know it's not centered, but I can crop it, what do you think I need to do with it? or does it have a chance in hell of making it to A.net? Big grin

Hey. Hard to tell at that size. Upload a full-size image and we will be better able to advise you.

Nice photo but noise kills it.

The noise and quality would keep it from making it on here. What ISO speed were you on?

Hey, I made an edit. It's not the best quality and the noise is a problem but here it is.

I think 200... (though I'm not sure)

Thank you so much Flugnord. What software did you use to edit it? I don't have any yet, but I plan to buy one. Meanwhile, I have to start plugging away, trying to learn this camera.

How did you take that picture? Flying over the runway in a Cessna?

I was doing a cross country from Saskatoon to Calgary. My friend Andrew from the right seat took control and landed the Diamond Star while I took photos. We were landing on runway 16 at YYC.

In case anyone asks why I let people fly the plane for me, well this guy used to be my flight instructor and he's fully qualified to do it  Smile

Nice picture Vio.
The 737-600 sure looks nice from the air.
Unfortunetly it does have some flaws which would make addition to this site hard or impossible. Sucks that the weather was cloudy that time you shot it.
I say you should keep it for your collection or upload to one of the other sites.
Any pictures during the X-Country flight?
Follow @kimbo_snaps on Instagram or bokimon- on Flickr to see more pics of me and my travels.
