Some Twilight Pictures - Worth A Try?

Fri Aug 10, 2007 3:40 am

Actually most probably not!  Wink
I was experimenting a little at the airport under some twilight/overcast sky late evening, and these pics are (the best) result. Most probably they will never make it to A.net, but nevertheless I wanted to share them with you - who knows, maybe one of you has a good idea how to fix them!

- Aerolineas Argentinas 737 landing. This one is almost a silhouette, shot Av f/4.0 1/50 sec @ 200 mm


- Chilean Air Force only tanker 707 (looks blurry), shot Av f/4.0 1/40 sec @ 84 mm


- Aerolineas del Sur 737 (looks too dark), shot Av f/4.0 1/125 sec @ 122 mm


- Cielos del Peru DC-10 (also too dark), shot Av f/4.0 1/60 sec @ 73 mm


Any comments appreciated!  Smile

I'd go with all, not most.

Shoot them earlier in the evening.

That would be too easy, wouldn't it!

Andrés

707 and AR shots are blurry. The Cielos and Aerolineas del Sur are better, I´d give them a try, maybe. Cielos one is jagged in places, beware of that. Have you used any noise reduction program?

Good luck with them.  Smile

Cheers
