Remark Photographer
N9323Z / 483514/F/U (cn 32155) Highlight to the night photoshoot was this B-17 Flying Fortress. An absolutely spectacular experience seeing every seam and rivet glimmer from the floodlights while fulfilling nearly every sense of the human experience. Taking part in such an event was a personal sentemental journey & I'm proud to have had the chance to capture this stunner in such ideal conditions.

Imagine the rumble ...

As someone who just loves the B-17 in all her variants, this photo takes my breath away. No words....

A visitor from Canada posted Tue October 16, 2012:
Thanks everyone for the kind words! Love every one of them. White balance was on auto as I had no time to play with the diff settings as the engine runtime was only 7-10mins so I was too busy getting as many properly composed photos as possible. This one was about 2-3 second exposure about F7.1 or F8.

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 28, 2012:
Perfect exposure and especially nice job on the prop blur.

A visitor from Germany posted Fri September 28, 2012:
WOW, this is one hell of a night shot which would deserve more than only 5 stars! Well done is just not enough to describe this unique picture!

A visitor from Germany posted Fri September 28, 2012:
The wet apron helps a bit.. lighting, shutter speed ..everything fits nicely .. you can almost hear the sound of the engines

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 28, 2012:
Not sure how to adequately compliment this photograph. it is brilliant on every level. gorgeous.

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 28, 2012:
WOW. What a 50-star stunner! THE best ground shot of the B-17 EVER.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri September 28, 2012:
I love all that night reflections and propellers rotations. Beautiful.

A visitor from - posted Fri September 28, 2012:
Fantastic, 5 stars without a doubt! Very sharp and great sense of action with the prop circles.

A visitor from - posted Fri September 28, 2012:
Very impressive photo of this true pice of history!

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 28, 2012:
Fantastic capture! I have an hour logged flying this aircraft and it was the most magical experience of my life. Thank you for sharing this!

Congratulations for the picture and thank you for sharing!

A visitor from Spain posted Fri September 28, 2012:
What?! Only 5-stars max. score? No way. I'll give this shot a DOUBLE 5*. Spectacular and beautiful, great job, Mr. Kim. The sound of those revving engines must have been music to your ears. Question, were B-17's able to do night sorties?

A visitor from - posted Fri September 28, 2012:
Great picture, what an awesome opportunity you had there. Love the full prop discs. Did you use auto colour correction or did you go manual colour temperature (Kelvin) settings? awesome, awesome.

A visitor from - posted Fri September 28, 2012:
Awesome picture! PC vote from me! 5* Ilias
