Only One Allowed, Which Of These Three?

Mon Feb 11, 2008 9:00 pm

Sometimes I struggle to get decent pictures during a flight, and sometimes I get too many good ones I can't decide which one to submit! These are from a recent BOS-PHL hop and only one is allowed per take off (note: they are not properly edited! just resized and normalized):







I like the first one best, but would anyone try to persuade me to submit one of the others? BTW, how the Hell do I level the first one?!?!?! Is leaving it as is, level-wise, OK?

Thanks!

Tony

Hi Tony,

I'm not into window shots much, but #2 is very nice I tink.

#3 shows the whole airport layout, but is not as clear.
#1 would need a lot of CW rotation I think, though I've no idea how much.

Hey Tony, that looks like the US Airways E-190, which one was it?  Wink My vote goes for #2.

Hey guys,

First, thanks for taking the time to write!!! I very much appreciate your opinion!

I can definitely edit it to a.net standards I think. My only worry is that there will be too much sky and, if I crop tightly, I'd need to chop off large chunks of the runways...

Yes, you're right. And quite a lot of it too!

Hi Dan! Close! It was N124HQ, which is an Republic Airlines E175SR...

Hi Tony,

My preference also goes to number 2!

I would love to know, however, how to level your number 1 shot... Maybe upload it, and have it accepted or...have it rejected with possibly a personal note how to rotate it  Smile Just joking, I think it looks good!

PS: How do you manage to get always clean windows? (or should I ask who cleans them for you???)

Best regards,

Walter

For me #1 is the most interesting, #3 would be the best one, but the wing is a bit distraction. #2 is neutral. I say #3.

Yeah, me too. I wish one of the screeners shared their wisdom on this... I played around with it for a bit and maybe really heavy CW rotation might help. But, this will make any crop unworkable... Oh well, I might have to suck it up and let that one go... Sigh. Sad

It's just luck. Some airlines are better in terms of keeping windows clean than others. For example, I had very few problems with windows on LH; they are very clean most of the time. In the US, they are awuful most of the time (I've given up even trying to get shots from AA or UA B757s...). But this time I lucked out, as the plane was quite new (it was delivered less than two months before my flight) so the windows were still clean, and no inconsiderate a.netters with big lenses had scratched them!  Smile  duck

Still my favorite...
