A C17 Prescreen...

Thu Feb 21, 2008 6:49 pm

I've never really taken pics of military heavies before...I was wondering on the merits of this angle....and is it good enough for the DB?

Hi,
the angle is very nice but especially the undercarriage is too dark and it also looks a bit soft to me around the nose.

Hi. I personally really like the motiv and angle. But I don't think the quality is good enough. The rear wheels look quite soft to me and the image is quite dark (the bottom part of the body and the wings in particular).

Thanks for the feedback....The weather hasn't been that nice around here for the last couple of days (fog) which really doesn't help. Guess I'll have to go down to Brize and try again. (What a shame  Wink )

I can see what you're saying now...lots of soft areas jumping out at me  Smile
