    Hi All,

    Here is a shot I took at Geneseo NY last Sat.

    I was using a EOS-1N with a 80-200 Kodak 200 Gold No filter, We were at 2000 AGL Cruising at 120 Knots in a shallow right hand turn. I was shooting out of an open window. The plane was about 50 meters off and slightly step down at my 4 O Clock position.

    I would be interested in hearing any comments.

    Hiya CM,

    The image is neat but a little grainy and the right edge seems to be a bit blurred. Not sure what would cause that. I would have either gone in a little tighter on the pilot or pulled back to get the whole plane. As it stands it looks a little indecisive. What speed film did you use or is it digital?

    Congratz for taking really extreme photo, but there is something with colors. Really depresing.

    this shot needs a lot of editing.

    Hi All,

    First the color remember I took this at about 7:30 AM with the Sun to are Left and below, the colors are what the plane is painted as.

    Scott we were in a right hand turn and he had put the plane about 50 Meters off, I try to zoom out but it just didn't work.

    The reason its slightly blurry is I had to rest my arm on window release latch.
    sk8man have a go at it I would be interseted in the results, I tend not to do any photo shop.

    Next Year I plan on going up with their other Camera plane and do some Acro shots.

    Cheers

    modified levels, curves, contrast, saturation, highlight and sharpening.
    also 50% resize and a little crop from the top sky.
