Piper Super Cub on takeoff.
Is the subject too centered in the frame?
too centered in the picture? looks like he is too centered for that hillside. did he make it? :shock:
I think that hillside is farther than it may appear. It looks to me to be at least a quarter mile beyond the plane. It's a neat shot. It is is perhaps a little too centered from a photgraphy perspective. You don't want to lose the far mountain range by cropping from the left. Why not try cropping some of the foreground so that tha plane is about 1/3 from the bottom and 2/3 from the top. The ground underneath doesn't add that much to the picture I don't think.
Is this Alaska?
drdan is correct. just after this photo the plane banked to the left and cleared the mountain side with ease.
this is in wrangell st. elias national park in alaska.
thanks for the cropping ideas. i'll give them a try.
I would put the aircraft to the right of the frame. You will see it heading at the hill but also see the escape route towards the open sky and mountain. If you get the chance go for a ride in the Cub. Much more fun and exciting than the big commercial birds. Nice shot.
