Some Shots From My Trip To The Serbian Air Museum
Lens: 18-55WR & 10-17 Fisheye Camera: K-7 Photo Location: Belgrade, Serbia 
Posted By: Christopher M.W.T, 07-26-2010, 06:29 AM

Spots the remains of a shot down F16 and F-117 Nighthawk (The Serbs have the honour of been the first and only to do this)

Lighting was a bit tricky in this place, I just used natural lighting only, images were shot in RAW and just converted to JPEG in LR3 with no extra PP.

Great series. The folks over at aviation would definitely be interested in seeing this!

I lied about one thing, this particular day I only used the 50-135 and the fisheye for some reason, not the 18-55.

nicely composed series...as an aviation buff.. thanks....
fwiw... i think all of us who have strong nationalistic pride may feel a little put off when viewing the remains (albeit physical) of a fallen soldier/comrade.... it may be a source of pride perhaps for the victor, but not for the fallen.... i'm sure there was no such intent here in this post...

Heh I was about to say... how the heck do you get results like that from the kitlens without any PP? Cool shots anyway, and nice use of the fisheye. I especially like the balcony shots above the plane.

Do not underestimate the 18-55WR kit lens, it's a very very good lens for what it is

Really nice series! I really like the fish-eye shots... nice compostion. I have spent a few hours here at The US Air Force Museum at Wright Patterson Air Force Base... every time I go back, I see something different. It's a great way to spend a day with the camera.... seems like I got a lot of use out of the 50-135, too.

Here's a link to my US Air Force Museum images if you're interested:
