Air Mobility Command Museum
Lens: DA 70mm f/2.4 Limited, F 50mm 1.7 Camera: K200D Photo Location: Dover, DE ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F2.4

I decided to visit the Air Mobility Command Museum at Dover AFB yesterday, and instead of taking pictures of airplanes, I decided to get a little bit closer and do something different. Enjoy!









The last one I'm really pleased with because it was shot at ISO 1600. The K200D isn't known for being a very good low light camera, and there was almost no ambient light. I'm very pleased with the result. This was also my first time shooting in RAW. Me likey.

Thank you! The F 50mm 1.7 is a great lens. I even like it better than my Limited.

It's an F-106.

This one in particular.

I'm not really an expert on fighter jets, but I enjoyed the visit. And thanks for the kind words.

Fun series. I like the intriguing depth of field on #2, color palette on #3, and the geometrical composition of the last one. Welcome to the world of raw. (it was about time you made the jump ).

Thanks for sharing,

MK
