Sunset Aviation Photos and Fish-eyes
Posted By: MightyMike, 03-07-2009, 06:57 AM

Well i got a lot of very nice photos up on this last round of uploads, taking pictures as the sun is setting is quite nice but there is a stretch of these photos 5 planes taken in 14 minutes, a total of 56 photos and from the first tot he last the light in the scene went down a 2 stops... that just goes to show how quickly it was getting dark. you will notice i break from my traditional F8 to accommodate the light loss

anyhow the first 2 photos are my very first photos on airliners.net with the use of the Pentax DA10-17mm F3.5-4.5 Fish-eye... people always wondered how close i get to the planes... lets just say i didn't do a huge amount of cropping at 10mm

A nice series Mike I particualrly like the fisheye shots. I have vision of the Pushing Tin movie with you lying at the end of the runway. Nice series.

Nicely done, Mike! The fisheye gives us an unusual perspective, but my favorite is the Beech 1900. Fantastic light and the reflection of the horizon in the fuselage makes the shot

Great shots as usual, Mike! The pre-sunset light makes them quite special. Thanks for posting.
