I think so Roger not sure as I was given a couple but that does ring a bellGreat camera shot Alan, nice lighting and composition, I remember the little aftermarket red button on the shutter release, had one on my Nikon FE were they called a soft shutter release?
ThanksAbstract: Nice and colourful and a good idea fo the theme.
Showcase: Two good shots and I really like the one of the aircraft. Being limited to a shot with one available focal length has produced something rather different. and it's really well framed in the landscape around it.
Thanks Tim it does look further away than you think but I think I only managed about 3 shots before it was directly above meBlimey, the 23mm certainly gives a different perspective. Knowing what sitting at the end of a runway looks like when large planes are landing, I would have put you 1/4 of a mile out and a good 300 foot clearance from that shot.
I'm not really an aviation enthusiast (quite like air-shows like Wings and Wheels (rip)) though I have been known to take the odd aircraft shot when I'm bored, as I'm so close. I would expect you'd get a lot of love for that shot on aviation forums.
not a fan either it was an opportunity to good to miss and I don’t think it would work as a close up it’s nice to have a bit of the landscape in the frameI'm not really a fan of aircraft images but that one really stands out, great angle
It could be a photo of Jupiter.
Considering the limited camera options, I think you do a good job. I like the central positioning of the plane.
