Default B-17

I used my 12-24mm wide angle lens to capture enormous size of the tail and horizontal stabilizer of this B-17 ("Aluminum Overcast") during her recent visit to Lunken Airport in Cincinnati. It was nice to be out on the ramp and get up close.

Here's a more conventional angle.

Nice shots, I thought it would be bigger, larger for some reason.

....she is a beautiful doll Jehan. I last saw the Aluminum Overcast when it came to Arlington, TX in 2008 & 2009.

If interested this is a link to my files from those visits ==> http://tinyurl.com/7nm55ak

Very nice series Bob...you caught her in some beautiful lighting. I'm envious that you were able to get up close to where she was taking off and landing as well. I got some nice shots of her taxiing, but none of her taking off and landing since the runway in use was on the far side of the airport.

....it was a perfect weekend for the photography, I used my Olympus ZD 50-200 (100-400 eq @ 2.8/3.5) for most all the shots but for the inside where I used an Olympus C7070WZ and Oly FL36 flash which worked well in the tight & close quarters.

A fun weekend for sure, thanks for looking.

Jehan,

Prefer the second picture. 50/75 mm gives that special short tele look. Don't know why exactly but I get a "miniature effect" impression; as if a boy was playing with miniature figurines.

I like that picture

Thanks for your comments T. Sometimes I get tired of shooting profiles and try some different angles. I see what you mean about the "miniature effect".
