I am leaving Saturday to photography a family wedding and will be flying for 2 hours to get there. I'd like to pass the time by getting some photos from the plane windows of the landscape below or the clouds as we fly through them. I have thrown several times before but never had a chance to have a window seat so i thought this was a good oppurtunity to try my hand at this.

What are the recommend settings you suggest I try. I am an advance P&S the Fuji S-9100. I have UV and Circle Polizier filters. I am assuming to use the CP filter to cut down on sun glare.

You will definately have to use the circular polarizer to eliminate the window reflections.

Here's one I took of Orlando Airport from 10,000 feet with my Fuji S5100 a few years ago. Didn't use a filter, but probably could have benefitted from a UV. It was a bit hazy, and had to do some pp.

Hope for clear skies (at least one way).

Really really nice picture. I have heard that they don't allow you to have your camera out or on when the plane is taking off as it interfers with the controls in the cockpit. I heard for about the first 12 minutes and last 10 its a no no.

I will experiment and see what I can grab.

No personal electronic devices (including cameras) until the plane reaches 10,000 feet. Taking off and landing.
