I'd have to say that shooting landscapes at 42000 feet through double panes of aircraft "glass" is not the easiest thing in the world. I had a very difficult time balancing the hues in this.

This is about as sharp as I could manage on this three-shot panorama of Calgary.

The earth has a much different geometry from this view-point. I called this one "Zig-Zag".

Yes, there's nothing like seeing the world from an airplane window! The mountains are very nice and your shot of Calgary is good for a postcard!

The zig-zag picture is cool but it that a road or a river? Pretty neat! When I flew over the praries I found it interesting to see the geometric patterns from the fields. Just like a map from gr. 9 geography! ( man, I hated that class)

Cool stuff..............post more!!

Hey! I like those, and I'm really impressed that you could take a three shot pano from a moving plane

Just out of interest what kind of plane were you in (just "big one" of "little one" is about as much info as I can understand BTW on that subject :?)

um... big. :-)Boeing 737, I think.

Thanks, asI said, not an easy job. Airline plexiglass really softens/distorts/colour-shifts your shots. The haze seems really exaggerated as well; I wonder if that is because both the sun and the camera are above the haze.

Cheers,

Rose, I think that is a river or irrigation canal. Neat angles, though. :-)


Here is another pano from one of the ranges in the rockies.

as you can clearly see, this is Alcatraz island, taken on our recent trip to San Francisco in march this year,
I bought this new camera and i am really impressed with the end results,
the focusing and shutter speed are spot on for photography of lanscapes and evening shots,
the P880 is really easy to use and you never miss a shot,

i have a whole collection of pics and will be posting them as we go through,

as a partially sighted person i would like to hear from you with criticism and would like your comments as to your honest opinion of my piccys,

i have really made big efforts in this shot and got the light and focus just right,

rambot,

Thanks for sharing that foto. I've never actually seen Alcatraz. All I can say is-WOW!

I can make a suggestion , though. You should maybe post your work on other forums...

rambot i am new to steves forums as well as yourself, however i noted that you said you were partially sighted! may i suggest you get someone to check your posts before posting them, as i don't think you are getting it quite right at the moment !

however i think this hobby is for every one so maybe get your best shots checked before posting and learn ( as we all will) from your mistakes.

regards bob.
