Lovely colors and texture in the sky on this one, Leo. Any chance you can produce an image that is framed in between the final and the original pano? Would love to see how that looks.

How about this crop Gero?

Lovely, Leo!

But why are there a bunch of F-117's in the sky?



I could tell you that they are "Night Hawks", but that would be a tough pill to "Swallow"

Leo your pano is beautiful! I'm assuming forgiveness was granted. Sheila is so used to it she has added several time zones related to me specifically:

Photographic Time: Incalculable to any degree, but has income attached so forgiveness is generally unnecessary. She roughly equates this time zone with the time it takes to watch grass grow, and views it as being just about as exciting.

Airport Time: Equally incalculable, but carries with it a myriad of labor related penalties prior to forgiveness.........uh, really acquiescence would be a better description.


Thanks Jim!

Since the majority of my photo time is not attached to income, I can relate to the the labor related penalties!

Ha! I've probably told this before, but it reminds me of the first time I came the USA, and I had the window seat about 40,000ft over the north west US as we flew towards Texas. I looked out of the window just in time to see a loose formation of four B-2s fly past, about 10,000 feet below. That was quite a welcome :-)


On my first flight into the US, a pair of Super Hornets flew by some distance below us with their lights blinking against a darkening sky. They looked like they were just gliding past at an easy pace. That was nice

Nice indeed

Leo, that last sky shot is lovely, and I really like the tractors, too. How long did you have to lie in wait to get the last swath of green?

The interview is definitely intriguing.

I'll bet that is an interesting read Laura.


I did a very large scale pano last year, using my regular tripod and three way pan/tilt head, then used Microsoft ICE to do the stitching. One of the results was good enough to win an honorable mention at a local contest last year, along with another photo I'd done. I would go, shoot anywhere from 600-1000 shots, and after stitching, end up with a 250MB JPEG.

Ok Guys and Gals,

What opinions do you have re: pano techniques. Do you need special heads, special pano equipment? I don't have a ball head, probably should invest in a good Gitzo version. I have several assignments coming up where a very hi res pano might be a great addition.

Leo,
That is just right not too wide, but it nicely captures a broader range of lighting and more of those beautiful cloud formations.

A BIG thank you to the Arizona Aviation Photographers leadership and the entire NAF El Centro PAO staff for putting together another awesome photo call, your hard work is always appreciated! The weather was not typical SoCal chamber of commerce Wx, no matter, I had great time. I even got lucky and released the shutter at an appropriate time or two. This is the Medal of Honor F-18 from VMFAT-101 - the Sharpshooters out of Miramar.

Flight of a different sort..?


Definitely an interesting topic that hits home. I guess I'm one of the 80-90 percent who don't remember anything. I was "gone" for almost 3 and a half minutes when I was given a drug during pre-op that I turned out to be allergic to, and it stopped my heart. Last thing I remember is telling the anesthesiologist I felt funny, then waking up the next day in ICU with a breathing tube down my throat. I wonder if I would have remembered anything if they could have talked to me right after it happened.

Either way, it definitely makes you think about what comes after!

Speaking of pano's, Fred just posted a link to this 320 gigapixel pano of London, shot with 4 7D's fitted with 400 f/2.8 lenses and 2xTCs. Over 48,000 frames were used to create it.

BREAKING!

Flightglobal are reporting in the past 10mins that all F-35 variants are grounded due to a crack found in the blade of a LP turbine blade in an F135 engine that powers them.

Very nice capture of the RAF Apache Jay.

I struggle in getting decent images of Osprey and their sloooooow rotors. I definitely don't have the talent for making solid captures like Jay. Gratefully, the late afternoon cloud cover at El Centro came to my rescue. I was able to capture some reasonable rotor movement and I got very lucky in catching the red strobe as this V-22 began it's roll on take-off. Definitely better to be lucky...

Jay, are you using the ND filter on the Cobra? Sky sure is blue with the rotor blur!
