Chuong, this is pretty impressive when you consider it is wide open. Any thoughts on the f2 versus the f2.8 ais?

Ronny, the OOF areas are amazing in this shot, but my question has to do with the snail. How do get these guys to sit up and pose like this?

Ray, you certainly brought the right lens for this topic. I never knew the ass end of the shuttle had tiles on it too - guess it makes sense when they start the descent going backwards, and nose down. All that engineering to enter the atmosphere at 17,000 miles per hour. You'd think Virgin's solution would be so much more practical and safe. Great photos...thanks!

Thank you Ronny, John and James. What a great place to see and visit. Here is another photo of the rear of the plane. A person can almost stand in the exhaust.

Amazing series Ray, wow you can get really close to one. Had a look again re: James' comment on the tiles. Yeah, that is pretty awesome. Odd enough, it made me think of the Destroyers in Star Wars... heh

Thank you Chin. The whole experience was pretty amazing. Being that close and seeing the shear size of this shuttle was pretty awesome! You pretty much need the fisheye to get it all in one photo

Ray, super images of the shuttle. Interesting to get to see inside too since the one at Kennedy Space Center is open. The one here at the Dulles museum isn't so I had never gotten a look inside.

Kevin, it was very nice to see you get an opportunity at your new workplace! All the best!

Here's a quick one with the 13.5cm 3.5 with PN-11 (about 52.5mm). Circular OOF highlights at f/5.6 with the old 9-bladed aperture.

Ron - Congrats on the 85, I'm glad it turned out for you. You just never know about ebay.

30cal - Very nice introductory image. It would be great if you added your name to your profile so we could get to know you. I'll assume these were taken with a Nikon camera?

Dean - Thanks, yes, it was Jed and I think this one will fill his boots as it were.

John - Love the second one, our oldest did this exact same thing, still does.

Ray - More great shots. That must of been quite fun to shoot there.

Samy - Beautiful color with the red flowers.

That is a great series of pix on the Space shuttle Ray .....

Some real filmic images there ....

You could almost step on to the fins and float alongside in a weightless fashion.

Great images

Steve

lovely Chin (which lens?). Tripod? I guess you had to get him to stand still for you.
