Finals to Alderney
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|With yesterday's upload I said that visiting Alderney was a trip down memory lane.. Well, you get there either by boat or air, with air being the most common mode by far. I shot this pic from the seat behind the pilot as we're on short finals to runway 08 in Alderney. The aircraft is an 'Aurigny Airlines' Britten-Norman Trislander... A fairly ugly kind of aeroplane but ideal for island hopping in what can be terrible weather.The flight was also great fun because I used to be one of the guys and gals flying these particular aircraft many years ago, and the island of Alderney was my home base for 2 years. |
With the different strength lighting inside and out I've had to do a little dodging and burning to make the image more 'normal'..

I just love these pics David, because you get to take pics 99.999% of us can't take! This is a superb view here and I love the misty, dreamy look you added to the pic! Very nice!

Good job with the dodging and burning! It has brought the cockpit to life. Nice cabin shot.
Excellent work balancing out the light David.
It's interesting you kept the dash line straight,
but the horizon croooked. I think that was the right way to go.
Excellent color and detail.

Great shot of the cock pit. I love the detail in the front panel. Excellent view of the runway. Nice work.
Nice job - the POV of course is unbeatable, and the PP work is pretty good. :) A little messy in places, have you used layers and masking to any extent? It allows so much more control of that kind of work.
As always ... thank you for sharing your office with us.
You certainly have changed aircraft haven't you. Do you miss these types of flights?
I like the perspective you have chosen in the photo. I like how you have included the pilots shoulder with the "bars" (epaulets...?) Many colorful details. One really appreciates the horizon as a pilot I'm sure. :D
I'm going in the WACO bi-plane tomorrow!! (Hope weather holds)... later, Lisa
