[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From far, this picture looks like a view from the space but from near it's actually not that far from the ground. I purposely tilted my camera to certain extent of degrees and this is the result. :-D This picture was captured above the region of Thailand while on the way from Malaysia to Thailand on Airasia.

P.S. Did 2 workshops, take a look at it and gimme your opinion. Cheers

Interesting POV! You are right....when I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a view from space and wondered how you managed to capture it! Thank you for sharing.

Hi Chern,
A good aerial shot of Thailand. Gorgeous clouds and sky. Good job and best wishes.

hello chern wern, this is a very good shot, with such an angle, it looks like part of the surface of a big sphere, like earth...good clarity :)

Hi Cherm, Excellent (almost) stratospheric view. Nonna is correct it looks like you are one of the first civilians to take that trip. The angle certainly helps this look like a space view. Clarity and colours are good. I plan to try this on next trip, with your inspiration here. Murray.

Great POV. The way you captured the photo gives the impression that you are actually doing a espace flight. TFS

Hi Hong,
This is one of the most creative photographs on the site. Excellent use of POV to create the illusion of being taken from space. Well thought out and executed. Cheers, Todd

nice one hong!! you've got a creative photographers eye.
like the strong blue in this picture and the DOF is just right.
hasta la proxima!

You tricked me here! I thought it was really taken from outerspace! Great POV. TFSTP
Freddie :)
BTW, I like all including the workshop but the actual photo you posted is my fave.

congratulations! cool.

PS. Image #2 is even better :)

Hello Chern
A really majestic scene. The position diagonal of clouds, with an inclined horizon, is too attractive and original. Excellent work.

LOL Just fantastic. This in itself is a workshop in POV. Many TFS!!

Hi Hong,

I kinda prefer the saturated version. This one is a bit too plain, after looking at the saturated one...


nice idea on this photo.. the angle is creative and the feel is cool... certainly a special and unique shot from the airplane..becoz i saw most ppl try to capture the wings on the airplane..that made it looks so lame..haha

nice compo and good exposure and sharpness !

Great capture, Chern. Good POV and excellent sharpness. Love your angle - very interesting. Well composed and presented. TFS

:D tomorrow

Superb Chern!!
Flying , best feelings of all..
