It's quiet here on TL these days... I hope to be able to post more myself again now.

A GoPro shot of the mega Airbus A380 during the 'blue hour' of dawn. I used a little bit of Snapseed to edit, and BD Sizer to resize. The GoPro is a handy little camera, and along with my Iphone I don't really need to carry my largefr DSLRs around anymore; unless I'm going to do some serious shooting...

Hi David,
This is a fantastic POV showing the enormity of the airbus.The wide angle curvature has also created an eye catching scenario.Strong contrast between your subject and BG has really enhanced your details, great camera work on this artistic presentation. Full marks for sure.

Hi David

I have to totally agree with Erwin. Maybe the sky has some noise, but possibly that's my old eyes.

that's really nice shot. I think you used a wide angle lens and that wasn't a rectilinear lens and it makes this photo more amazing.

Hello David

Like the shot. What are what appears to be 2 large doors between the nosecone and front landing gears? Interesting.



Its a wonderful shot and thank to share with us this type of rare pics.

Amazing perspective. It seems to be an ensemble of two or three photos.


Bom dia David,
Shooting a giant like this is not hard for a
Artist your size.
Is difficult to be original and creative. That you got it.

Hi David, getting a bit of headspin looking up from that close to the ground...Mind you thats close to the normal view for us shorter legged varieties..The camera really handled the light well.Its on my wishlist for the beach..Fiona

I am just in love with passenger airplanes / jetairliners. They just amaze me. You should post more in the future.

Hello David, from your point of view we get a great impression of the size of this machine.
'Blue hour' was the perfect time for the shot, it makes a wonderful bg and complements the subject.
Your depth of field is astonishing.
Regards Jean.
