[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A bit personal this image as this is how I am feeling the last few days, pack and fly away far far away. Not quite sure what type of plane this is but I am sure Eleu our plane specialist will be able to ID this one.

Bom dia Erwin,
This is a beautiful challenge to our photographer of aircrafts, Eldancer1, i.e, Eleu, and more capable than I in these subject.
But I want to tell you that is a great goal and a hors concours shot.

Thanks for the confidence but I'm not sure what type of plane this is, it looks like a Canadian built aircraft. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Very neat capture, a feel of unreal with the props looking as if they are not moving.



Super catch!
Very good timing and balance, I like this great blue sky too.
When I photograph a plane, it looks like an m&m's floating in the sky.

Hi Erwin
Good capture, good light and well chosen settings.


Looking at the props its hard to tell whether this plane is flying or gliding. Would SA be south african airlines? Nice clear capture with good colour saturation and contrast against the blue sky.

Plane is sharp. Colour and saturation is well balanced.
Unfortunately also some negatives - everything looks very static, use a lower shutter speed to give some motion in the props (even if you do it in pp work). There are no reference points to indicate landing or taking off (I assume landing). I thing you need a bit more space in front of the plane to move into.

Hi Erwin,

The aircraft is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the détails and the colors of the SA Express DHC-8 in flight. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
