The light reflecting off the wreckage is tremendous , the textures combined with the light makes the wreckage appear very solid and substantial.
I do like that light revealing all the rivets on the side and making it look like a piece of armour dropped by some giant.
Cheers both. I had to fiddle about with it, should’ve taken longer over trying to get the light right, was too lazy to put the polarising filter on.
Re; the wreckage, you notice that panel has been missing for years, but in my head I thought this was more complete as well.
amazing stuff. You’ve caught this shot perfect with the gorgeous scenery as a backdrop
I think the texture brings a great ambiance to the image
Agree the light on this Ian is fabulous… when you stand at the side of what little there is there… you make it look quite substantial.
sad story but a great photo ian
Such impressive work here man…………….what about those rivets……………..Beautiful Ian!!!
this is an amazing shot
Big bit of plane right enough, as for the rivets…plenty of them and shown of nicely in the capture.
i would really, Really like this shot were it not for the texture effect on the sky, this would be the book cover-
many thanks everyone.
Sorry you’re not keen on the texture. If honest, I am going to have to go on a texture diet, I struggle to resist using them now. In this instance, it covered a washed out distant landscape. Had I got it right in the first place, I may not have needed the texture…
Eerie shot, like the light on that fuselage.
You’ve managed to get this balanced with the textures and detail – nice one Ian
Wonderful detail and textures here Ian
I really love the textures here Ian, and the light on all those rivets.
Nice job! Love the light on those rivets. TBH though, I think I prefer the original.
