Edwards AFB - What a long way to go for an Indian!

Post by boff180 »

Hi guys,

Back in January 2013 I was part of a group that visited Edwards AFB to obtain some photos for some upcoming features on something Electric. Whilst we were there we obviously spent a few hours on the ramps and at the runway.

The weather and light was perfect, we even caught the first Indian C-17 on the ramp fresh as a daisy from the factory!

Here's a few shots from our visit, the "Electrical" shots will appear in a UKAR feature coming soon!

Comments and criticism is always welcome, I've taken some post processing advice on board from Anthony/Umea4 (sorry I haven't replied to your PM) so would appreciate it please. I've noticed these look oversharp at 1024, they are fine are original upload size... I blame Flickr lol.

Thanks

Andy

Look good to me Andy.
As you say slightly too sharp maybe but not that it matters :rock:

Great photos Andy, lovely light, and those F-16s look great in their new scheme. :clap:

One thing though, and this is being extremely picky, is that the photos of the C-17 (#12 and #15) really don't look as good when you crop a little out. Yes I know it's a big plane and sometimes un-avoidable to get the whole aircraft, but the head on photo, to me anyway, jumps out more because it is a whole aircraft in the frame.

Like I said though, extremely picky. :grin:

Jack.

Thanks guys,

That's a personal preference Jack, I personally cannot stand massive amounts of empty space just to fit in a flap or winglet, I'd rather crop it out afterwards.

Beautiful thread Andy

I agree with you on the cropping. Dead space is distracting. I also agree with Agg, I love the Have Glass scheme.
