  #228 On the Road Again
Entry 1 of 13
   
 
Up, up and away       ©2020 SteveBee
Panasonic DC-G9       1st place, 164 points
60s, f2.8, ISO 200, 52mm, Manual, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Processed in LR from raw. Adjustments to white balance were made to reduce the heavy yellow color-cast of the sodium vapor lamps. To reduce noise in sky used an adjustment brush set to sharpness -100, noise +100, and texture -100.       Extra Info: I believe I used a 64x ND filter to allow the long exposure time. I was shooting from atop the parking structure which is really the only place I would shoot this kind of image, which limits the compositional opportunities.

    It was fascinating to see the pattern made by the departing aircraft. You did a great job with exposure and timing to achieve such detail. Congratulations.

    Congrats. Loved this from the start. The lights on the horizon add depth to the image as well. Interesting to see the plane level out so soon - it even seems to dip a little. No doubt avoiding other traffic.

    Stunning shot - especially that loop of lights soaring into the night sky.

    very well done, the aircraft wing and red light so well defined
also shows the steep climb and turn of the departing aircraft

    I wonder the sharpness with so long exposure time. Good composition and beautiful colors. First in my favorites.

    Excellent night time airport shot. Lights are beautiful and colorful. The departing plane really finishes this off nicely.

    I have tried to get this type of shot from O'Hare airport and there is no access to high places. I tried once and the police immediately came. Great image and perfect for the theme.

    This is excellent. The pattern of lights from the departing plane is really interesting, and the detail in the rest of the shot is terrific.

    I think you got a better shot from where you were - well done! Love the ribbon of light.
