Watch out, don't touch the vertical tail of Dornier Do 27 (Reg: EC-CHN) at the extreme end!


No tocar

a7 + Voigtländer Nokton 75/1.5 VM


Instead of the usual standard aircraft shot, went for a closer, more abstract, approach. Hope you somehow like the result.

I find it more minimalist than abstract, but a fine shot indeed. The light negative space on the left with the very vague oof "ghosts" is a perfect complemet to the very detailed and textured bit of the aircraft on the right.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

It works very well in my opinion. But I wouldn't have thought that this is the part of a plane!

I like it, and suspected it was an airplane (based on the rivets).
Only remark is that in this case the font size of your name is a bit too big IMHO

It's a cool shot, but I'm having a hard time reconciling the "blurry" white with the sharp right hand side. The fact that you can't see any texture in the metal of the white makes the image a bit "difficult" to look at for me. But a cool shot nonetheless.
I detest bugs, especially spiders.

Actually the white OOF part on the left is neither metal nor any part of the Do 27 plane
What you see is simply the blurred background of the hangar and its windows. The red part is the very end of the vertical tail and the aircraft - hence blur(no texture) vs. texture

Man that totally changes my perspective on the shot! I look at it completely differently now. Thanks for the explanation, very cool!
