Ah, I`ve made a mistake the lens is a Sigma 10-20mm. Sorry about that.

Richard.

I guess you were trying to get something different here, but I find myself trying to make some sense from the upload even though I know exactly what I am looking at. Perhaps it was your precarious position that made the picture look better at the time and I don't think it has translated itself into the same picture as what you saw around you.

There does seem to be a degree of distortion to the rear tail fin and the other items in the top RH corner. Where you adjusting with 'Transform' - 'Distort'? The sun was obviously getting rather high in the sky towards midday as the reflections on then fusilage top are difficult to deal with and it has left the sky a bit too bright for my particular taste.

Very difficult to apply critique I find, so please bear with me regarding my opinion, others may see it differently. anyway I am sure we will see a lot more from wherever this is in the weeks ahead. I do hope you got down safely.

A unique pov Richard. Nice to have the opportunity to climb up into one of these famous planes. AS Frank says, hard to critique. I like the fact its different. Theres of course a lot of distortion caused by the wide lens, but theres also the fact you were not standing level (presumably) which may tilt the scene. I did try to remove barrel distortion in the mod, reduce glare a little, but thats it. The lens correction removes that partial head in the cockpit, which is either good or bad depending on who it was!



Regards


Willie

Thank you.

Frank,
Thanks for the critique and your analyses - looking better at time of taking picture and final result not portraying what I saw - you are spot on. So, if more opportunities present themselves, how do I make a more truthful image ?
B.T.W I`ve put another one on !!!!

Willie,
Thank you, that ` partial head` is I think, a mascot belonging to one of the crew.

Richard.

Interesting viewpoint but I think you needed a bit more Lanc in frame. A bit of engine, more cockpit. I assume you shot a few versions. If I ever get into a unique position like this I can shoot several dozen frames.
