Looking Back

By Ploughman
Looking back from starboard side of Lancaster cockpit. (It`s a long way from the ground and it does not pay to look down).

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

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!

Sorry I meant top LH corner.

Thank you.

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 !!!!

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

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.
