Hi Kari - no comments yet on this one, which surprises me! I think it's a really cool shot, and an angle we very rarely see; I like that you've gotten a prop plane too, as the movement of the rotors is amazing here. Great sense of both size and speed to the shot, and very well taken. Thanks!

Excellent airplane detail photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity, well chosen tight crop. Well done.
I was flying with this "Eagle Bird" from Miami to Nassau, nice experience.

Great pov of this airplane! Good camera setting, I usually used 1/400 of a second when taking pictures of propeller airplanes. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

The tight frame is putting the aircraft in evidence. The point of view is showing the détails and colour of the American Eagle ATR-72. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colours. Have a nice day.
