Ah something refreshing! The first three shots seems to remind me of the natural world in fact....#1 is like looking into the centre of a flower...#2 the eyelets of a fly...and so on! Duno why, but it just hits me this way.
Thanks, nyxx88 and huaiwei, for your encouraging comments
nyxx88: Sorry that i omitted putting captions to the pics. You must be very well-informed to be able to guess what the parts are. For those who may not be able to guess:
#1 was shot from the tail end of an F16
#2 is a shot of some of the armaments of an Apache helicopter
#3 is a shot of some of the armaments of an F16
#4...err...i don't know what the thing is...sorry :embrass:
#5 shows a bundle of relief supplies packed by air movement personnel.
huaiwei: Yes, now that you mentioned it, they do look like parts of plants indeed! #2 looks like part of a lotus to me. You have a very refreshing way of looking at images.
Shel: You can do a variable zoom with any lens that has a zoom ring. Try it - it's fun
Nice shots chromodynamics! :thumbsup: I like #1. How did you get so close?
For shot #2, was the shot taken handheld? Instead of zooming out, did you also try zooming in? Would like to see the different effects.
More info if you're interested:
#2 is the Hydra 2.75 inch Folding-Fin Aerial Rockets (FFAR) used by the Apache.
#3 is the ammo belt of the 20mm Vulcan cannon.
#4 is... erm, a runway beacon or light? From the rust and plant growth, doesn't seem to be in use anymore. :dunno:
Thanks, Singer high and jaredflo, for viewing and for your encouragement
Singer high: The jets were on display without any barriers around them. Photo #2 was done handheld... i did not try variable zoom inwards though. Thanks for the information you provided - i shall be using it to name the photos correctly after i'm done with post-processing all my RSAF Open House shots.
jaredflo: Thanks for the compliment. It never occurred to me that i can see things differently from the guys
Of all the RSAF Open House pics in this forum, this is refreshingly different and simply the best!
I like ...
No2 - for the wonderfully done variable zoom,
No3 - for the excellent DOF,
No4 - the composition is great, it gives the feeling of a weathered guard performing its duty faithfully,
No5 - the perspective is simply stunning and with the sky correctly exposed, dont think many people are able to think of such a composition in the first place.
Thanx for opening up a whole new dimension of RSAF Open House to us!
