Trip with the Saab 340 (3 of 3)
This is shot from my window seat. The propeller engine in combination with the sun, clouds and green fields on the ground was wonderful. The plane flies on a height between 4 and 7 km high. Luckily the window was not too dirty. I took more images when the sun was more at the right but unfortunately it revealed all the dirty spots on the window.
TECH-INFO: trying to go as wide as possible with my lens (so just before seeing the window edges) I shots 5 pictures, each a stop difference. This was really necessary to capture the high contrasts. After all, the sun was shining into my camera while the propeller view was in the shadow. The shutter speed of 1/400 was about right to nicely show the propeller blades (some experimenting was needed). Because of the multiple pictures and HDR merging you see more blades than in reality. Still, I like the effect. After tone-mapping I worked on the contrasts and brightness of the clouds and plane engine to make all details visible. The image view pretty much resembles what I saw in reality.
