Dgrin Mini-Challenge #268 - Airplane views - RESULTS!!
Comments about the photos, then the results. I think I ended up picking my choices by my reaction to each photo. A lot of very nice shots, especially from plane windows that so many times have streaks and scratches. Thanks for all the entries!
@JAG - Really nice variation of cloud layers over the snow topped peaks in Somewhere over Washington State & the oval window through the haze is a cool bonus. Also like the layout and surreal look of the Idaho crop circles
@DavidRGillespie - Love the Challenges of a baggage handler title and the shot is great with an awesome backdrop! Really like the composition in Goodbye Snow, the funky circle above the wing and the curve in the road reaching toward the wing, nice.
@slpollett - Really like the plane flying into the hazy sunset over Washington DC, and the clouds are great in the Orlando trip shot.
@moose135 - Really nice shot up Charlotte, NC, and WOW - awesome refueling shots! Not a perspective many get to see.
@GrandmaR - Thames in England - So many neat things about this photo! The curve of the river, the London Eye, Big Ben, Waterloo Station, and for being taken from a plane window, looks pretty clear!
@bfluegie - The Greenland photos have an ethereal look to them, and I liked the waterfall shot, it fit in well with the theme. But the Hanalei Bay shot is also a beautiful photo!
@sapphire73 - Nice mountain shots! & I know it wasn’t an entry, but I do like your last shot, with the focus on the window ice, nicely captured!
@pegelli - Love all the ships - definitely a flock! And the alps - a great moody shot, beautiful!
@sarasphotos - Love the feel of Infinity - the texture of the water with all the white caps, the foggy clouds. And the border shot has some interesting shapes, nice.
