About the Image(s)

I thought I would submit something a little different this month. The image started out as one of the frames of a 360-degree panorama I took over my neighborhood from my Mavic Pro a few years ago. This is something I can’t do anymore. Somewhere a long the line, my home fell into a no-fly zone – it was right at the edge originally. I then superimposed what I believe is an F-15. I did not do too much to either image, except to use the new Masking tool in Lightroom Classic to brighten up the jet a bit.

I like your photo. The jet seems a little to close to make this photo believable. I also like the angle of the road. I am waiting for the bomb sound.
Nice shot,

Thanks, Alex. Actually, my intent was not to make the scene realistic, but to show the jet low enough to see its details.

When I first looked I thought you were flying too close to an airport, and a military one at that!

It's an F-18. The tails on an F-15 are vertical while the F-18s are tilted out as on this plane.

The road does create a nice leading line to the plane   Posted: 05/08/2023 14:43:45

Hi Don, I too thought "where is he flying?" I think you have created a very interesting image and I get your intent that it not look too realistic. I think that it is fun to do things out of the ordinary once in a while.   Posted: 05/10/2023 11:16:35

Haha, you scared all of us! I also was shocked seeing how close you were to the plane and how close the plane was to the houses. You should have pasted some frightened people on the road :)   Posted: 05/11/2023 10:12:48

Very different… it really does look real, and scary! I love how this month has a few 'fantasy' photos…   Posted: 05/24/2023 09:12:21
