    DP1 Plane Views

    A few window shots using the DP1. The small size lets you easily pull it from your bag when the terrain looks interesting.

    Thanks, Wayne. One of the few consolations of traveling by air is being able to snap photos of ever-changing landscapes.

    Here's another one.

    Wow, what a great shot! I get dizzy just looking at that. I take it the chute opened up without incident.

    Thanks, Will.

    Arashm, yikes that's some view!

    Wayne, if you go, be sure to book a window seat and bring your camera on-board. You never know what you may see out of the window.

    Re: DP1 Plane Views

    Thanks, Arashm. The desert shots seem to work especially well in black and white.

    In case anyone is wondering... yes, I do tend to sit in roughly the same place each time. I prefer the back of the plane to increase the odds I'll be able to stow my bag on-board. Not sure why I settled on the left side. Turns out it's a good position for aerial views that include the wing off to the side.

    These images are beautiful, they would be fantastic printed large.
    curious how you get the slight warm tone, reminds me of the old days when you ran a b+w print through kodak bleach for a few seconds and then through the stinky sepia toner for a few seconds to get that hint of warmth as apposed to full sepia, (wow that feels like it was ages ago...)
    I also like the sharp drop-off to black on top of the images, are you shooting Raw or Jpeg if I may ask.
    sigh you people on this forum are going to make me buy a DP1 or 2 aren't you
    Thank you so much for sharing.

    I'm using a split tone (two color) process. Each tint gets a 10-percent saturation level so the colors don't take over the image. Stumbled into it through trial and error.

    I shoot everything in RAW.


    The same processing applied to a photo that looks up at the sky.

    Two more. All of these were shot with ISO 100.

    I'm surprised so many came out so well. It's testament to the DP1's image quality and the incredible landscapes you can see on a cross-country flight.

    I especially like the second one. What camera were you using? The lens looks wide-angle.

    Yes
    it's actually the Canon S60
    it had a 28mm lens but it was mushy in the corners.
    it was also very big to fit inside my jump suite so I only had it for a short time.
    I should go see if I can dig out some of the cloud shots from a few years back.
    thanks
