Somewhere in town some businessmen have put cushions and yellow paint on some old American WWII-era DUKW amphibious transport and here in Singapore we call 'em DUCKtours (I will try one day...just wait :wink: ).

No one else has put amphibious vehicles... :D

Bjorn that photo you got there is simply amazing and it has my vote in a flash.. in my opinion that is just an extremely spectacular photo great colors and the blues that starts from dark all the way to navy blue than to royal then to baby blue.. its just so good!!!

did you use a polarizer filter for this to get those great colors and also to eliminate your reflection in the plane window??

Thank you very much emp93, I felt honoured to read that post.
I did not use a filter for the shot. Don't know what caused the blue sky, maby the altitude (12km). There was a little reflection on the window, but I cloned that away.
Thanks in advance for voting, I appreciate that very much! :D

You'll have to forgive me on this one folks because I'm really struggling to understand why Srg Pictureguy, chose to shoot at Iso 100, 2 seconds hand held, with a camera that can shoot perfectly good at higher Iso's, and with a lens at an aperture of F2.8 no less :roll: Unless you WANTED to have a blurred shot, although I doubt this or you wouldn't have put 'hand held'?

:?

I would suggest that perhaps at the moment of capture, settings were the last thing he was thinking. JUST GET THE SHOT. I have many such moments, and when downloaded, I think...if only I had taken a few extra seconds to set this to that, or that to this..you know. :x

nailed on the head...i dont take shots that early in the morning...i think it was around 4:30am...iso's not one of those things i think about ever...never ever...but im learning, as im sure most are who make the jump from film to digital, with a camera that can even fetch the morning paper, but i had quite a few outtakes so rest assured that im adjusting fire...adapting to overcome and all those other cliches thatll help me get it right the next time

ah right. There's always auto mode :wink: Also, there's an ISO button on the top of your camera, if you see that you arent getting a fast enough shutter speed, the easiest thing to do is 'Iso bump' i.e up the iso. Iso 200 is what I've normally got my D80 set to and the second the sun goes down, a shot like that will need around iso 800.

I'll be sure to download that into my memory banks. And thanks for your interest, and offering a solution. Picture, I'm jealous of your 40D. Dang, and you have all those wonderful "L" series lenses. Nice fit in your hand. My next camera.

You'll have to forgive my criticism, as I also went from using a film SLR to a digital. I however did RTFM, and know about the 'auto mode' for those times when I just gotta 'GET THE SHOT'.

Sorry did you make a submission somewhere L.B? Or is this a case of 'two people posting at the same time'? My criticism was directed at the poster of the shot, not you. I was not 'attacking' the reader in any way, and as someone who's been in the army, I'm sure sgt picture can take a lot more than me telling him to use the auto mode without the need for a defence.

Your comment was you were struggling to "understand." I was reflecting on the possible reasons for a handheld shot at 100 ISO. But I too, am new to this, and I'm sure I will never forget to use "the button" to set my ISO higher if my speed is too low, after this forum. So thanks. :wink:

Any time. 8) Sorry your experience has been so traumatic. I'll be sure to sugar coat it for you next time if you decide to post again :P

I do appreciate your kind consideration, but if it's all the same to you, I'll take mine straight up with a twist. LOL
