Aircraft and Sundown
This shot was an exceptional lucky shot. The sunset was simply fantastic. There are only two or three weeks a year, when these shots are possible. At least at the airport near by...
I wanted the sun to touch the earth at the horizon close to the end of the runway. During the year, the sun goes down either too early or is still up in the sky. The weather and the clouds must fit as well. Without any clouds it's not as interesting like this.
Finally the aircraft has to come from the right side, which depends on the wind direction. On that certain day, all parameters fit together.
I used a 70-200mm lens at 165mm, shot at 1/2000s with f4.0. Additionally I used a ladder to tower over the fence ;-)
Post processing : adaption of the gradient curve, reducing (that's no typing error) the color dynamic, add a bit of light to the dark tones, raised the exposure by 0,25 and add a bit of blue to the upper sky.
