Landing Approach Fisheyed

Landing Approach Fisheyed
The Shot
The end of the runway for Arrecife Airport, Lanzarote is on the coast. Between the sea and the Perimeter fence there is a footway and cyclepath which runs between Puerto del Carmen and Arrecife. This is a brilliant location to get shots of planes roaring in to land about 50ft overhead. You might call it a hot spot for Lanzarote Tourists.

This was one of those occasions when a plan comes together. I had taken shots here before but never looking directly up because the planes over fill a 10mm wide angle field of view. This time I took the fisheye lens with the aim of getting a dramatic overhead shot.

Usually I would edit out anything distracting right in the corner of an image. In this case I decided to leave in the face of the man looking up as it provides a good connection.

The camera used was a Sony A700 with a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens. The image was opened in Camera Raw and 2 additional images were created at -2EV and +2Ev for a “false HDR”. The 3 raw images were opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

Adjustments were made in Topaz and Photoshop.
