Challenge: Oops! (Classic Editing)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S50
Location: Katherine, NT Australia
Date: Aug 28, 2003
Aperture: 4
ISO: 50
Shutter: 1/1000

Date Uploaded: Sep 1, 2003

Saw this plane wreck whilst visiting the Northern Territory for the first time. There was a large billboard advertising tours to fly over Nitmiluk Gorge just before I saw this and I suspect this prop was placed by the road by a resentful station owner who is trying to scare off the hoards of tourists to the area. I thought it was an ingenuous ‘anti-advertising’ campaign and worked well for the ‘Oops Challenge’.

Original photo was cropped, balanced and coloured in Photoshop for this composition.

Good idea, fits in the category better than many entries, but I think it would have been better taken at a different time of day - early morning or evening. The light is rather harsh.

Planes don't land that way. Good capture looks like it was a long time ago.
