whats really said is just assuming someone cheated, many people have had this happen simply because they forgot to make sure their camera was set to the right date.


Agreed. Tons of experienced photographers on this site make this mistake all the time, it's probably the most common reason to get DQ'd on DPC. It's sad that you just assumed he cheated.

amazing picture, reminds me the days I took some lessons in this gliders, makes me wanna go fly again.

Lovely! The reflection is wonderful!

Many people are wondering how I get that shot...

This is very simple :

On lower left corner you can see a little window as part of the canopy. You can pull it back to get some fresh air... ;) or put your camera out of it and get nice shots obsviously without seeing anything!! So I took many shots to get the good frame, a nice composition with the clouds and the reflection.

It was a one seat-glider so right hand to pilot and the left one half out of the canopy. The thing is that a glider is relatively slower that an aircraft ( you can slower down to 80km/h ) and you don't have a strong stream of air that could come from a propeller.

I gave this a 10. My favourite photo!

Congrats!

The dedicated photopgrapher leapt from the little plane with nothing but a camera and the strong belief that he could land on that lonely looking glider flying by. He hits the target then thinks "Ooops, now how do I get down from here?"

Love this shot. We'd all like to know how it was done though. Please fill us in!!!

Holy cow !! You HAVE to tell me how you took this picture. I have been trying to figure out the way to safely mount a camera somewhere in the outside of a 182 in such a way that a portion of the aircraft is visisble in the frame (preferably without the obstructing wing) but have not come up with an answer yet. My dream is to take a long exposure (seveal seconds)picture during a take off (and/or landing), at dusk or night, from a busy airport with lights all over.
03/29/2010 12:53:11 PM
Wow...
03/27/2010 07:03:54 PM
Great point of view with an intersting angle. I like all the reflections.
03/27/2010 12:34:27 PM
Awesome perspective
03/27/2010 09:21:31 AM
Do I want to know how you did this???
03/27/2010 02:23:01 AM
I like the image and viewpoint, the reflected images off the canopy and the cumulus building up in the background really make it more than a standard 'competent' image into something 'interesting'. Cool
03/25/2010 11:19:56 PM
Not a perspective most of us had available. Is this a glider, or is the extreme perspective making it look shaped that way? How the heck did you get your camera out there?
03/25/2010 10:15:51 PM
Amazing, love the reflection, 10.
03/25/2010 03:58:14 PM
Man, that's not fair! Nice shot though... 8.
03/25/2010 01:49:37 PM
How in the world did you get this shot? I am impressed.
Nice reflection off of the window too
03/24/2010 11:51:48 PM
nice perspective...curious how you did this
03/24/2010 05:34:21 PM
NICE!
03/24/2010 04:06:59 PM
Don't drop the camera!
03/24/2010 01:41:40 PM
O wow...this is bringing my phobia of highs out. Excellent shot.
03/24/2010 12:47:12 PM
Very cool point of view. Nice job.
03/24/2010 08:22:36 AM
Great image, remote and mounted camera? Fantastic control of your camera.
