  2. These photos completely changed my appreciation of Ariel Photography! Surprising, artful, beautiful, and informative photos showing the world from a different perspective than I'm used to.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Mike

  3. These aerial 'photographs' are indeed very stunning. I have 'photography' in quotes, somewhat lightheartedly, given another thread in this forum "Can it really be called photography anymore". I could be wrong but I have to believe many of these aerial photographs were significantly edited post-capture. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that , as I said, they are stunning. In any case, I have to believe that what the camera saw and initially recorded was not what is shown. I could simply be jealous since I seldom (never?) see such perfection through my viewfinder.
     
  4. Interesting. I think these reflect rather a tasteful choice of post processing (such as it is). The main aesthetic choice seems to be the choice of lens and of course which of many options to present.
