Cell phones aboard aircraft do not interfere with any navigation or communication equipment. They do, however, tie up multiple cell towers. A commercial jet traveling at 500 MPH covers more than 8 miles per minute, and at 35,000 feet would contact at least a dozen cell towers every 5 minutes. Multiple that by 4,000 flights every hour times an average of 100 passengers per flight and you have virtually every cell tower being used. A needless tie up of cell towers without any revenue to the cell phone companies.
[quote=katu41]Thanks to many of you for viewing and commenting on my recent posts of black and white photographs. I recently reviewed old files in my Lightroom library and picked images that I thought had potential for B&W. Here are a few more examples:
1. Naples Church This shot from 2014 was of a church on the main square in Naples, Italy. While I felt the color image was pretty good, I was really surprised by the conversion to B&W. Shot with a Canon 5D II with a 24-105 L lens.
2. Naples Galleria: This photo was shot a few minutes before No. 1. This is in a shopping mall (Not sure what the original use of the building was when built.) The geometry of the building speaks for itself.
3. Valencia, Spain: The City of Arts and Science in Valencia is one of the most unusual places I have ever visited. The scale of the buildings is unbelievable and the architecture is absolute world class. I will post more from here in the coming weeks.
While the color processing of these 3 shots seemed to work well, I thought they also landed themselves to B&W. Your comments are greatly appreciated.[/quo
Your photos are lovely. I am very impressed with the wide angle lack of distortion in the first and third pictures. Very nicely done.
Blackhorse, - - - When the Blue Angels or the Thun... (
Of course they fly low over populated areas where they are performing. But there is a great difference between 10 feet AGL (above ground level) and 100 feet AGL. Most folks could not tell the difference as everything is fast and seems so low. All that I was saying is that when the US teams fly very low they are over water, and that the crazy low pilots in the video appear to be Russian and NOT US.
The video is not of US Blue Angels. Most were Russian jets flying where the folks speak Russian...watch the video again and you will clearly hear Russian words spoken. In two of the clips, you can clearly see soldiers in Russian uniforms. Low altitude flights by the Blue Angels are conducted over water, and not over populated urban areas. Also, several of the aircraft are Soviet era types.
my nephew at first day of her life in two different frames with Nikon D800 , my personal opinion Black and white is better
