Dream Flight by AllyCat1994 Dream Flight by AllyCat1994
Flying back from Florida last January. So surprised that this photo turned out ok but it's alright nothing special but it was sure cool to be up so high unfortunately you can't see the palm trees from here >.<

I love a aeroplane window shot, so do not be disheartened by the low originality grade. Let's face it, its often done, but this is as good a window shot as I've seen.

I love how the depth is accentuated by the clouds and the shadows and I love the off-kilter angle. Definitely adds to the impact of this shot and, I think, tongue-in-cheekly, a feature of aeroplane window shots that has become positively clichéd!

I am impressed you've managed to avoid reflections and glares from the window which shows you've technically done well, but the focus on the ground at the extreme base of the image is a little disappointing and detracts from the impact of the image a little. The colours are, however, fantastically saturated and I love the way you've framed the image to include a hint of wing! Again, another positively clichéd aspect of aeroplane shots IMO.

I reaally enjoyed this shot, novelty yes, but just that extra portion of well thought out composition and technique makes this more than just a novelty shot.
What do you think?

Nice shot Ally! I actually like the wing in the shot, gives a sense of preception and depth, nice work! :) One of the cloud shadows down there kinda looks like a palm tree...if I really task my imagination ;)

I saw wild manatees, (which was awesome!) I went to the everglades, and I learned how to boogieboard. It was also my first time riding in a plane. :party: We didn't get to do much cause the first plane had a problem and we missed our connection. :(

Neat i got to see wild crocodiles but no manatees :D
it was my first plane ride when i went too. How many did you go on I went on 2 there and 2 back
Luckily we were delayed 8 hours on the way back instead of on the way to Florida. Did you go to any of the parks?

If you did the animal kingdom safari tour there would have been a good chance you would see some.
We didn't visit any national parks when we were there unfortunately neither did we get to go to the water parks.

That sucks. I was only there for two and a half days and it was during the winter so water parks are out of the question. Besides, Orlando (I hope i got that right.) is a good drive away from Where we were staying. I don't remember exactly where. :iconimstupidplz:

Really? Were they closed or did you find it cold cause we went in January you couldn't swim in the beaches for sure but waterparks idk. Two and a half days isn't enough we went for 7 and a half and didn't get much done we wanted to go 2 weeks but the people we went with didn't. Ah I see we stayed really close and next time we will stay right at the resort. Even if you only went two days it's better then not at all when you were going was it just to visit people?
