At the airport

Quite interesting what you can see down at the airport!  These two girls were waiting for a friend returning from the 2010 Pacific Rim Gymnastics Competition and had made a special effort with their appearance!  I was there to collect my daughter and managed to get a few shots of her flight landing that I've processed in Photomatix Pro.  The sky and clouds were quite moody, so a bit of enhancement with HDR often accentuates the colours and tones.  I'm not sure what I think about any of the shots, so perhaps let me know what you think.  The first looks like it's been taken on a frosty day!


  1. I love your photos. I like the way the windows acted as a natural polarizer. I especially love the warm window shot. Looks like you may have had a nice light outside, too. I am going to try HDR one day.

    You are so right about the airport being an interesting place. I never get bored - at least not as long as I have my camera. I guess if everyone had a camera, there would be less airline rage.

    Thanks for the nice email you sent me. I have not had time to respond. I just retired! So now I have time on my hands. Well, after I spend a few weeks catching up on things.

  2. Well, this certainly makes the airport look bright and cheerful.

  3. Love the orange hairdos!!!

  4. You can keep hardward and technology - give me the girls with the orange hair anyday. Great shot, Chris!
