Default Omega 5 Photographs

This is turning out to be more time consuming than I imagined, but here are the first two photos. No intention of putting on security fencing in all of the photos.

Fantastic shots (especially the first one). Just when I thought you couldn’t surpass yourself….
The perspective from behind the security fence really sells the shots...a perfect “merge”!

That first photograph made me look once,stop, clean my glasses, then look again! Absolutely, astonishingly, photo realistic! Very ,very well done, with both the model and the lighting shots and shadows.I doubt that a film production studio could do better!
My only slight quibble is that the angle of perspective on the barb wire fence in the second photo seems a bit steep considering the flat field perspective shot behind it, whilst being a perfect match for the close tower picture in the first.

Many, many thanks for all the comments. I'm glad all the hard work has met with approval .

Thanks also, Knownspace for your comment on the angle of the fence. After staring at it for a while late last night, I came to the same conclusion and redid it. Looks a lot better now.

You may not have noticed with images at this size but there are tiny figures at the base of the rocket in the first photo and in the second I tried to copy the effect of vapour and falling ice from the first stage. Also had to redo the umbilicals in the retracted position as they don't move on the model.

I'm going cross-eyed. Time for a rest.

Keith,

Those are just amazing! I sent the first image to a friend at work today, along with a yarn about it being the Eurosec replacement for the space shuttle, when he received it, I got pumped for information on how I had found this out and he had not heard anything about it.

After about 5 minutes I let him in on the fact that it was your model. I almost got thumped! He actually told me he did not believe that it was a model, and demanded to know where the launch site was and how I had got access to such an obviously restricted area.

He had to believe me when I logged on to this forum from work and showed him the thread. He too was gobsmacked.

I like it!!.

Always nice when it is apparent that the photos have actually worked. As the person putting them together, you can be too close to them as you know how they are done. So it is always helpful to get truly independent views (and that includes pointing out mistakes or better ways to do it).

Thanks.

Keith

Default "Excellence"

A few of my fave details are actually "small"…just like the pad’s personnel that we see next to the railings…the warning sign on the fence, the contrails (pic#1) and the misty night sky.
As I’ve said, these are JUST a few of my fave details…
