Pic(k) of the week 34: WANT A NEW CAR? FUJIFILM X-T20 FOR AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY

The Port of Zeebrugge, just outside the famous city of Bruges in the west part of Belgium, is the worlds largest "Roll on - Roll off" cargo (RORO in short) port in the world. RORO cargo is basically everything that rolls; cars, busses, tractors, trucks, bulldozers, etc... In 2016 alone, 2.8 million new vehicles came through Zeebrugge port! 

All in all a great setting for some new aerial photography, using my little yellow plane; a 1954 Piper Super Cub!

The image below of part of the harbor, shows a few hundred cars waiting for their next transport; be it a RORO ship or a truck transport car over land. While Aerial photography is all about interesting patterns for me with the image below being a great example of this! I especially like the triangle of the water on the left hand side, showing a sense of place.

Make sure to click on the image below (preferably on a large computer screen), in order to see the amount of detail the image holds!


Image details:
  • Fujifilm X-T20 with the XF18-135 lens
  • RAW file development in Iridient Developer
  • Photoshop CC with High Pass filter for optimal sharpness
  • Nik ColorEfex Pro 4 for optimal colour contrast
