|Aerial photography: Part 3||- Aerial Photo 3|
These images were taken on Emirates flight EK8 from Heathrow to Dubai on 10th November 2007 to attend the Dubai Air Show 2007, and on the return Emirates flight EK29 on 14th November.
These photographs were taken using a Nikon D40X body and the Nikon 70 - 300 mm zoom telephoto lens. The ISO setting was fixed at 1,600 and the shutter speed was set at 1/1,600 second.
The effects of reflections from the windows are quite clear.

Without additional illumination, it is very difficult to see anyone in a house from a distance...
After using auto levels and auto contrast in Adobe Photoshop, one can discern someone on the roof of this building. However, it is difficult to spot anyone inside the building. This image was taken with maximum telephoto zoom of 300 mm.
Not too bad, considering the photograph was taken through the aircraft exhaust which had the effect of blurring the photograph.
