Nighttime Flight

Plane flying into BWI from our balcony October 7, 2017 at 8:42 PM. I had the shutter open for 20 seconds while having a negative exposure to not have the image be bright. There was some still some noise after post-production I was unable to smooth out without having the small details blend together.

Prior to writing this, I attempted to research which flight was inbound at that time but was unsuccessful. It was a lesson learned to look at real-time flight tracking while taking pictures of airplanes.

Lens - AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II @ 55mm on Nikon D5500
