Hoover Dam - Full Frame and Tight Crop from appx. 20,000+ ft.

This image was taken by a friend of mine (window seat) and is the first photo he's ever taken with the NX200. It was taken from the very last seating row in the back of a Southwest Airlines 737, yesterday as we climbed to final cruising altitude. The lens is the kit 18-55mm zoom. I just handed the camera to him and showed him where to look and how to press the shutter release.

Here's the full image:

Here's the crop from appx. the middle of the full frame:

Not too back considering it was shot through airline quality (dirty) plexiglass, and using the kit lens.

Processed using Lightroom 4. Only minor tweaking and sharpening applied.
