Spotter day Lessine the 20-05-2009

Postby MDelfeld » Sun 24 May 2009 06:36

Hy everybody, This is the very first time I am taking part of a spotter day. Yes I have been to meetings like "Le Bourget" but never been in such a meeting. It's also the very first time I am taking pics of airplanes with a digital machine. Many year ago (let's says +/- 20 years) I done it once for a special event in Farnbourough (GBR).

I propose you several pics of that beautiful day. Every pics has been teken with a Canon 1DMkIII and the 100-400 L IS USM from canon as well.

Please give me your opinion, I would be very interested about your critics.

Thanks for sharing these. Very well done.
I'm curious what advice and comments Marc St.-Pierre, -professional aviation photographer and member of this forum- will post on these.

About Topas filter on these kind of pictures: I prefer the original, natural rich contrast original one.
kindest regards,

Stany

The exhaust is my favorite thing to see. Do you even get challenged shooting airplanes/jets anymore :)

Thanks for putting this pictures on the forum.
A question: How can somebody know where is a aviation show? Do you know a website for that?
Passioned by beautiful pictures, not a very active photographer though...
Regards,
Vincent

PS I use google translate a lot to write better English. So, if mistake, I's google, not me. ;)
