I've got two aircraft from my Fairford pictures that I'm pleased with, but I was wondering whether it's worth uploading them here, as I have a couple of compositional questions.

First is an Irish PC-9 here.

- Bouncy castle bother anybody?

Second is the well-photographed SU-22, here.

- Sign
- Burger stand.

The latter there's a few of, so I'm not too worried, but I thought the angle was interesting.

Cheers

Lovely photos mate! I can see the second being shot down for motiv but the first i think might be ok.

The bouncy castle in the PC-7 shot is pretty far away and I can't imagine it being a problem. As for the Su-22, I had a shot of it rejected for "distracting objects in foreground" (comment from screener) but in your case the sign is further away and not really in the foreground. There is also the possibility of a badpersonal on account of the chap in the blue shirt, given that his face is visible, but I would say it's borderline.

The real problem as I see it is the dead space under the nose probe. But the probe is part of the aircraft after all, so you can't be blamed for including it in the shot. Subject to what any screeners might say, I think you're within your rights in uploading.

Hi James

Taking off my Screening Beanie, I don't have a problem with the bouncy castle but I do with the burger stand.

have you got one taken from the other side?

Regards

Gary

Hi Gary,

Sadly not, I think I was shooting where the light was, although the odds are I could have provided enough glow on the opposite side with my sunburnt tomato complexion.

I'll keep that one for myself I think.

Cheers

Take care

You know Fergul, I never noticed that...

Lens is the 18-55 kit. I'm not quite sure why that PC-9 came out as sharp as it did, generally results with that lens are a little on the soft side, especially toward the edges, although you can't go wrong for 100 quid.

I'm keen to try a 17-40 to see the difference.

James its a different kettle of fish the 17-40 simply outstanding .
I shot some ferries the other day with a 17-40 and you can sure notice the difference from the stock 18-55

I'd agree with that James, and so is the Sigma 24-70 DG EX f2.8. Mick Bajcar has both lenses and he can't tell the difference between the two, Canon and Sigma, I have the Sigma and it is dam sharp.

Take care

Being practical, I haven't reached a point yet where I'm so unhappy with the 18-55 that I want to replace it, but I'd definitely look into it if I had the cash to spare. After all, the quality I can get with it is still miles ahead of anything I had before.

The statics at fairford were a real eye-opener for me. I really enjoyed taking those pictures, wish I'd have had more time (and sunblock  Cool ) to do some more. I remember standing beneath the wing of the DHL 757 and thinking "Where else could I get this close to an airliner?" It was great fun.
