Hi guys..

Just back from St. Maarten!

I've included a few photos from Juliana Airport and I'd like to get your opinions on them. Do you think they'll be accepted?

I would say they should be accepted but I'm no expert. I wish 1/10 of my pictures came out that good.

Also, are you the same Chris Kilroy that runs Airdisaster.com?

Very nice shots. I don't see any reason why they'd be rejected.

I like them all except the Winair were there is too much sky, all the others are wonderful pictures and the first one (AA 763) is just fantastic, even that reflex adds something special to the photo. I guess it will have around 1000 views very quickly.

Congratulations.

P.S. What's the name of the hotel from were you took the photo?

I think these FANTASTIC shots are DIGITAL. I could be wrong, but none the less, they are wonderful...

I have already saved them - will add your name to them later.

Thanks for the great photos.

I spoke to Chris this evening and they are indeed Digital.

I'll tell ya...if the Screeners or Johan pass on these, then they may want re-examine their editing techniques!

These are just to damn good to reject!!

I love the shadow in the AA 767 shot - and the way the top of the tail lines up almost perfectly with the edge of the water and sky in the horizon....

yo chris - you did a great job !!!!!

Hi all,

Thanks SO MUCH for all of the great comments! I never expected to be so well (re)received on the forum here. I've been away for quite awhile, and it's nice to see the same nice people I remember from before.  Smile

I've included links to a couple more photos. I uploaded a total of 35 photos, and I wouldn't want to show you ALL of them, because there wouldn't be any suspense then, would there?  Big grin

I posted the Continental 73G go around shot here because I'm doubtful that it'll get accepted, even though I did upload it. I just thought it was somewhat interesting to see a wide-angle shot of the entire beach/spotting area, and an aircraft performing a go around.

My favorite of this bunch is the wing shot of the landing at TNCM.  Smile

Thats it!......I am going to have to invest the $2500+ in the Canon D30 (or its successor) sometime next year!

I agree with you Chris on the CO 'Go around', its' borderline at best!

you got it happening here. the way things are lined up. the wing shot is lined up perfect - the edge meets up with - well - anyone can see......

I don't know what else to say, and I still have a few more pics to look at. The 747 is sweet also. The timing and lines are great. I gotta go look at the rest...

Actually he told me that it is a Sony DSC-E505V 3.3 mxp camera with a 300mm.

Damn, Flycoach you almost had me going with that first price quote of $1900 for a D-30. I was going to pick one up tomorrow if that was the case!

Chris,

Nice to see your still alive and kicking  Wink/being sarcastic

They are great shots and are sure to be accepted, did you use a "fake" name just in case Big grin

I have to blame Chris for making me spend a few thousand pounds on buying my S1, it was his digital shots that made me buy it. If Chris is still using the same camera then he has a Sony DSC-505 and as you can see it produces great shots. Now i have said that he's probably gone and bought something better!

Good to see your still around, must be time to upload some of those UPS shots?

All the best

Paul
