I am still relatively new to aviation photography and DSLR. I am still working my way towards getting it right. I have achieved some successes and some failures along the way. But thanks to the advice, inputs, opinions and critiques of Anetters, I have come a long way.

My focus in Aviation photography (which is a hobby for me), is on the difficult stuff. The only way I can move ahead is to study the works of successful Anetters and ask for advice on shots that are difficult to place. Below are 8 photos I took while transitioning from a point and shoot to a DSLR. They may not be the best, but they cover potential motive and quality issues. Your constructive criticism as to the chances of these photos passing the scrutiny of our able screeners would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ken

Heathaze is a problem in almost all of these shots. I can't see any of these making the grade here although you are probably well on your way. I'd say the 1st shot is the best attempt although it still looks soft.

Also the last two have a pole blocking the aircraft = motive.

Thanks Tim for your constructive and informative advice. It is nice to learn from a seasoned screener.

Viv, it is impossible to get the full wheels of planes taxing at LCY. LCY is built on what was formerly a pier in what used to be the London Docklands. The runway is surrounded by water.

Cheers Ken.

My feelings exactly  scratchchin 
All great shots, although I believe #2 looks 'excessively' blurry or 'out-of-focus'. (Perhaps its just me..) Sunset shots can usually make great motives, and from the above set, I like #3 most. Good luck getting them into the database. wink
