Joe,

Can I ask how long you have been reading the photography forum?

On the first one can you see where there is a dark shadow on the right hand side? That's something called Vignetting.

The main problem with the rest is that they are poorly cropped. It's not even worth going into more detailed faults until you understand the basic principles of photography like how to frame a subject. You have either cut parts of the aircraft off or not cropped it close enough.

Buy some photography magazines that will give step by step tips and browse the database and look at some of the photo's.

It's not a question of how much ground to show. It's about what looks right. Having a Dslr isn't going to guarantee you great shots overnight. It takes time, experience and a lot of practice. As I said the best thing you could do is read some magazines or books on photography while practicing at the same time. It isn't like making instant coffee where you just add water and hey presto, the finished article.  Smile

Hi!

The Challenger shot could make it into the database with some processing. As you said you own a dslr, do you have a higher resolution file than the one linked above?

It's usually easiest to shoot at the biggest size, because correcting mistakes is easier with fewer loss of quality.
There's no real need to buy a ton of magazines and try to learn the technique from these, just look through the accepted shots in the database, and try to see what most have in common.

If shooting again, try to get the aircraft centered in your frame as good as you can, without cutting off parts of the plane (not like the NetJets shot).

Try to get the shot level, so that the verticals (e.g. lamp posts, buildings, etc.) are vertical. If there is no real reference, try to get the horizon straight.

With these things in mind the next time you'll be out shooting, you'll be on the right track for airliners.net acceptances, and I have to admit you're not doing too bad so far. Have seen much worse shots around here actually.

Cheers,
Florian

Damien thanks for that link to the guide. I'll have a good read of that in the morning as it looks like the sort of thing I could do with reading.  Wink


Failing doesn’t make you a failure. Giving up and refusing to try again does!
