First, before you judge this, I want only opinions on things besides image quality and graininess, etc.

Do you like the motive? How's the centering, etc? Comments?

I personally really like this one, so I put in on myaviation.net, but I know it isn't Airliners quality.  Smile

Thanks for your comments.

Hello Carson.

Though your photo does capture the context of the fly-by, the fundamental problem you have here is the distance of the aircraft. What I mean by this is the small area that the aircraft itself takes up in the overall framing.

Unless there is a clear motive to do otherwise, A.net requires the aircraft to be large in the frame, with little 'dead space' around it. In your photo there is a lot of sky,above and to the sides, which would be considered dead space. Some might argue that the spectators are also somewhat distracting too and don't really enhance the photo.

In terms of centering, this obviously relates to the point above. But even if you felt that the motive was the plane and spectators, there is still too much space above the aircraft.

Hi Carson!

Have to agree with Paul here. If you take such a shot, which was probably intended to capture the atmosphere of the show, you have to get closer to the action so that the viewer of the photo gets "sucked into" the shot. In your photo the plane is just too far away. You can best get such effects if you use a large zoom and take the photo from a certain distance so that the plane and the public merge.
One example of mine from the Paris Air Show: http://planecatcher.com/pages/military/033113LFPB230607b.htm
you wouldn't say so by just looking at the shot but the C17 was a great distance away from the pictured audience.

Okay, I know exactly what you mean.

I was thinking the exact opposite of that. I think it wouldn't have been that way if I really captured the atmosphere as ThierryD mentioned above though. Just my thoughts.

Thanks Guys  Smile
