What is the one single image you hope to be remembered for? Give some motivation for your reply as well.
I'll probably have to go with this one:

You might want to share one that you can say you devised that particular style, or one that tells a story. Whatever.
I've gone for this one as I feel this kind of picture is, at present, my favourite type. I really enjoy the satisfaction a line up of heavies gives me when all the elements come together. And at my favourite airport too, it's a bonus.
Spence.

I am tempted to go for a photo of my 'Worm's eye view', not least because the area I used to frequent to get those shots is now rather difficult to get to with overgrown shrubbery. At least at the time I was associated with that kind of photo, and that was fine with me.

But I think I would have to go for this image:

Though far from my best quality, I don't think anyone else had done a photo like this at the time. I just liked the way it presented that particular aircraft in a rather 'novel' way.

Cheers.

I'm probably conceited enough to say I haven't taken it yet  Wink
But if we have to limit it to existing images ..(accepted on A.net as a secondary qualifier) then I would go with..

I had noticed the potential for this kind of image and had to make a few visits to get the elements to fall into place.

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Great timing for this thread...

Not the first time I have plugged this photo (sorry  Smile ), but I would have to say this image hands down:

Today marks one year ago that the photo was taken. And as I spent the day yesterday at the same airshow, I heard a few comments from spectators recalling the surprise 747SP visit last year and what a smile it brought to my face when I overheard someone actually make reference to this photo.

A once in a lifetime moment with a classic and now very rare subject...I couldn't be happier to be a part of it.

Pretty memorable that one. I overheard a lot of comments as well from various people about your photo.  Smile A great shot!

I'd like to be remembered for low light photos:

That's my favourite so far. But there are others - when I get some time to edit them and try to upload them. That might be easier now that I'm out of action for a while due to illness.

If not those, then I'll use low shutter speeds on every photo whenever practical.

I had exactly this scene in mind when I was on my way to the airport and

Well this one would have to be it for me. So much work went into the planning and manufacturing of the camera boom to attach to the wing, then actually putting the aircraft into the position I wanted before releasing the shutter. And of course, the awards this photo has won. Shot on Fuji RVP-50 in the good old days of film. Big grin

But it was a really awesome experience - the whole water cannon salute. I loved it and was fortunate enough to get this shot in. I still hate the A380 windows as it was cropped quite a bit to get rid of the last corner. Home airport, inaugural commercial A380 flight into New Zealand. It just made it so much more special being at my home airport. I nearly forgot that they'd have a salute until I saw the fire engine out the window spraying water in front of us! I nearly didn't upload it either but looked online to see that there weren't many photos in the db taken from inside the plane during a salute. But I must say experiencing it in real life is much more enjoyable than any still shot produced.. It also looks like the water's getting sucked into the engine.



It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Well I kinda have two...

I really like the photo of the Qantas A380, it only got accepted today. But as I am so passionate about Concorde and all things Concorde, I have to go with my picture of Alpha Charlie, MY Concorde at Manchester. I am pretty confident that I will take many better photos in the future, however at the moment I only have 5 photos in the database.

Only as I write this do I realize that it was nearly 10 years ago now that I first came across A.net. At the time I thought, "Hey, I've got aircraft pictures I could send to this site!." The one above was my first upload, and is from the first flight I took on an Mi-24.

All of yours are superb shots! Thank you for sharing.  Smile

Definitelly these 2 shots for me, not for the photos themselves, but because they remind me an extraordinary 2-weeks journey as a participant to the 25th rally "Toulouse - Saint-Louis du Sénégal" with a single engine A/C, flying the route that St-Exupéry, Mermoz and other pioneers in aviation were following in transporting mail to South America. A fantastic adventure with some sketches like bird strike on a wing while flying "not that high" over the beach, 2 litres of water in my fuel tank, coming out of a manually pumped 100LL from a barel, a RWY partially closed without NOTAM with the resulting mess when 25 aircrafts are closelly following, etc...  Cool

Well, it worked, because whenever I see your names I always associate you with those photos.

As for me, it would probably have to be this one (out of all my uploads so far). Shows that bad weather isn't always that bad for photos. It wasn't 100% how I had it in mind, but I'm very happy with it nonetheless.

I'd first spotted this photo opportunity almost a decade earlier flying Ghana Airways DC-10 down to Accra from London, and had done the trip many times since, but either the weather was cloudy, or the flight delayed so that it was already dark by the time we reached the desert. This day, I had the right side of the aircraft, a clear day, sunset, and a good view!
