Not like some others I just shoot aircrafts, not really paying attention to what it is. I am more concerned about the angle, light and composition, but the other day I was in MUC and to my surprise I saw the new Hapag Lloyd A310-204 in TUI livery.

I of course had no clue what it was, I just thought it kind a looked nice.....so I took some shots. After having picked up the slides I noticed that I have something special on film......

Here is a preview, currently stuck in the queue....



Anyone had similar experience?

Actually yes. I was just waiting for this plane to fill more of the frame, it wasn't untill later I noticed how well the blue sky and the dark mountains matched the rest of the scenery.  Smile

I gotta say AKE0404AR that is a really nice pic! BTW with regards to the airline in the picture, will all the airlines remain individual, or will they all be renamed TUI? The reason i ask is that the plane still has the old airlines name on it, yet the newly repainted Britannia planes do not carry the airlines name, unless i am mistaken?


That'll teach you

I caught this moment on film by accident (sort of)....
I was concentrating on just taking some sunset shots of WTC 1 from the obs deck on WTC 2... I must have took a half dozen shots like this that moment because I was bracketing and the sun was getting weak fast.
After 9/11 I decided to pull those slides out from that day's visit up there, I had them tucked away in the closet for a couple years... and much to my surprise in the corner when I pulled this slide, I see an aircraft ... an MD80 on approach into LGA.

Vasco..that's where you and I differ. Personally, I remember each and every shot, including the registration. Heck, I would have even remembered there was that Team Luft. Dash in the background.

Great shot! I'm sure it'll be accepted.

Michael,

true, In the beginning I was not at all for Regs, nowadays I am starting to pay more and more attention to it.
Nonetheless this shot was a difficult one, had to shoot thru the fence at 500mm and there were some other obsticles in the way as well.

With all due respect to Carlos and that picture, PLEASE dont take offense to this, but... "... and much to my surprise in the corner when I pulled this slide, I see an aircraft"

Now, last time i checked, this IS "airliners.net" not "reallygoodpictures.net" And although i dont nessasarily disagree with that picture being here, it does raise some very valid questions...

Once again, dont misunderstand me, it is an awesome picture, when i first looked at it i stared at it and was like "wow" the artistic value to it is incredible... But, i just wanted to point out what i think alot of people are thinking but dont want to say (since it is the WTC and all... )

Just my $0.02, please dont take offense... thanks

I have a slide I took in August 2001 @ DFW of an American 767-200. When I looked @ the slide more closely, I found out the registry number of the aircraft is N334AA. If I can ever figure out how to get the slides from that trip to scan correctly, maybe I'll upload it.

Glad to hear you enjoyed that shot Chris... thanks.
I take no offence to what your trying to explain, but I'm not really sure what it "is" your trying to say here.

What "valid questions" and what "people are thinking but don't want to say"? Could you explain in more detail...

Personally... I never want us (Americans) to ever forget what we once had and how quickly it was taken away from us by terrorist. WTC was a symbol of many things to this country... economic power, freedom and pride to name just a few.

Again... thanks for the nice comments on the shot.

500mm and thru the fense with obsticles... and rotating never the less. Nice shot Vasco... just curious, but what type of lens did you use for it? The clarity is very sharp.

Carlos...I think Chris was really saying that your shot sucked big time and he couldn't even see a plane with a 30x loupe. Hey, but I like it  Smile

Hahaha.. good one Mike.  Big grin
I was actually kinda surprised myself at the time when Johan accepted it for that same reason. But in light of what the WTC tragedy meant to so many around the world... I understand why he added to the datebase.

I think most of the photogs who are also spotters and take an interest in aviation itself know pretty well what they have shot. For some, that's the whole reason to go out shooting, and that's why many note down what they've seen/shot.

Personally, I am completely nuts about aviation, but somehow, when I am there spotting, I am there as a Photographer, and not as an aviation hobbyist. I don't quite care what a/c it is, as long as I can get a good picture of it! Usually the photo's I remember the most are the ones I get disappointed with, and the unsuspected ones are often the most rewarding. (the ones you didn't remember you shot)

The newly repainted Britannia planes do carry the airline name, check my last photos to confirm.

Vasco, did you upload that photo with that Copyright banner in that position?

A couple of examples for you: in this first shot, I never noticed the heron in the foreground, even though it was quite large, and right in my line of sight. When I looked at the pic afterwards I laughed out loud - it looked so comical

This second example, I never saw the third a/c (Emirates A330) until after I had fired the shutter and thought I missed it, but as I was gradually moving the camera up as the BY 757 was climbing out, it just sneaked into the top of the frame, which was a nice surprise (This one's sitting in the queue - not sure it will be accepted, as all the aircraft are quite small):

It was shot with the lens I shoot 90% of my stuff, Sigma 170-500mm. Gives great results with the right light as soon as it gets dark, well then of course it lacks a little......

No, not really I resized it for faster loading and added the copyright, just in case!!!!

Hey Vasco,
I am very impressed with your shot at full 500mm sigma lens- my old sigma f2.8 70-210 at full 210mm wasnt always as sharp as your 500mm. nice work.

First, I want to say to the Screeners and Johan....Please upload Justin and Vasco's pics..... both are simply stunning!

Like Vasco, I am not too attentive to reg #s, I too am more concered with light, composition and a unique angle. However, I am always paying close attention to what aircraft style and airline that I am photographing. I have had few suprises.

I usually keep track of the date, airport and a few regs. Then I put them in a plastic bag together in the refrigerator until I get them developed. That way when I get them back from the developer, I know that every slide out of that bunch was shot at (for example) LAX on December 17, 2001. I can then stamp the correct date on the slides. So yes, I usually always know what I have shot.
