Ah yes.... if it isn't yet another "rear" special from our friend PolishAir. Seriously dude, do you purposely try to capture every shot from the worst possible angle? I'll give you a hint : side-on. Try it sometime.

I like the shot....Matter factly I might have the same shot as I was standing somewhere in the same vacinity shooting pics too..tee-hee. I too get tired of straight on side shots or profile shots.
I think the point or "motiv" of this shot is to show the just how damned low these planes are on short final....get over it and live with it guys..Peter does great work for a novice...Not all of you can say that you have a covershot for a flight training magazine at age 17!!!!!
Keep up the great Work!!

you would have had more luck if you shot in a rainstorm with low clouds like you typically do..
ROFL..what are you talking about?
HAHA!! hey dude, [polishair] with all due respect, you may have missed his point, which, i'm sorry to say, he does have a point. Have you looked at your pics lately? From a photographer's opinion, WAY too many shots done with little sun, no sun, or backlit.
Please take this as constructive critisism, i know you might not realize there is a problem since your pictures get accepted regularly, but that is pretty simply because the quality in terms of grain/sharpness is good (digital camera).
Anyway, that's all i wanted to say, i'm not trying to be mean, just helpful.

Before we all go bashing this kid for boring images, we have to give him credit for trying. We all have to start somewhere, and it's good to see him trying shots like the WN image above...and this one too:
If you would have tried that during a bright orange sunset, you'd have a monster shot on your hands. But because of the clouds: *yawn*
It just takes determination and practice. Based on the amount of pics you upload to this site, it looks as if you have both. Next time you're out at ORD, try something new - don't show us the same old mid-day snapshots from 27L. Show us the living monster that is ORD!

I personally like the idea, but the composition is off. If you had a tighter angle showing the cars on the street and the a/c it would work, but the airplane here is just that much too high, leaving too much space between it and the rest of the "action." (I hope this makes sense...under the influence of Vicadin...yee hahh...)
