St. Marteen Pics

Ok, spectacular place to spot, but you guys don't think that all pictures taken at St. Marteen are all the same and boring at the end !?!? Well, I found just a few very original like this one :

EDDM, yes, repetitive...In some cases you can even change the colors of the plane from one pic to the other without changing the composition  Wink/being sarcastic

repetative and becoming very predictable to say the least, i don't even open SXM shots anymore, this is the most original in a long while.

I do enjoy seeing them but once you have seen one, you have seen them all (except for a new airline or livery change).

I think some of the shots people are uploading from there are starting to kill this location. Ive seen numerous uploads of shots where it was cloudy and dull.

Most people recognise SXM for it's sun and blue skies, not dull light and cloud!

I think this is a nice one, showing both ends of the runway

How do you shoot directly into the sun and get an image like the first one ?
Nice shot indeed

I can understand that for the viewer on a-net it can be repetitive, but alas, SXM is the dream for every plane spotter, isn't it? I at least checked more than once flights to SXM to hop over for some nice photo taking... I am sure everybody who took pics there is very excited if they turned out well, and thus I totally understand that everybody wants to show them off on a-net (and similar sites). There are so many other repetitive pics as well - at least SXM ones are exciting!  Big thumbs up
