*remember, there are 9 other new pics you should check out!!   *

-----------------------

NEW question... okay, here was a reject pic, and im curious if i can possibly salvage it... its actually one of my favorites, but had "low aesthetic qualities" i assume because of the jetbridge.... but please check it out, i like it alot and wonder if there is any way i can make it better???

Here is something for the flatbed scanners out there to look at!! This is a "before and after" picture..

Here is the print, i actually worked on this picture for quite a while before eventually giving up:

OKay, so anyway, i thought i would share some of my radiant glee  with the rest of you! Besides, i owe you guys thanks for all the great advice i've soaked up in the past months...

by the way, Vasco, remember those pictures taking off into the fog?? haha, well those came out rather boring... quality was ok, just not really as cool as i hoped....

Nice work Chris, I really like the AA 767.

I really envy all of you guys who have access to airports with diverse traffic patterns. You would think a city as large as Houston with have at least the same # of domestic widebodies as BOS. Its HELL being an IAH spotter sometimes! Unless you like CO, that is.

BTW Chris, what scanner did you buy ?

Ah, Chris, I've changed my mind...I've decided that I need the scanner back.

Just kidding.  

Seriously though, FANTASTIC pics! My favorite is the AA 767 night shot - I liked it so much I made it my desktop wallpaper. Anyway, glad the scanner is working out for you, and I look forward to more killer shots!

Actually, those AA DC-10 shots are two different negs. Look at the tree line. You still can see some of the difference though.

Holy crap man your right.... your right there are 2 diff negs but they look identical in print so i guess i really wasnt paying too close attention... well there are some similar "before/after" shots i found too...

and thanks for the comments, guys! did anyone check out that US airways 737?? im curious what anyone thinks of it...

That USAir 737 that was rejected, was rejected before some of it was blocked by the gate. Those are some nice shots though. I think the second AA DC-10 is perfect though. What kind of scanner, and how much??

Congrats Chris and the Boston Skyline shot (boat) turned out pretty nice.
No matter what a lot of people say, BOS is great.....365 days .........all year round and I encourage everyone to come up to to New England.

P.S. I'll bring back some nice shots from MEX.
