Hi!
I like the first one best of those, although all three are looking good.
A note for the second one. I think a little bit counterclockwise rotation could not hurt. Check the vertical lines on the container in the foreground.
I like the light very much!
Well done
Peter

They look good. My advise would be to leave the shutter open 2-3 more second on the third photo and use a blue filter on the first two to cut out the yellow on the airplanes. Otherwise I like them.

Looking good. And if they are your first attempt at night shots then I'm mightily impressed.

Thanks for your feedback. Chris, when are you going to do some more night shots? I liked that one of the T2 lineup at MAN you did. More night shots with the D30!

Well, this is the ideal time of year to do them isn't it? Problem is being there when it's dark - and then finding a decent line up of a/c. Standing on the roof of MAN T1 in the dark in a freezing gale for a few hours isn't my idea of great fun. (Though I suppose I could photograph whatever's there, then go downstairs and have a drink and a burger, then back up an hour later when it's changed...)

How about LGW? Or do they close the terrace when it goes dark?

LGW's viewing area closes at Dusk! Great! It would be quite good there if it was open when it was dark. Could get a rather nice Garuda 744 night shot as it notmally parks close the the enclosure. LHR is a possibility. Down by the cathays and the BA/BMi hangar's.
