Copying Is The Highest Form Of Flattery

Wed Mar 13, 2002 7:28 pm

I'm not a fan of "Will these make it?" topics, but this time I'm a bit concerned.

I was so impressed and inspired by Vasco's photos that I finally managed to get something similar, but unfortunately, some of the ones below have been rejected before. I'm not giving up though because I feel that these are worthwhile additions to a.net.

But if you think these can be further improved, please let me know.

Thanks for the nice words, K.

When it comes down to the photos, I like em all, except for the LH A300, too far in the distance.

Thanks Vasco,
the problem with the sign is, if you zoom closer, due to limited depth of field, either the sign or the plane will be out of focus, see here:

Hello K--

They look great, no doubt about it. The ANA 744 might be a tad crooked in terms of a straight horizon, didn't bother me though.

The composition of the A300 looks good for me, I believe I understand what you were trying to get at.

Bonjour Chef!

OK, they've passed the first screening now, but usually that means they will be rejected by the admin, and they weren't good enough to be added straight away...
:-(
Well, you can still see them at planepictures.net!

I'm about to join airwhiners.net too, all were rejected again. I'll try one more time with the screeners, if not, it's a loss for this site, not for me (because I can look at them any time).
