Bigphilnyc, a funny/sad story. I was on vacation from October 4-12 and had planned a trip down to Houston to do IAH
and look around as I might possibly be transferred down there next year. Anyway, getting up every morning last week and looking outside it was nothing but overcast, rain, fog, haze, poor visibility, and according to the Weather Channel, nothing but rain, rain, and more rain for IAH
the entire week. They even had a tornado that did some minor damage.
As for the comments to screeners, I usually try to include something to give the screeners a little better "feel" for the shot, and if pertinent to the image, I will include info in the remarks field to give the viewer a better idea of what I and other spotters were experiencing that day. DFW
has been really difficult to shoot lately, and I've been trying a lot of new angles and lighting conditions that I've never done. I mentioned to another spotter one night last week as we were shooting in the dark at slow shutter speeds that I either must be dedicated, desperate, or a little off in the head to shoot as many images as I have lately just to get one or two good ones. Also days are getting shorter and soon the time will move back, putting an end to weeknight spotting and limiting me to weekends only.
BTW, Thanks for the plug on the T7
fog shot above. I try to self screen all my shots and did not hesitate to submit it after I worked it through Photoshop.
