Which of your a.net or other aviation photos is your favourite shot - and why?

I mean, how often do you get stuck in traffic behind a DC-3? Though I had heard that they were planning to take this baby from NAS to Clifton, I had no clue when, so I hadn't even planned to be there. I was just going home. Luckily, I had my digital camera in the car.

Why? Extremely lovely light and colors, loads of detail and I am still in awe of this angle. Never been able to replicate it... Came close, but not quite  Big grin

Why? The dark sky, the spray, the (for AMS) rare aircraft, the action... I just like the whole 'vibe'.  Smile

This was a difficult shot because it flew past the moon so fast. Stop the camera movement and get a sharp moon and a blurry plane, or keep the camera moving and get a blurry moon and a sharp plane.
Still one of my favourites.

This is a crop from a larger picture shot on Canon 300D using
EF 70-200mm 1:2.8. It is roughly a 70% crop from the original pic.

I caught this bird on its fifth day of flight. So cool to get such a pristine plane. Too bad it didn't qualify for the big time.

This one is probably my favorite (of this year) because it turned out great with a nice blue sky, bright yellow helicopters, with some scenery in the background. I also had an awesome conversation with the pilot flying the Long Ranger.

This shot means a lot to me(besides being my fav)
1)Things will never be like it used to be before 9/11
2)Aviation traffic was best (in terms of numbers/variety) @ JFK in those days.
3)It reminds me of what changed the world on that horrific day in Sept.
