Maybe it's just my screen, but a number of the shots look overexposed. And in some the sky doesn't look the right color...the sky in the NW747 shot is kinda green-ish on my screen. What the Futt was Futt doing with your edits?
Seriously...now that you've got a DSLR, you should learn how to edit pictures yourself so that you can do things the way you want to do them.
I hope you remembered to change back your settings from the last time we went out spotting at LGA
....remember that crappy overcast weather where I showed you how to overexpose shots? If you left your camera on +1 exposure compensation, your shots on a sunny day would not look so good.
Wish I could've been there for some of that action with you guys...I didn't get around to spotting in PHX
over the weekend, but that's gonna change when I'm back there for the Fourth of July weekend.
