I like planes and I like photography and more than that I like it when those two things come together in the perfect picture. I'm a planner and so normally have a plan when I go to the airport. I try to execute that plan and usually it works out for 50 or 60%. But sometimes I get the full 100% and then I receive "The Kick" and usually I know it at the moment I press that shutter button.
I know for sure that at least some of you feel the same. So let's forget the screening process and acceptance rates for a while and show some of your pictures which gave you The Kick. Plugging is allowed but share the story. I'll start:
I was trying for a while to take the ultimate take-off shot in dusk or dawn light. A shot which is done so very well by Wietse de Graaf and Luis Rosa. After struggling with the right exposure, time of day and position along the runway I got it finally right! It's by far not my picture with the most hits but I got a kick from it.
