Spotting From The Philly Eagles Game

Wed Nov 22, 2006 2:46 pm

While watching a boring Philadelphia Eagles vs Titans game last Sunday, in which the Eagles eventually lost, I began to notice and pay more attention to various airlines passing near the stadium on short finals into PHL. The weather was terrible - dull, overcast etc. I managed to take about 45 shots. In most of the shots, the planes were blocked by the stadium's flag poles. Below are the best 3 shots I got. Your opinions as to whether these shots are worthy of A.net db would be appreciated.

Hi Ken,

although they are pretty interesting, they are not for A.net. The planes are too far and the stadium is rather distracting.
Nice for personal collection none the less.

Yaaa Vince Young! Hook 'Em!

Umm... but back to the shots. I think they'd get motive/distance/quality rejections. It's pretty cool seeing that stuff, but my eye was first drawn towards the stands, which isn't what Anet is about... I'd definitely upload them to Myav.net though. $0.02

Thanks guys. My first inclination was to delete them. But one never knows what unusual shot would be acceptable.

I will take your advice.  checkmark 

I was going to caption number 3 photo as: "Captain I need to take a quick peek at the Eagles game before we land".  crazy

I think so also..I like the idea you were trying to capture, but I found myself spending more time looking at faces rather than the aircraft in all three examples. eyepopping
