Forget the last one.

The first, well the size is not right for here, its a bit soft, and I maybe would have waited till the guy and the tug moved.

However, a re-edit may work for this image. As it stands now I can't see it getting accepted.

Too backlit, I'm afraid.

Didn't we already have a discussion about that second shot not too long ago?

It's very similar, but a different shot (this is an A320, a couple weeks ago it was a 757). I think I need to go earlier when the sun is farther in the east to avoid backlighting.

For MSP shooting, shoot 30L/12R and the G concourse ramp during the morning hours. In the afternoon, move to the opposite side of the parking ramp, overlooking 30R/12L and the C concourse.

If you want, we could meet up sometime to do some shooting, IM me.

Thanks for the tips KaiGywer. Sounds good, I'll be back in MN in February and definitely this summer. It will be much nicer this summer since it will be easy to just stand on Snelling cemetary and wait for flights, rather than freezing your butt off...

The benefit of winter though...no heat haze  Smile

Did you take those pics on the day of the A380, cause i have a couple that look exactly like that
"I'd like to give a pilot report" " Ok go ahead sir" "Its a beautiful day in the neighborhood"
