Champaign, IL Football Charter And Flyover Photos

Sun Oct 11, 2009 12:06 am

Hey Everyone,
Here are photos that I took at the airport in Champaign. The fighter planes are F-16s. One of them has a Texas Longhorns logo, and the other has the Texas A&M logo. The first plane in the photo is Jimmy John's private plane. Tell me what you think!

None of the images on your site would meet the criteria or standards if you intended on uploading some of them.

To expand on what Mark said,
1/Turn off the date/time stamp, it serves no purpose these days apart from spoiling what may be an outstanding image. The date/time data is available in the EXIF data for each image in any case.
2/Take your time, most of these images seem to have been taken over a very short timeframe, slow down!
3/ Composition, many of these images are poorly framed, cutting off parts of planes especially nose & tails rarely adds to the value of a photo.
4/ Lighting some of these are back lit (sun behind the aircraft), rarely does this help.

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Most of them are definite motive rejections. You can't chop off parts of the aircraft or have objects blocking them.

Is the OP really asking if they stand a chance here? Or is he just trying to show us photos of what appears to be a special occasion?

Probably just showing it, since a photographer's account is free and this is the only place he can post, for free.
