First and last light is always good. This one I liked:
That was very early in the morning, but I had to get up even earlier to get out there in time - as I live far away from the airport.
Otherwise, I like making use of every little bit of "last light", where ever it comes from, the sky, or the plane, or background light for that matter:
That was F/4.5 at 1/15sec. I used manual settings to avoid the camera getting confused by the port lights in the background. Unfortunately, I don't really have enough focal length to adequately get those shots absolutely full frame. It's the reverse of my other famous Emirates B777 takeoff shot. There is another angle I'll try for that one that will get a very different look.
I don't really care if they wouldn't make it here - even though they might if I spent some time editing them. I just put them straight on my site with the minimum of editing needed.
