I am bringing my wife this time. My problem is that we will be staying on the French side and will not have too much time at Maho Beach. I am, however, looking forward to a drink at the Sunset Beach bar and a photo or two. My question to all my a.net friends is, what can a photog do differently afte...Jump to post
Thanks Ron, Dan, and Justin. You guys are the best. I met so many nice people on airliners.net around the time I snapped that photo. The aviation community is an awesome community. Great people, people who gaze up into the sky and see a certain beauty that some others don't see. I am going to try my...Jump to post

Hello, Season's Greetings to all from Boston. I wanted to show a photo I snapped last night of Venus, Jupiter and the moon. <a href="http://www.bostonherald.com/news/regional/view/2008_12_01_Cosmic_connection_in_night_sky/" target=_blank>http://www.bostonherald.com/news/reg...01_Cosmic_connection_in...Jump to post
I want to photograph the A380 flying "through" (silhoetted) the moon. I want to get two planes silhoetted in the moon at the same time. I want to make a little bit of money with companies that might call me after seeing my stuff on airliners.net I want my photos to continue by owned by me. I want to...Jump to post

Glad you chimed in here in the last few minutes. We photographers take our copyright very seriously. Let's hope a.net continues to forever grant the copyright of the photos here to their respective owners, the people who made rthe phto.

DM should become a "broker" to any of us who want our photos to make a little bit of cash. I understand that not all of us want to sell or care much about the cash part of this. So this would be a voluntary or "sign up" thing. It could work something like this. a,net could advertise themselves as th...Jump to post
I disagree with you. It is not just "losing sleep" over it. That photo he made is brilliant and, as much as people don't want to acknowledge, sellable. Any whiff of this being "fake" is not good for any of airliners.net's talented photogs.

Thanks guys... alas, it was rejected. I don't think I will ever have any luck using a 2x because of how it makes things slightly soft in focus...Except of course the moon silhouetts..

So these are both taken with a 600 f4 Canon and a 2x teleconverter....so....the sharpness goes a little with the 2x teleconverter..If I solve the teleconverter sharpness problem with too much sharpening I lose, and if I don't sharpen to keep good grain then I lose too because it's still a little sof...Jump to post
