I get in at around 15:30 and our flight leaves the next morning at 8:00. I made reservations for dinner in the CN Tower -- will this be difficult to get to? (if we are allowed to leave).

I want to draw some fantasy airports (sometimes I shock myself with the nerdy things I like). We all know about those nice diagrams on the FAA website. What software do they use to make them?
Thanks for the response guys. Any word on the runway 9 areas by the old El Dorado warehouses (I think they got knocked down)? Anyway hope to see some of you out there after the summer.Jump to post

Does anyone know if any DJs like Tiesto or PvD have their own private jets? I just returned from Ibiza and saw many private jets fly overhead and thought maybe a popular DJ was in them. Thanks.

The top photo is definitely badcentered. I don't think it's an illusion at all: the aircraft is clearly in the bottom right of the frame. Anyway, I suggest you either look online for some tutorials for Adobe Photoshop (or some other image editing software) or pay a visit to your local bookstore and ...Jump to post
I think Mr. Work is one of the best photographers on this website. His shots are original and always stunning. I also find him the most credible when it comes to the tech aspects of photography and general information. Great work and thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.

Why is it MSN 004? Isn't this the first airframe?
Wow Brian, you really pushed it with a lot of those! I concur with Royal-- none of those should be reuploaded. Also, a lot of the accepted shots seem soft. Next time I would sharpen a bit more.Jump to post

I think the composition is very nice. The smaller airplane pairs nicely with the small village it is passing in the background. In addition, the plane and village are contrasted with the large bare hills and the clouds further back make a pretty "rolling appearance." It's sort of like Maho Beach (wh...Jump to post

That type of shot is really great for the afternoons, but definitely not in the morning (especially if it's cloudy -- as Mario said, always!).

Thanks Mario. Yes, I have Joe's e-mail address. I was thinking of e-mailing Don Boyd as he always seems to know what's up. I'm just "shocked" that the guy lied to me three times in a row. Anyways, I am awaiting a call from the head of the MDAD security.Jump to post
Alright, I called the MDAD security office and spoke to the secretary. She said the officer was supposed to give me his name and the number of the office. They are going to identify him and call me back later. Again, thanks for you help.Jump to post

Nice shot, but look at how much blue sky is above the F-18. The two aircraft in the lower half of the picture make it very bottom heavy. In addition, the lower parts of the the C-130 are cut off. I like the composition though....flag and crew, etc.

Just because something may be within the rules, it does not mean that it is polite or appropriate.

I think this sort of crticism is wrong, unless Flavian wanted to know which pictures could be impr...Jump to post
Why on Earth would he do that? They have the right to say and express whatever they want, however offensive it is. If that picture is not Phil's, and they own the copyright for it (I do think it is), they have every right to do that. I don't know Chad, what's up with you today?Jump to post
No. The problem is that despite saying how awesome the shot was, you still denounced the picture as being soft and his lens inferior to another lens. The negative outweighs the positive.
How hard is it to think?

Mediocre shots are for myaviation.net. If you don't think that site gives the pictures enough exposure, think about why? People want high quality work, and this site delivers.Jump to post
Nice, small lens, but make sure you really know your limits with 200. I don't know anything about Denver, but it sounds like you need somethign long. With the 2.8 version, you can add converters (especially the 1.4) and still be in great shape. It is also very, very fast, and much more expensive.Jump to post

Canon's L lens selection cannot be topped. If you are starting from scratch, I would recommend the 300D at this point.
