So I shot this today...unfortunately this is the only location at SFO (and not many I know of have shot from here) where heavy departures are easily viewable from up close, but international departures are primarily in the mid afternoon hours so the sun isn't great at all, as you can see. That said, considering the rare angle, is it likely to be accepted, or shall I quit trying to shoot shots like this altogether?

bad motive...LOL. Yeah I suppose driving 30 miles to get a new angle is pretty bad motive  Big grin

Hi,

Sorry, just looks too dang compressed/blurry too...

Neat idea though, cool for SFO... Forgot to mention, definitely the type of image that should be on myaviation.net  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Common angle, just un-common to your airport. Not rare enough to overcome all the obstacles pointed out above.

30 Miles? Piece of cake. It is 34 around the perimeter of DEN.

I would keep shooting there, just at a different time of day.

I'll just give up then - there really is no other time of day available for that runway.
