Something seems wrong with the colors and over exposed maybe? Someone with more experience will be able to put a finger on it.

Ha, yes. It will still take a lot of practice, though, so don't expect wonders right away.  

Anyway, they are both indeed overexposed - looks like neither will be recoverable.

I remember my first days too!

What settings did you have your camera on when shooting these pictures? What camera are you using to take these shots?

Great body!

I did it once in my life and found it very inetersting but it was long time ago   The best thing if you'll find someone close to you to ask practical advises right on place. It is a bit complicated to learn photography by books - as any 'handicraft' it need practice and other's experience as the right example.

To prevent pure white on shot I'd advise you to have -1/3-2/3 expocorrection (it is easy to improve black than white) and do not keep aperture fully open. Try to play with ISO if shutter speed is not enough for you.

At least camera's manuals usually more useful than car's. 80% of manual of my Toyota is about sound and aircondition systems and any technical matter contains only point I have to call the support.  

Regards,

Fyodor

Oversaturated too. Did you shoot RAW and then converted to JPEG? If so, try shooting JPEG and see what you get.

Ok, here's three more:

I know the planes belly is a bit dark, but I took the photo at 7PM and the lighting was difficult outside with the clouds and sunset. Would it be rejected due to bad lighting or do I have a case about the sunset? The sun is completely down by 8-8:30.

PS I am shooting straight to JPEG. Using Canon T5i with 75-300mm lens.

Thanks.

The light is fine, but they're both overexposed on the side of the fuselage.

Quoting vikkyvik (Reply 7):

Yeah that was the problem. I did not have enough light on the belly, but had too much on the fuselage.

This aircraft only comes here basically once a month so I'm hoping one of my shots will work.

Is this one alright with the minimal fuselage? http://i.imgur.com/a6ckuu4.jpg

Any feedback appreciated. Thanks.

Now it is much better.

I'd just add litlle bit of sharpness. If you use photoshop - try with Unsharp mask (amount 70, radius 0.2 as possible option - might be couple of kicks).
