nice shots, i wish i had that kind of variety here in phoenix, arizona instead of the 'ol america west and southwest. have you tried editing those? to me it looks like you could sharpen them up a little and boost the saturation and contrast and brightness a bit and it would make them look even better.

First of all, thank you for your comments PW, joelegg, GM, atreyu, Mc_GaNgStA and hms_endeavour!

Secondly, sorry 56k'ers for the long delay in downloading time, I hope you think the pictures are worth you bandwidth!

In response to your comment atreyu, yes, I guess these pics could so with some sprucing up. They don't look as good as my last two batches (that where taken in the early morning) as these ones where taken right in the middle of the day in the bright sun, causing lots of shadows and glare.

But I was happy to make a compromise. A wider variety of aircraft and airlines over better picture quality.

I still had a lot of fun standing only meters away from the giants and tasting the engine paraffin right on the tip of my tongue!

Next time I go planespotting, expect something different... that is all I will say for now 😉
