    Though I like the composition in #1, & #5, they are just too noisy and soft to really enjoy.

    yeah there is alot of noise in all of those pics because i was using digital zoom in addition to the optical zoom. otherwise, i have no reason taking these pics :thumbdown:, but i like them. its interesting, almost a game, to me to try and figure out what kind of aircraft and airline it is.

    Well that would make it more fun, have you had any luck in finding identifying markings?

    Digital zoom doesn't really exist; it is a neater way of saying that the camera is throuwing away some of the info and manufacturing others.

    These pictues might be really interesting to a aviation-hobbyists site but won't attract much useful comment on a photogrpahy site because of the lack of detail.

    not for the top one, but #2 is a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747, #3 is a Virgin Atlantic Boeing 777, and #4&5 are a UPS Boeing 747 dumping fuel at about 7,000 ft

    Those are pretty cool, I think you would be better off cropping the pictures later, rather than using the digital zoom.

    I like the fourth one best because you filled the frame a lot more and the way the light makes the plane and the contrails glow like that looks really good.

    yeah its a little tough with these shots, but i figure it doesnt matter if i use dig zoom or crop, either way the quality will be less.

    So much fun! The plane in number 3 looks really cute. Two and three look like paintings, actually.

    NOISE ! I think that it just proves that all images do not need to Perfect in order to be be good, and to have atmosphere (Look at most of the "Classic" images from the "Picture Post" and "Life" magazines of the 40s to 60s). I know that you just pointed and shot. I know that there was no real attempt at "Creating a major work of visual Art" But to be honest in my opinion the same could be said for the majority of turner prize winners !!!. I see the images and I think they are Good. They make me want to look at them. They make me go "Hey ! Wow !". They make me want to try something similar.
    They're Great. Well done..
    You don't have to change the world with every image you create. all you have to do is amuse someone ... even if that someone is only yourself...
