Well these were my first real attempts at aviation photography, taken with Pauls Fuji S5500. I have definitly caught the bug, and am itching to get out there again and to take better shots. I dont have any real editing software unfortunately, so all shots are untouched, some were better than others, I have tried to include a selection of everything we saw yesterday. Enjoy :). http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA005.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA006Medium.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA026.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA032.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA035.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA036.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA045.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA050.jpg http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA078.jpg I actually quite liked this last one, a very hurried shot because the camera switched itself off when the 757 began its take off roll (GRRR), and I caught Paul doing what he does best ;) http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f188/012tom012/LBA081.jpg Thats your lot

That third shot of the Midland Airbus is nice and sharp, Tom. Practice makes perfect, mate. :D

Well done with your first attempt Tom! You gotta start somewhere...and a day with better weather will give you a much fairer chance.

Nice pics, Tom! Especially for a first attempt in gloomy conditions like that, the bmi shots are my fav. I really should get back into it more, I've hardly taken any aviation pics since the MAN meet! :o The airport must lose it's attraction slightly when you work there...!
