Default First Try - Planes At Innsbruck Airport

First of all, I want to thank Jehan and shoturtle for their great help and the inspiration - thank you guys!!

Last thursday I was at Innsbruck Airport, trying to shoot some planes... and finally, here are the results

The airport is REALLY small - these were the only "bigger" planes during the about 3 hours I was there

#1 - Austrian Airlines... getting ready for takeoff



#2 - flyniki... taking off



#3 - Welcome Air... moments after landing



#4 - flyniki... Close-Up



#5 - flyniki... taking off again

I have no clue what types of planes these are - but I guess you can help me out with this

C&C welcome and appreciated

Nice panning work on the austrian air, like the a319 shots of NIKI you can see the jet and I like the catch of the main gear going up. Niki was that Lauder Air at one time. That was started by Niki Lauder the F1 driver? The only thing is I would ev them down 1/3 they are a bit over exposed on my macbook. Wild colors on the Welcome Air. I like it.

Thank you shoturtle - and you're totally right with flyniki, it was called Lauda Air some time ago

Trying to re-develop a bit darker from my RAW's

Nice first effort. My only suggestion would be not to crop so tight. A little more background could be helpful in many cases.

I agree, #7 is great. The mountains in the background are great and the framing, to my eye, is spot on.

Nice!
I like the pics. Think you´ve done a great job. I just tried panning my first cars, so I know it´s difficult.

Best regards/Daniel

Markus, wow..you've captured some very colorful aircraft. #3,#6 & #7 are my favorite. Great panning on #3 and nice clarity on #6 & #7. Also love the jet wash from the engines on #6 & #7. There are couple of things I might suggest:

1. Some of the pictures look like the've been cropped too much to the extent that resolution has been compromised. When I shoot. I try to minimze my cropping down by no more than 25%. This preserves the resolution. Not sure how far you were from the aircraft...it's best if you can zoom in as close as possible to minimize the need to crop. BTW, I think the close ups are very effective on aircraft shots...I'd just leave about 1-2 cm on each side (right and left).

2. #4 is a nice close up frame, but it looks like there is heat distortion in the image. I find that it is best to shoot earlier in the day when the temperature is still cool. Towards the middle of the day, light waves tend to get distorted by the heat and shows up especially in close-ups. Fall and Winter provide the best shooting conditions.

3. I agree with Shoturtle...if you dial down the exposure a tad you might preserve some detail. It is a judgement issue since many aircraft with their lighter colored fuselages tend to force the meter to stop down the exposures anyway.

Overall it sounds like a great first day of airplane shooting. I am envious of your access to Innsbruck...it is on my list of places to visit! BTW, the jet appears is an Airbus A320 series.

bluenose, thank you so much for such nice words, especially about the framing - this is something I have to learn when it comes to planes

Thank you too Daniel - most of the pans came out blurred, but I got some keepers too
