Default Twilight landing at LGA

Decided to hit a different airport at twilight. To get a little different aspect of airplane spotting.

Looks like a great spot to shoot from... Love # 4 of the Delta 757 with the beacon flashing (great timing). Nice lighting on the Air Canada A319 as well. You just need a lens with a longer reach now

Yeah, a 400mm or 500mm, or just need a 767 or a300 to come into LGA. Or I could crop the shot a bit like the jfk take off shots.

ST: The tighter crop of the Air Canada A319 looks good, but I am beginning to see signs of IQ degradation especially in the sky...I still think you need the Bigma

Nah, I would rather have the ef 100-400L . But my next major purchase is the 5DMKIII when canon launches it next year.

Whoa...whoa...that's some heavy duty gear there...I'd be looking for those aircraft to be jumping out of my screen.

I shoot way to much in the low light to no light environment. The 5DMKIII, but Hards think I should get the 1DMKIV for the faster burst rate, lol. But it is almost 2x the price of the current 5D
