Hi fellas,
First time posting these shots here. Was at the show today, and also first time taking plane shots......now I know its not easy, esp for fast fighter planes. Using the old FZ10 and really difficult to focus on the fast jet aircraft......more hopes on slower planes and static ones!

Anyway, appreciate any comments for first timer. All taken with FZ10

Airbus 380
#1: Wheels down


#2:Incoming!


#3: Going up


#4: Bye


Not so good shots.....grainy

#5: F15: Thrust


#6ive


#7: Fly past


#8: F16: Face on


#9: POWER

Oh, good shots! I had fun seeing these, is the 380 the latest and greatest big Boing? The huge 500 passenger which many airports cannot handle because of the size? Hard to believe that age is overtaking a lot of the 80's type fighters. They still look very advadnced to me. Good post. Welcome...best regards,

Thanks for the comments!

The commercial plane is the latest AIRBUS 380. Carries 550 passengers, and has two decks! Singapore is the first buyer.

Rgd to the F16, its the singapore version. Not too sure what the bulge is for.

Oh I had missed this one.
Luckily I was scrolling the page by poster's name in search for some new macro from you....

Very interesting shots, and the ones I mostly like (undoubtedly because they are more unusual) are #2 and 4.

All the others are fine and I'm sure they'd have been even better with less overcast sky.

I think it's always good to make some breaks with the mainobjectiveof photographic interest and get involved in different things (and you ve always hit me even with your holyday beach photos,landscapes, zoo,lightningand other shots) just to differentiate and to get more eager to return to macros.
