Sandra

Your pict particularly the 2nd one are impressive.
I should have gone too if not for those Bird in Flight little project I was doing.
My wife is superstitious. On both occasions I went so far, I witnessed actual accidents. Maybe I did not go and things went well

ok, i see you used spot. i did that before and all the planes were underexposed. suggestions were to use multi segment metering to balance the shot out. october i'll find out.

Personally, I found that the multi segment didn't work well either. I would suggest the old fashioned approach of centre-weighted. It tends to be the standard setting on my camera now.

BTW Sandra, excellent pics. You don't need a better zoom, as these pics are fantastic.

i'll try that in oct. darren. i'll try them all.. fortunately i shot the last one totally in raw so i was able to salvage many of them. here's an example of combining two different EVs from the same image.

I had the same sort of thing Roy.



I think it is because the planes are not big enough in the viewfinder.



However CW does mean keeping the plane nearer the center to start with.

Thanks for the nice comments I am glad that they are liked, I get so critical of my own photos.
