OK I really liked the reflection in the nose of this plane - is there anything about this one? (I was bored at the airport!!!)

i think if you just fixed the symmetry a bit on the first one.. i.e. crop off the right just a shade it will look pretty good..

i'm pretty sure that's a Boeing 737. you can tell because the bottoms of the engine nacelles are flattened out a bit to allow use of larger turbofans and still provide safe ground clearance. the A340 is a much larger airplane with 4 engines.

nice pic, though... i also like the reflection on the top of the cockpit...

One of the best shots on planes I have seen. Cool. The rest has been said. Kind regards. Jaki.

Hi all,

Well I didn't think it was that good!! Thanks guys.

Dustin; I have seen so many shots on here where people center the subject and get told not to. I thought that a just off center would be interesting - i personally thought it should have been perfectly centered but i guess it just underlines the fact that there are no hard, fast rules to taking photos.

Squirl; of course its a 737 - one ofthe other flights i took was an airbus (the casualty of flying at midnight !!!)

Thanks again,

Dom

No problems Syd, to be honest I was expecting to see Bananas in the cockpit!

Also, American Airlines doesn't have any Airbus A340s, but they do have 737s.

off-center for many shots.. but this image was about symmetry.. so perfectly straight on would work well.. like it has been said, rules are meant to be broken, and sometimes rules are superceded by other rules.. and then they can be broken.. so it ends up being a big mess, and you just go to w/ what is aesthetically pleasing i guess.. hehe..
