I hear the USG parking lot across from O'hare International Airport is a good spot to photograph planes, unfortunately everytime I go out to shoot they are not using the runway there. I snapped these from on top of a parking garage as planes were coming in from the North. I did have an encounter with the police up there but surprisingly he just asked if I was taking them for personally use and told me to have a good day.

I think I may have gone a little excessive on increasing the saturation on the blues on some, let me know what you think, I've got thick skin :).

That front 3/4 shot of the BA 777 is pretty nice.

Keep at it! KORD is on my short list of airports I would like to get to. Lots of variety and international traffic!

The blues may be just a bit hot, but they're nice shots.
