Following taken with the 70-200 f/2.8L IS - only cropping is just from the top and bottom.

Boston Logan airport.

No tips, Jay? Never really tried aircraft photography before. Prob won't get another good chance for a while, being busy - let alone the draconian, power crazed cops. Shame, but the big beasts are cool to watch!

Nothing concrete that I can point to and say "You should have done A, B or C" no...

As most know, I'm a fan of the "artitistic" approach so these appeal to me based on light, framing, use of negative space, etc...

IOW, I can tell these were shot by a photographer and not someone who is just a plane spotter with a camera.

I agree. Really enjoyed your post-processing which changed otherwise boring shots into incredible ones. Great job.

I like #5 the most. What's the crop ratio on the later ones?

Photo #1 is the original size. The rest are 2:1 ratio, with the one on the private jet (photo #4) being a little tighter on the crop. The rest are the original width - just the 2:1 ratio cut off dead space above and below.

Only PP work, besides the cropping, was to adjust the white balance accordingly, and brighten the photo. Nothing else done.

Thank you. That crop ratio really adds to the images.

Nice ones - you have some other good ones on your Smugmug that you should post on here. I especially like the 747 right after takeoff w/ the lights on and water/end of runway at the bottom. I also prefer some of the 747 shots that precede the 3rd one posted here - I think the angle where it cuts the red stripe out of the tail (in the 3rd one here) just makes it look funny as it is not as identifiable as an AirFrance jet.
