Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Hi Niek,

FRA is always nice, thanks for sharing.

One point of feedback, it seems some of your pictures are a bit yellowish and could have used a bit of white balance correcting in Photoshop/Lightroom.

Regards, Anton.

Pre-Covid, Lufthansa was flying to KSAN with A343s. One of these days we're supposed to get A350s (or Dreamliners--either way its win-win for us). Of course, they have to restart the service first, right now the closest LH flights are to/from LAX. Fingers crossed.
