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.

BA112 Reims-Champagne 17 June 2008

Post by 4Aviation »

Hi,

Today we had a great visit at Reims. Main goal was photographing the based Mirages in the best way possible. The day started out with a short briefing from our guide, and then to the end of the runway for take-off shots:

Them we did some landing shots and we drove up to the ramp to shoot the next wave of Mirages leaving:

After lunch, back to the end of the runway for more take-off shots, with different light:

Hi jah wise. Small tip for next time when you post your images. Maybe you are able to make a small selection of images who stand out sharpness-, composition and contrastwise. The quality differs a lot now. There are some excellent shots in your set, but also a few unsharp ones. Maybe something to consider next time ;-)

P.S.: Apologies moderator. I will stand in the corner now facing the wall with a giant hat signed "donkey" on it and write "I shall not post in Dutch" in 1000-fold ;-)
