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.

Here are some of mine. I tried to take some shots of starting F-16's during the dusk, wich isn't easy as we all know. Results could be better but I'm not unsatisfied. Here you go, also with some other shots:

Nice pictures!

It was the first time for me shooting in dusk and night conditions so I had a lot of trouble finding the appropriate settings. Fighting wih ISO, shutterspeed and low light. :wink:
Many thanks go out to the KNVOL & Volkel airbase for making this happen.

Here some results:

Image
1. J-199

Image
2. J-367

Image
3.

4. Nice trail. :D

Image
5. Somewhat of a art shot but I like the colors and it's something different.

Image
6. and the same aircraft... with the ghosts. :wink:

Dear guests of the KNVOL,

Was this a planned trip to Volkel or incidental organised ? Unfortunately I would have been there.... Nice pictures made by all of you, despite the difficulty to make pictures in an evening atmosphere.
Greetings
