Hi Hans, lovely sharp image, and good cloud formation especially the sun glowing on the clouds near the nose of the plane.. just makes it.


What a BIG BIRD!! excellent sharpness on this Hansie! LOVE the clouds here. It makes the photo more interesting, than just blue sky! Well done. I like the way the plane settles in the bottom third of the shot!

Hello Hans! A true beauty! The sharpness, angle and beautiful sky make it a great result. Very well done!


Nice shot. I love the clouds too.It caught my eye straightaway when I looked at your photos as, guess what, it is an Emirates aircraft. It's not one of Whiteknight's Airbuses though.

I've tried taking pics of aircraft, but need to get the kit to do it. I think I can get an adaptor for my Lumix FZ18 to taske Telephoto and Macro lenses, but haven't managed it yet.

Schiphol is a very busy place, isn't it?
