Spotting at Frankfurt on 03.10.2011

Post by irfanjaffry »

Dear friends,
Thanks to unexpected sunny and warm weather in Germany, I had a pretty long spotting session on Sunday. I am sharing here some of the pictures that I took. Had no time to resize them or do any type of editing. So these pics are directly from camera to your screen :)
It was a long weekend here in Germany - Moday being the re-unification day of east and west Germany; and the motivation to go for spotting on Sunday was for a chance to capture PIA plane. Unfortunately the flight on that day (PK769/770) was cancelled :-$

nice shots though some of them can be excellent if you do some post processing.

thanks for sharing...

Agreed. As said, could not get any time for that. Will try the next time I am there, although I see very less chances of any spotting this year.

Thanks turbotraker. Your encouragement means a lot. This was the same spotting area where we met. Though, I tried to apply all the tips you shared with me I still see a lot of room for improvement. As said, I didn't get time to do any editing on these pics. If there are any suggestions/criticism, please do share.

I remember the day very well, how could I forget the 'desi chaa'???

Your photo have improved alot more than before you used the tips I gave you. There are a few small faults I can still see :).
You need to get the CMOS sensor cleaned on your camera or close out some of the heavily visible dust spots. The rest I will PM you soon and explain how to get a better picture.

Your pictures can look so much better with very little effort for example:

thank you, I am using a Canon 450D with a 100-400L IS lens. But must admit taking the photo is only 50%, the rest is in the editing.
You can take an average RAW image and edit it to a stunning website quality photo withing minutes ;).

Thank you turbotraker. By posting such good quality photos; you have now forced me to spend some time and edit my pics which I have resisted to do for almost 3 months now :) I will try to clean my lens as well as edit any of my pics and will share with you. Thanks once again
