I tried aviation photography for the first time (and only until now) a few months ago. I was actually very much fun. It was a bit cold, but I think I'll try again when summer is here. I haven't submitted any photos to Airliners.net though, since there are already plenty photos of the planes I photographed (and not sure if they would get accepted either). Here are a few of my shots:







I've heard that they are quite strict with new photos, not sure what it would take to get them through the process.

Thanx Dave, yes the photos are all taken during landing. I guess they're pretty "stardard", and so are the planes. It was not the most busy airport in the world, so I had to pick a few ones and stick to them. I'll probably spend a day at Copenhagen Airport this summer, it should be possible to catch a lot more there. :)

Could you show a few of yours? :)

Oh, and yes, I'm extemly wealthy, can't even keep track of all the air carryers I own anymore. :D

I've tried to take photos here at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, but they have secured the airport so well that it is literally impossible to take a photo of a plane taxiing on the tarmac without getting a fence in your way. I've tried some photos from a location about 200 meters from one of the two main runways that are used for landings, but my fairly able Panasonic DMC-FZ20 which has 12x optical zoom, has to be fully utilized to get a decent photo of a plane making an approach.

Obviously, at an angle where the plane is landing and moving from one side of you to another at a distance of 200 meters, having the optical zoom set at 12x makes it almost impossible to center the plane in your photo.

Any advice would be helpful.

@MLM: The only problem I see with your photos is that the bottom of the plane is too dark. I'd try and catch the plane at a lower angle, thus avoiding the dark underside of the plane. Otherwise, they look good to me.

@Rodrigo BSB: I think you had links to your photos a short while ago. They were very good. It's not easy to get photos accepted by Airliners.net.

@nakedyak: I think it's a screen shot from one of the flight simulator games. Someone else posted a screen shot before and it looked so good I thought they had designed the plane with a CAD type program. Except, you could see the sky through the engines.
