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.

Probably not ...

The spirit was a bit gone at the end of the day. Let's put it this way : lots of folks (me included) have been waiting the whole day for the JSF ... and in the end, nothing, nada, rien, zip :-( and I am not even mentionning the f5 crash). I do not want to be negative about the Spottersday, this is a great opportunity given to us to enjoy our hobby and it is a perfectly organised ... thanks to all of you who made it possible ! ... I am just disappointed. I guess my expectation was much too high.
