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.

Not the best of 2011 but my portfolio instead!

Post by FrankCrebas »

Hi All,

Instead of selecting my best pictures of the year I created my areal photography portfolio with a lot of 2011 highlights. It is a ever changing collection and for 2012 I have some nice additions in mind that won't be necessary exotic stuff. But this is it for now. I feel very fortunate to have had these opportunities and to work with such great and professional people!

Well Frank, astonishing........... The F-16BM and the Mig-29 are exceptional in composition and angle/atmosphere! and the rest of your snapshots (;-) ) from the air keep repeating in my mind.. Absolutely the nicest portfolio i've seen this year!

Merry Christmas!

Greets

Edit: See, i'm looking at it again.... The solo Turk is hubba hubba hubba as well.. and the flare popping stuff.. :shock:

Edit2: OOioioi the Hornets and the Grippen...IT SUCKS!... that i did not take those myself..;-)
Groet,

Brilliant shots Frank! Well composed and exposed. Not sure which one I like most, but the two Hornets look really good. Incredibly close to each other and to the Skyvan.

The difficult part is getting in the right position, if u know what I mean ;-) still I miss some variation in background! Great job, Frank.
