Hello to all,

Some of my friends on TrekNature used to make sensational in-flight bird photos. I tried to learn their skills, and managed to capture an extra big bird. :-) The district where I live in Cork City is ideal for photographing aeroplanes, because we're just under the air corridor, so I can practice a lot. Unfortunately, most of the photos I make are rubbish - but that's life.

Model: one of the 34 Airbus A320 types, owned and ran by the airlines Aer Lingus. To "aeroplane gourmands": on the workshop photo you can see all the "personal" datas of this big bird, collected by my son László Kaposvári Jr.

Photo: made on the Curragheen riverside, exposure mode: shutter priority. PP: cropping, level adjustment, after the necessary re-sizing selective sharpening on the airplane.

The photo was made in August - but in October I flied back home with exactly this plane! View from the airplane above the Dublin Bay here.

Bom dia Laszlo,
It's a great pleasure to see this result of a very special shot of this "big bird".
I highlight the good composition with upward point of view, the perfect sharpness, the superb depth of field and good lightness.
Have a nice day,

I start to shot airplanes since my sun like a lot.
