After the EWR convention, Futterman, Josh, Mike, Andy Martin, Eric and I went to do some spotting at EWR.

I had never gone there before. Security is so tight and annoying and the airport is far from me so it's just something I never explored. I'm not even sure what runway we were at (can you guys confirm?)

The sun was VERY harsh. I was actually underexposing a full 1, when during the day, I usually do -.5, or in really harsh conditions, the rare -.66.

I threw on my polarizer. The disadvantage being that it slows down my shutter speed. So a lot of my shots were 1/125, or 1/250 if I was lucky. It did cause a few blurred shots, but I was pleased.

One dumb thing I did was to stack the polarizer on top of the UV filter. With both on there, if I got any glare, it would reflect funny in the photo as though I was watching through a double-pane window.

Either way, here are some of my shots:

Nice shots...even if you didn't have the most fun or the best conditions.

I'll stay local ;-)

Thanks, Mike. My anus still hurts, but it was well worth it!

I uploaded a few of my EWR shots to jetphotos and a.net. Still waiting to have them screened on a.net, but they're now on jetphotos. I was excited about my first time spotting at EWR as well:

I couldn't believe my luck seeing the Continental 757 with winglets!

Nice shots, Josh. That lot really looks great on a short body. I was never a fan of it otherwise.
