Man spotting from your own backyard! It doesn't get much better then that. What kind of zoom does that camera have? Looks good.

A lot of the skills that will take your photos to the next level will be your performance in Photoshop. If you don't have it, get a copy. I don't have one right now, but once I do, it's yours.

That is where your photo really comes alive.

In all honesty, I'd recommend taking one of Art Brett's digital image editing classes that start October 1. If you're interested, let me know and I'll get you the info. Really worth it. I learned 95% of what I know in Photoshop from him.

Do you need a BEST FRIEND?

Bravo! It is really good to be you! I hope you feel better soon.

great shots dude!

I was thinking the same thing yesterday, how nice it is to have them over hte house like that.

May I suggest an Octoberferst Spoting even at your place?

My place is OK, but not as much traffic. Yesterday, those skytyping planes took off right over the house. For a moment, our house sounded like we were living on an old WW2 air base. Great gutteral sounds!

Once in a while, we get the other larger olders, the Liberator, B-29 and B-17, also, we have that Mustang and Grumman Avenger, always flying.

Just cool to havea view from the yard! Thanks for the pics!

Where in HB are you? I live on 89th, and 155th ave.

Do people in your neighborhood ever complain about the noise, or is it a way of life for them?

09-12-2005, 07:20 PM
Generally its a way of life, because the airport in many ways supports ther local economy namely the restaurants..but you have a few big mouths...the airport has been here for many years if they dont like the noise they shouldnt have moved here.

I used to live in S. Ozone pk,on 124th st., those shots could have been taken in my backyard, I love the Canarsie approach!
