5: Crazy Traffic!

This one showcases the incredible amount of traffic overwhelming KPSP. Insane amount of traffic for this little airport. Shoutout to @CapriciousWisewater for doing his best to keep things flowing.

4: Straight view down the middle

Manged to get a pic showing these aircraft taxiing to the long line for 31L.

This pic shows the amount of aircraft at their gates which is pretty much all the commercial gates there are.

Took when it wasn’t too busy. Not too much here.

Got a shot of more tails and the AC 77L. Not sure what he’s doing here, oversized.

That’s a wrap!

Well that concludes this folks! Hope you guys enjoyed! I will try to upload my weekly IF spotting /pic threads every Sunday.

Nice shots, however, could I recommend not to overedit your pictures to much. I noticed some images are a bit too sharp, have to much contrast etc. Some shots look best with just small adjustments! However, your image composition is great!

I really like your photos, I like photos taken where there is traffic

Yeah I noticed that for some pics. I’m a fan of sharpening and contrasting a lot. I sort of rushed the editing a bit too so that may be a factor
