Alright, I couldn’t find the tag, thanks.

Yeah no problem :)

Pretty good! I’d just edit them so that the photos look a bit brighter.

I wish my first photos came out this good! Just up the exposure in editing you’re set!

Hey, we ask that you limit to 10 photos per topic. Other than that, Spectacular photos!

Hey there!

Awesome shots, especially for a first timer!

I hope you don’t mind, I took the liberty to play around with one of your photos and edit it and here’s what I came up with. (don’t worry, I won’t post or reuse it)

Hope you like it!


Seems like a dark spotting day. Great pictures for your first spot.

Some good stuff! You’re on the right track!

Tad dark but nothing some editing can’t fix

Great first session! I agree with others, edit it so it looks brighter.

Also I’m a fan of good backgrounds so maybe you could have some parts of the airport as the background instead of dark skies. Just a recommendation

Same deal, I just used Photoshop on my phone easy enough to improve the picture.


Nice, I just used the built in editor 😊

Amazing Edit! Nothing a little Lightroom can’t fix, huh.


Nice! It looks so much better when it’s brigher. Thanks for the edit!

Nice photos, KORD has a lot of aircraft coming in, and you got some nice ones. Though I would recommend moving the watermark on some images. I would move it close, but not on the aircraft, as that can make or break it. Hope you had fun spotting!

Shots came out great! And the angle is nice. I also spot at KORD. May I ask where did you take these pics from?

Sure. I took these over by the Schiller Park Metra Station

I found the spot thanks to this website.

Happy Spotting!

Another good spot here in Chicago is the lot of a vacant warehouse just north of 28C. It’s a great location for shots like these:

Only issue is, there are too many clouds here 😞
