Spotting at YMML

What do you guys think of this piece into the action Down Under? Any feedback I could use to improve? This was all shot on a Canon EOS 1300D.

Thanks everyone and I’ll see you round. :)

Thanks! It was all worth braving the weather to catch some of these special liveries. In fact, I’m saving one for part two.

Fun Fact: back in 2016, I was supposed to be flying on JQ432 ON THIS DAY!! But, as usual, Jetstar stuffed up again… so I was put on JQ444 which was 5 HOURS later.
