SPOTM January 2020 - ANY airliner photographed in 2019 which has not been placed in a photo competition

Post by andygolfer » Wed Jan 15, 2020 6:02 pm

This is the SPOTM (Special Photo Of The Month) competition for January 2020 and the subject is ANY airliner photographed in 2019 which has not won or been 2nd or 3rd in either photo comp, i.e. not already in the hall of fame.

The subject of your entry should be a photo of one or more civil registered airliner, commercially or privately owned (including any preserved ex military with a civilian registration) taken in 2019 and which has not been 1st, 2nd or 3rd in one of our photo competitions. A nice broad subject to start the year.

Photography Competition Rules :-

1. Only one entry per user, unless posting on behalf of another person who is unable to do so themselves (children for example). If this is the case, please state so on your entry..

2. The photo may have been taken on any date, it does not have to be taken in the month of the competition

3. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not. HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.

4. The competition will remain open until 23.59 (UK time) on the 7th February 2020 - please note new extended closing date to enable anyone with a last minute entry some breathing space.

5. Voting will be conducted by a poll open to all the membership shortly after the closure of the competition.

6. 'Rule 6...' There's no rule 6 Bruce'

7. The decision of the moderating team is final.

8. All images must be posted in line with the usual CA posting rules (size etc.), please read them if you're not sure how to post.

9. The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.

10. Please also embed the images and not links to images, if you're not sure how to do it then shout up and someone will sort it out. It is permissible to change your entry before the closing date.

11. Do not comment on other member's photos.

12. A brief description of where and when the image was taken would be nice too.

If you have any questions please PM me

Good luck everyone.

I think the only airliners I photographed last year were the Dakotas at the Shuttleworth Flying Festival on 2nd June, so here's N103NA "Flabob Express" tail up as it departs as the first of seven Dakotas in the stream take off.
