Gero, in March I bought the 17" MBP with the anti glare high res screen. I have not been disappointed. I use it in several rooms in the house (depending on what my wife has on the boob tube). I talked to several Apple guys and they all recommended the anti glare high res for photos. I thought Shooter also recommended that screen. I got it because I may be in a room with a lot of light and the glare is not a problem. I guess if you are using it in a room where you can control the light, glossy may be fine.

Why wouldn't you consider the new retina display with the MBP?

+1 for Wrei's opinion.

I've shot in this room dozens of times but it still knocks me out when I walk into it, especially at Christmas........

Erich, I'll do my best! Not much flying going on for the next three months, but then I'm planning on doing more gliding photography and video! I'll be sure to post some old work in the meantime though!

Jeff, I'm glad you are getting to enjoy it! The good thing about civil aviation is the access, you can usually get a lot closer than military and try more angles! I love PHX for it's parking garages as well, where you can do some excellent nightshots. The two shots below are from 5 years ago (damn, that long already?) but I imagine it isn't much different now!

600 series flash units work very nicely. ANyone interested, I just posted two 580 EXII units on Buy & Sell for $300 each.

Ray,
I've looked at the new MBP with retina display - the thing holding me back is that I'd like to have more storage on there as I keep a large part of my photo library on the laptop, and with the 768mb drive, it will be out of my budget.

I'd certainly like that display though, as well as the light weight.

Jim -

I have been to that room many times. We are doing some great things with the family. Such a rich history there.

I'll talk to you soon.

Jurgen, US commercial operators have historically favored aero tow over winch launch because the economics don't favor it: it takes too many (paid) people to do winch launches safely, and the cost of operating tow planes in the US is much lower than in Europe.

Appears things are going slow this morning, so an oldie but goodie:

Gero, I have the matte screen on my MBP and I love it. The shiny one looked just too shiny for me, although by all accounts it's good for watching films on.

Glenn, I do like those sunset Apache shots!

Excuse my ignorance, but whose room is that? It is very fabulous.

@Gero - FWIW I have the shiny hi-res on my MBP and wish I'd gotten the anti-glare.

@Jurgen - While your commercial aircraft photographs are terrific, I've always thought your sailplane images were my favorites. Ever since I went for a ride in a Schweizer in Durango, I've been in love with the serenity and beauty of flying thermals.

@Tim - I've been very impressed with the 5D3's AF. Seems to be the equal or superior to my 1D4.

@Glenn - Your Apache images just keep getting better and better. The 2nd one on this page is a favorite.

@Jim - I've never been in that room and your photograph of it knocks me out. It appears they have a nice library upstairs

That room, is just beautiful. How much light did all that wood soak up?I think, inviting is the word I would use..

Steve, thanks for that! I'm sure it also helps that with aerotow you are guaranteed a longer flight.

Jeff, I'll try my best!

For now I'm going through my old 'The Last Time' folder from 2010 as I didn't edit most of that folder yet! Found this one and thought a rougher edit might do it good. What do you guys think? How can I improve this shot?

After years of trying, I finally got a razor sharp photo of Strega on course.
