Great pictures!
I love aviation as well, and i'm 15 years old! haha a little bit of coincidence
Not sure if this advice would fit those images, but if you leave a little bit of space in front of the plane it will give the idea of movement/speed

Nice shots. Love the Piaggio Avanti in #1 (but then, I just love that plane)...

Otherwise, I think the Emirates and Virgin shots look the best (lighting/ composition) of the bunch.

GabrielFFontes- There was a space infront of the aircraft, I've just cropped down them so that they fit the forum better! Send me a PM about the aviation.

Panoguy- Thanks for the comments! They're greatly appreciated.

Great shots. Thank you for sharing.

+1 with panoguy on the Piaggio.

But my favorite shot is #2 (by far IMHO). I feel that it is the best composition (frame, colours, action) of all. Great and unique shot.

My 5 cents..

I used to go plane spotting on the direct approach at Manchester "Ringway" Airoprt in the late 1950s. Boeing 707s, D-C 8s, Comets, Viscounts, Britannias, Bristol freighters, Dakotas, Dragon Rapides... wish I had some pics! Nice to see the new ones.
