The photos here were taken today (12.01.2019) with my Sony A77 dslr and my old 135mm manual focus lens.

I was at the airport to photograph it as it is a rare plane at my local airport and I don't know when the next 757 will visit.

I used these settings:

Photo 1:
+1 Exposure
Manual focus on camera and lens
f/2.8 aperture
1/500th shutterspeed
ISO-400
Centre focus point
Taken at 3:57 pm

Manual focus on camera and lens
f/2.8 perture
1/125th shutterspeed
ISO-800
Centre focus point
Taken at 5:36 pm

To my untrained eye, the second photo is better. But both just look like airplanes, undistinguishable from other commercial jets. And are airplanes part of overlanding?

I agree the second picture is better not due to picture status or camera control but interest. I'd recommend creating interest in post maybe B&W. If post is not your thing I relent to 1st comment. Its much more difficult to shoot for an audience then what interests yourself.

Airplanes my not be part of overlanding but photography skill building sure can be!
