Would you be happy to sell me an A2 print of this shot? Or send the JPEG so I can get one from PhotoBox? If so please PM me to discuss further.

Wonderful stuff. Typhoon in the gloom is so moody but the Gripen jetwash is the pick for me.
He's done another book. You're joking.

Thanks for sharing these photos - I particularly like the harrier and the F86 shots. I have learned something about composition from this selection and will try to copy some of your ideas - great stuff
thanks Frank

Playing around with a trial version of Nik Color Efex 3.0 Pro (and Capture NX2), using a few photos from the airshow to practice on. Quite happy with the results. Didn't want to start a new thread for these so have thrown them in with my Leuchars airshow post.

33. Belgian F-16 display.

Image
34. Reds against a grey sky.

Image
35. Tornado GR.4 pulls round for another attack run.

Image
36. The Belgian F-16 again.

Image
37. One of the Red Arrows.

Image
38. Yep...the Belgian F-16 again.

Image
39. An attempt to recreate a 1950s look with the F-86.

Image
40. Almost HDR style pic of the Vulcan.

Enjoy

Love the first iconic B-52 shot. I really like the second B-52 shot too - a bit different.
