My 1000th UKAR post with a touch of flare!

Postby RichPittman on Mon 23 Jul 2012, 6:48 pm

Hi all
After seeing Anton Balachievs excellent photos from the last Two Romanian airshows I had to go and see for myself
The Air show was different in terms of not alot/no static but the short flying display made up for it.
The Saturday Evening show was also different!
Safety limitations seem to be a little more relaxed... :cool:

Great set, C-27 is the standout.

How I'd love to see just one MiG-21 in the air let alone the three you saw :cool:

Superb, love the Mig-21's!, Got to ask though what speed/ISO was the Spartan taken at, not much prop movement for a night shot but it's really clear!
6D | 7D | 60D
11-16 f/2.8 | 24-105 IS L | 70-300 IS USM | 50 f/1.4 | 100 f/2.8 | 400 f/5.6

Thanks all for the comments.

Maisie

I was finding myself uping the iso as the Evening progressed.

By time of the spartan I was upto 1600.

I would normally shoot props at 1/250th but I had my lens set at F5.6 and was just hopeing there would be enough light for a decent exposure.

As it happens the shot of the C27 at Night I was most happy with was at 1/400th F5.6 at 1600ISO :smile:
