Great set. 2 & 4 for me. Love the camo scheme on the Polish vipers and they look great with CFT's attached. :clap:

very nice!!

Not sure about the out horizened pics, but that's just a matter of taste! Is the first one a HDR image?

Again well done!

The off-level ones would work better if levelled up for me, but they are all fine images, shot 4 has to be POTW!

This is the beauty of winter shooting ... snow on the ground acts here as a large reflector and fills the underside of the jet with light.

thanks for the comments

Great Photos - is this Poznan? I was there on business in November. If the opportunity arises again is Poznan spotter friendly and if so where is the base - next to civil airport?

when speaking about the angles, while the decision on shots like 7 or 15 is much a matter of taste and personal preference... i will be however defending angles
on pic no 5 - in terms of photography/coposition the angles goes with this picture IMHO - first get rids of most of foreground snow that would be present
on straight version, also the angled line formed with jet "hull" crosses nicely with angled line formed by underwing hardware and as a result pilots face is
in the upper third of the image where viewers eye goes naturally (not sure how it's called in english... i mean the rule of thirds)

thank you very much for all the comments, really appreciate them :smile:

For me, I like to see some variety in the way the images can move away from horizontal references. Great jet images all the same though.
Watermarks - yeah, but no, but yeah but.............NO!!
