Great set of shots...

particularly like number 5 for some reason, and the sunset shots.

You should be very pleased with all of them though!

Lovely.Personally think the best one is the KC-10 on climb-out.
And hats off for posting the HDR/split Raw shots, I know we get lambasted for them but I like them.

No. 11 is the highlight for me out of a very nice set.

Thanks for all the comments guy's, appreciated as ever!

58Hustler - I'm not an HDR fan really, although an occasional shot can work well. The sunset shots (which I think you are referring to) - one which allows you to see the F-15 in more detail is shutter priority +1ex. The darker shot was taken normal exposure. Just two different ways of shooting giving different results :smile:

Cheers,
Chris
