Re: The Eagle has landed (2010 edition)

All are great, but having a soft spot for burners I must say that #5 and #10 stick out. Cool paint schemes too :clap:

Re: Hyakuri Nov 29th

Simply beautiful!
That first Phantom shot is too perfect in some strange way, like it's arranged by a painter or something... I meant that like a compliment :smile:
Congratulations to a superb set of photos!

Thank you all for the positive feedback Regarding the signs... As I said above, I had got a permit to shoot pictures of the base and the activities there, I just saw a bit of humour in taking a picture of a sign saying photography is prohibited I don't know about the regulations in other countries, ...

Very nice and close photos, Daniel! The Tummelisa with Mikael looking up is a bit special.

As for Draken, there is also a danish TF-35 in Scandinavian Historic Flights fleet. http://www.shf.as/htm/aircraft_draken.html

Hope you're not tired of Legends pics...

A selection from three days in Duxford. Although many aircraft were grounded, crashed or not attending due to whatever reasons, Legends was great. Sunny weather, very good flying, Spitfire Ale all gone on Sunday... I gave it a go with long shutters, so PQ is a compromise... http://i699.photobucket.c...

Re: Biggin Hill 2010 pics

Filters are the work of the devil. My personal technique is to dial in some serious underexposure when I know I'll be tracking through the sun, close eye as the frame becomes very bright and fire several shots in a row. All you need to do with the resulting frame is punch the blacks up a bit for a ...

OK, I'll give it a go. Favourite aircraft of mine in a kind of creative photo. Draken against the sunlight gives the impression of being under water.
