Re: Gripen @ Sion

Very nice photos, but a bit heavy on the edits. No 4 is a great shot, but too overdone to come out well on my screen. No 3, on the other hand, looks superbwhit a bit of a2a feel to it! Gets my vote :clap:

They are sold.

Here is a video from a flight with Old Crow at Västerås.

Re: Axalp 2011 - from Äbeflüe - pic heavy, apologies

Congratulations! Very nice view and light from that location. Would love to go there sometime.
I like all of your shots, but the F-5 formation in #7 is the pick for me.

Re: Axalp Ebenfluh Range Tues 11th Oct-11 - Very Pic Heavy!

Don't mind loads of pictures when they are as good as this.
I envy you guys who managed to get the low level flare shooting F-18's. I was told about them and somehow prepared myself with a wide angle on my 7D (which I don't seem to get along with). Bad choice and no second chance...
Very nice set :clap:

Cancelled Axalp :(

My first visit to Axalp. Well, what can I say, Mother Nature saw to it that the whole thing was cancelled. Lots of water flooded the valleys due to much snow followed by warmer weather and heavy rain. So instead of putting on the live fire event, the military had to do what they actually exist for, ...

Very nice captures, and your heavy editing makes the pictures quite interesting. The first Tu is very cool and makes me think of the film Sin City :cool: If I have to pick a favourite, it will be that one :up:

Re: a step back into the past - Flying Legends (pic heavy!)

Nice to see something a bit different from Legends, Krzysztof!
I'm not sure I like the processing on all of them, but I think 5, 10, 11 and 13 work really well!
All in all a great set with interesting compositions and/or editing :clap:

Re: Photoflying days EBZR august 2011

Thanks guys! Dean >> I actually found slower shutters to be quite easy. For the three bladed T-28s 1/80 was enough, while the two bladed ones required somewhere around 1/50 or slower, which of course resulted in more blurry ones.. The ride is bumpy all right, but on the other hand your target is jus...

Re: Three Days at Duxford - 01/02/03Sept11*UPDATED*

I can see you're getting along with the Sony gear quite well!
Despite all nice Hawks, Spits and F-15, the Vampire shot gets the vote from me.
