Would you be happy to sell me an A2 print of this shot? Or send the JPEG so I can get one from PhotoBox? If so please PM me to discuss further.

Welll done with the Typhoon shot, I watched that on Friday but didn't get the photo.
Hope you managed to get the shot of the Belgian F16 on Saturday with the awesome shock wave :drool:

Wonderful stuff. Typhoon in the gloom is so moody but the Gripen jetwash is the pick for me.

Thanks for sharing these photos - I particularly like the harrier and the F86 shots. I have learned something about composition from this selection and will try to copy some of your ideas - great stuff
thanks Frank

Playing around with a trial version of Nik Color Efex 3.0 Pro (and Capture NX2), using a few photos from the airshow to practice on. Quite happy with the results. Didn't want to start a new thread for these so have thrown them in with my Leuchars airshow post.

Love the first iconic B-52 shot. I really like the second B-52 shot too - a bit different.
