Blown away by this set.

I'm always amazed at how other people see the same show differently than I do.

What size lens were you using on the flying shots?

Stunning image after stunning image. High performance aircraft caught in sharp and dynamic images. Absolutely brilliant stuff.

For the flying shots most of the time 500mm + TC x1,4 or x2 means 700 or 1000mm.

Small update.

I don't like commenting on the comments as people can or not post comments, it's entirely up to them. However, only 500+ views for this thread? There's about 10 pictures of the weeks in here alone!

Nice slow shutter speed work. Nice set of images. Wish we saw more Mirage action on this side of the channel.

Absolutely stunning set, not a bad one amongst them.

I really would love to get in to photography but at the moment I only have a digital bridge camera which is ok for static stuff but not good at all for aerial stuff. It really daunts me with all the terminology and the plethora of kit that you need for different photographic situations.

I would appreciate any pointers as to which DSLR camera to start with - which isn't too expensive, also a lens that would allow me half decent shots at air shows.

Thank you for sharing these pictures.

Some stunning images in that set...

I really like the way that you are able to conjure up some of these shots from light conditions that don't look that inspiring... :clap: :clap: :clap:

All absolutely breathtaking and beautifully composed. Wish my images looked even half as good as these. Thanks for sharing.

I wonder just how much of those pictures were seen through the lens and how much is due to photoshop.

I really like this kind of comments :D What do you mean? How much I added ... aircraft, smoke, vapour, clouds? Nothing was add at all, what has been done is extend DR of a poor digital sensor which we have by now in our cameras. BTW can you tell me how to add composition, special moment etc?

I guess the only way to resolve what photoshop has enhanced is to stand the original unedited images alongside those posted :whistle:

So in my opinion, your guess is wrong. Only the presence in the field during shooting will give you a subject to compare the moment and how the photo looks like. Such a comparison as you suggest will not help at all.

:facepalm:
you cant make a good image great, but you can make a great image even better... that's my perspective on digital workflows

great work... processing is superb and your composition and eye for it is special... not to mention your panning skills :worship:
