:lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

It's such a peculiar style isn't it? I can sort of see why people edit that way, for more visual impact, but I'm not really a fan either.

The rest of these are quite, quite brilliant: the A109 with flares, and the solo Al Fursan with smoke so thick he looks like he's just dragged his exhaust through a Dulux factory, are the standouts for me. :clap:

Why is it peculiar? It's a technique used in just about every other genre of photography I can think of. The trick is to make sure it looks deliberate and not just an unlevel picture that hasn't been fixed in post. I salute the creativity and wish I had the conviction to try it more often rather than stick to a tried and tested formula.

A fine set of photographs. I'm drawn to number 4 - the smoke trail looks incredible.

The whole 'Polish Slope' thing divides aviation photographers like few other techniques I know.

I too salute the creativity, absolutely, I'm just not a huge fan of the end product. Having said that, the example in this thread is (like the rest of the images) brilliantly realised.

WoW many thaks for comments and good words guys! :yahoo:

About slant on picture...
Its technique which i use to make more dynamics on the picture but i'm sure that some people don't like this. It's a really individual thing, i saw some photos with slant which not looks good too :) So its not a universal action to make a good frame. All photos with straight its just boring for me... Some people will like this and some don't we can't change that :)
