The first Air Legend

Sun 23 Sep 2018, 5:40 pm

Hello hello :smile:

I decided to reach Melun-Villaroche airfield at the very last moment and it was good, very good, my personal highlights were the Avengers, the P-47, the CAC Boomerang, the Noratlas and of course... three Hurricane :love:

It was nice to meet the sun again after Radom ;)

Very nice set Simon. :clap: One question (shot 9). Is the lead Spitfire focus a Depth of Field issue, or an intentional preference? ( I didn't look for EXIF data :wink: )
Not easy to pick a favourite, but shots 12 & 33 are standout captures!

Do we know where the Zero T6 in pic 23 resides.

Looks like a difference in speed between the two Spits (relative to the photographer), causing the one not focused on to be blurred.

Hello, thank everyone for your comments :smile:

About the Spits picture, it's indeed a difference of speed between the two aircrafts ;)
For info... 1/100, f/11, ISO 100, 240mm

The T6 « Zéro » is owned by L’Amicale Jean-Baptiste Salis and based in La Ferté Alais ;)
