RIAT for a change

Post by The Doctor »

Having spent the whole week at RIAT this year, I think I may have been one of the very few people that genuinely enjoyed the Friday, I had good fun trying to make the most of the weather and messy static park.

Anyway, here is a selection of photos from a very enjoyable week (or at least a selection of the photos I've been bothered to sort yet).

C+C most welcome as its always good to get feedback from those better than you in the impossible quest for photographic perfection :grin:

Some interesting compositions and a great positive mental attitude! :clap:

My favourites are the departure images due to the very impressive slow shutter speed panning.

Super shots, although I don't like 'artificial slopes' in photographs. The F-15 take off my favourite... I personally really like background context and landscape in aviation shots. Top work, thanks for adding here!

Your panning shots are superb, especially the Tonka and the F15 :clap: . As has already been mentioned, I'm not a fan of slopy runways :grin: and some of the crops are just slightly out e.g. I would have left the whole of the tyre in the shot of the Harrier and missing part of the props on the A400 doesn't work for me. HTH,
Pat

Great set. I personally like the slanted angles and the closer crops, my only gripe being with the Typhoon shot, which is a bit unbalanced IMO.
