Nice one Shagster - a great set. I think I need to invest in a 2.8 and stronger arms.

Thanks for the driving too, it was a brilliant day!

Great set mate, who's the dummy who declined the offer in coming up with you guys.. :roll:
Just a small point, but a few look a tad over sharpened, particulary the twin-stick Tiffy & 100 Sqdn Hawk.

Query: Re pictures 6 & 7 the starboard tailplane leading edge of the Tornado appears "kinked" outboard, Port one seems to have a straight leading edge, is this something I missed or is it an optical illusion ?.

Brilliant pictures as well, Paul H.,

Makes a change from bloody tractors, that's for sure...

Seriously, very good indeed...but how did you manage to get the fuel bowser up that hill, that's what I'd like to know...

Bit of an optical illusion, especially on the port one - the taileron of the Tornado has a kink in the leading edge, but not as much as the photo suggests - a bit of foreshortening makes it look more than it is.

Detail and clarity on these is stunning-totally brilliant set of shots :topbombing: TonyO suggests you're using a 2.8 lens-mind if I ask what you're using it with?

Very nice Mark! The oversharpening on a few of the shots is a bit of a shame.
