    Hey guys

    Here's my take on the airshow. I got excited when I saw that it was going to be clear weather but unfortunately that constant blue sky and full sun caused a lot of photos to be backlit and ruined. Regardless, I got a few which I'm quite pleased with. The flying shots were all taken with a 300mm f2.8 and the static with a 18-105mm. I was quite annoyed that the b52 didn't fly. The poms seem to have their E3 at every show. Where are the other planes such as the harrier, tornados and eurofighters? Not a lot has changed between the last 3 shows.

    1,3 and 7 are cool. But feels like they are lacking either contrast or more sharpness. not sure.

    GK

    Wowee... Those are some nice crisp shots there.. I prefer the light look them, rather than the underside of them all turning to dark shadows..

    Well done! :)

    How many of those are 100% crops?

    Cheers mate. The only cropped shots are 5, 7 & 9, 9 being roughly 70% crop.
