I agree number 4 is cool and I really like the last one.


I did notice you might have a dust spot on a few on these. What aperture were you using for these???

Hi Charming-Pig,

those are some really, really nice shots you got there! A wealth of dynamic action conveyed through them and the texture of the sky and smoke trails adds a strong three-dimensional feel to them.

My personal favorite among them is actually the first one, to a great extent because of how the sky looks.

However, I found myself pouring over the whole series really enjoying how well you captured the feel of these jets.

In a few places there's a little purple fringing in the highlights - secondary lateral chromatic aberrations. It's an artifact of your lens-glass. You need a truly apochromatic lens, which costs too much to even consider. Since you clearly had to take these shots from quite a distance and since you have no control of the Sun's position, there's really very little you could have done to avoid this - if you care about it, some careful post-processing can help adjust for this.

Thank you for sharing these - this is some of the best action/viation-shots I've seen in a long time!!

Cheers :-)

Thankyou very much! I knew when i bought the lens that i would have some disavantage's but i guess you get what you pay for hopfully in the year's to come i can get a good collection of glass, I will be sure to check the processing you mentioned.

Holy... erh... duck?
Awesome pictures. Love them and I cant say that too much. Maybe also because i always wanted to be a fighter pilot (actually i still do).
But beautiful pictures, no matter what...
