Well, today we had the local airshow featuring the Snowbirds over clover point. I took over 300 pictures in the 30 minutes the show lasted and most turned out half decent, more than i was expecting.

Here's the set: http://flickr.com/photos/tridawgn/sets/72157603903246543/

I like them. A lot. Especially the first, the third and the last.
Some of them seems a bit too overexposed. Kinda looks like a model plane in a studio ;)

yea, i was experimenting quite a bit with the camera as i have never really taken any action shots as of yet, So i was playing with the EV comp to see what different results i could get. the better exposed pictures were shot between +1.3 and +2.3EV depending on the background. The over exposed white backgrounds were +3 i think.

The third one is definitely the winner!!! :D Well done with that one. The rest are a bit overexposed due to the bright clouds.

I also got a couple shots that werent' over exposed but there wasnt too much detail in the planes but... I would have liked to have framed this one a bit lower but they were flying over us about 150ft in the air at 200mph so it was really hard to judge where they would be.

And this one...

Nice shots! Using AF-C I suppose? And matrix metering?

I love the snowbirds. Always a treat to watch them fly. Nice pictures.
