My first try at photographing at an air show. I didn't do too well, but learned a lot!!!!!!!!!!
Big respect to those who get it right.

These are a bit pants and I welcome any top tips.

I've not named any of the aircraft because I didn't get a programme and I don't have a clue what they were.

I like this photo a lot. One thing that might make it a little better is soften the image a bit it looks over sharp and a little fake. But a great image.

I like all three. Love the way you have got the action in the air as well as a good shot of the aircraft on the ground. Really adds to the composition

All three are brilliant compositions - not easy in such circumstances - the placement against the planes on the ground is perfect. I think V2 is my favourite for the dynamic angles of the aircraft in the sky.
In V3 I'm seeing a lot of colour noise in the underside and wheels of the plane on the ground, possibly from lightened shadows.

Normally you get the good shot of one plane in the air or a group, but to capture and actually plan to get these composition together is a touch of genous. All 3 would do well in front of me if judging.

There's no fooling you Moira. Wink Exposure was a problem.

You certaily know how to take images of moving aircraft Chris. Superb compositions concentrating on the bigger picture. As reference, Yaks in the sky, DC3 and Junkers JU52 on the ground. Ron.

Super shots V2 and V3 are too good to be tucked away as versions.

V1 is my favourite here, but the different angles in v2 also makes it an interesting capture

These have been very well composed and captured. Most air show shots just concentrate on the planes in the air but you have excelled at including the planes on the ground
