Nice sharp shot, good detail. Experienced airshow shooters would likey use a slower shutter speed while panning to get more prop blur, but this works for me


I like the pano format too, though Ive uploaded mod2 as a 10 X 8. Would be better with some clouds probably. Minor tweaks in contrast and sharpening. Well done.


The image doesnt have a colour profile attached (sRGB) so make sure you remember this for future uploads.



Regards


Willie

A well taken shot, it is not your fault, but how much nicer would this be with a deep blue sky with some fluffy white clouds in it?

Thank you Willie,
For prop aircraft I like to use a shutter speed of around 1/150 - 1/250 sec. this gives a good blur to the prop. On this occasion I was without my tripod so, every shot was hand held. To combat camera shake I worked with 1/350 sec. most other shots that day show a static prop, perhaps these aircraft had faster props.
I will try to remember the colour profile.

Frank, thank you, no such luck, later in the day it became overcast so at least I avoided that.

Richard.

Nice image of a pair of P51's. They do look a tiny bit flat as do the later Pits Specials. Are you under exposing a tiny bit? Lift the contrast to add some zing. You are using auto exposure and no comment on exposure compensation. I would expect a little + compensation needed in such circumstances.

It's some time since I shot at an air show, but found a tripod far too restrictive. Hand held or monopod I would think.
