Smoking Red Arrows

By sparky1
This is a picture taken on the 13 September 2012 in the Guernsey Air Display. I was lucky to get in a great position high up in Castle Cornet which is a fortress on the East coast. They come so close to the castle, you could almost touch them.

A great aeronautical display, captured extremely well. My only suggestion would be to clone a strip of sky to the bottom and right hand section of the image in order to produce a more balanced composition. "A classic fine white border may in order also?"

Classic Arrows shot. Well composed, I would just leave it as is.

Composition is fine by me but it is about 1 stop under exposed. Mod offered with this corrected.

I'd leave the composition too.

As Phil says though, it is underexposed.

Fine shot IMHO. Looks sharp too. I agree it looks a little underexposed but this is easily corrected. Just be careful not to blow the highlights.

Thank you for your comments. I agree with you about the under exposure, but I was hoping that the under exposure of the arrows brought the smoke out a bit more, but I like the composition. I've looked at the modifications and I like them. Without criticism I would not get any better, so I thank you for taking the time.
