Too close for comfort!

Taken on Friday 1st July during the Thunderbirds practice session at RAF Waddington, near Lincoln. They were really close and travelling fast too.

This a great shot, but I think you've cropped it a bit too much. It would've been nice to see more air above and below the aircraft.

Thank you Ian. I have added a variation to my original image showing a slightly reduced crop, as you suggested.

V2 is better with the added sky, - however the fact that they are moving to the right would also suggest you need to crop space off the left, and add space to the right to allow space for them to move into, - i.e less cramped in the direction they are traveling. A good shot nevertheless.
