Agree Neil, more monotone works extrmely well. Another corker. Ron.

I think you're right. Together, the monotone grey sky and the silver grey aircraft result in a very graphic, very clean image. The little touch of afterburner just lifts it. (Sorry, no pun intended.) It all hangs together beautifully and your presentation is A1.

Wow indeed. A superb shot. I'm in awe!
You manage to get some great detail in your aircraft work. The shades of grey work really well here. I do love this lens, do you have a converter for it as well?

Great shot, very nicely composed & I love the blast from the after-burner. What I don't understand is, although the plane's travelling at a great rate of knots, the smoke is hanging around in the air as if it was coming from a campfire on a windless day.
PS What's all the green stuff in the cockpit? They growing tomatoes in there?

Thanks for your comments all. That is a good question Rog and I should probably have explained. Without looking at the shots either side of this one I cannot be sure, but one thing they tend to do in an f16 display is demonstrate the fly by wire by putting the aircraft in a manoeuvre that should in theory not be possible. In this case they do a high angle pass so the aircraft moves forward in a horizontal line but with the nose pointing skywards. The other option is it was doing a slow pass and I have caught it just as it slams on the gas.

As for the cockpit, maybe it is made by Oakley Wink
