    This is the first ever air show i've been to so it was a bit of a challenge to get used to taking pics of fast planes, it was amazingly good fun though and i soon got the hang of it. In all really enjoyed the day, sunburn and all.

    Is there anything wrong with them guys? :confused:
    I don't wanna sound big headed but i was really proud with these shots as a first time effort and didn't think they were bad or boring, but judging by no replies maybe they are. How about some C&C please

    You should be very proud of them, for a firs timer at this sort of thing they are very very good quality photos!

    I love the 3 way split from the reds, a confusing but superbly timed shot!

    Nothing at all wrong with those, For a first attempt these are very good. ;)

    I visit quite a few air shows and get worse than these so be proud of them mate. :)

    If I could just make one comment try to make the colours "POP" a little, Its hard to get the exposure just right when shooting into bright skies but have a play in Photoshop with one or two.

    One of my shots from Waddington a month ago.. :)

    They are all good pics but for me No 15 is a classic one of the best red arrow pics ive seen well done.

    Very impressed. I'd be happy to have that quality of end result.

    Cool, thanks for the comments and advice :)

    Busterboy, you mean maybe up the saturation a little more in photoshop to give it the 'pop'?

    Yes up the saturation a bit and have a play with the levels just a little.

    You will be surprised how much detail can be found by doing these little tweaks.. :)
