It was taken the same day, at the same show, yes. Different pass, different perspective, different lens. I thought we were allowed several photos taken at an airshow even if it is of the same aircraft.  Confused

The first one, as I do like sillohoutte shots, I would have to pass on this one as the whole aircarft isn't being shown. The second, its a shame. Those are some awesome shots you and Steve got up there at TVC.

Agree with the first one Chad, just something about it that puts it somewhere between well lit, and poorly lit.

The second one rocks, as does the one accepted. I guess people would rather see countless A380 formation shots..... zzzzzzzzzzzzzz...zzzzzzzzzzzz..zzzzzzzzz Oh, sorry, dozed off thinking about them.  Wink

On the first one, without the ship in the background blocking the true outline - killer shot. As it is, it doesn't quite work for me. I do like the canopy color and silhouette.

The second one - I'm not all that clear on the rules for doubles, but I agree with Jeff - multiple shots of A380 flypast  yawn  don't compare to these two shots.

... and I wish you good luck with it! I can't stop looking at it... the detail on the aircraft is amazing (the 500mm perform really well).

Best regards,

Walter

I could quote Jeff's message but that would be redundant.. suffice to say that I agree with all his points!

An OT note, as an AirForce brat.. an Aussie Air Force brat to boot, the American F-86 Sabre never look quite right to me. The Australian Sabre (technically a CA-27/28 not an F-86) had a different engine (Rolls Royce Avon) with higher gas flow requirements so the intake was considerably larger.
The 6 50cal guns were also replaced with 2 30mm cannon giving the old war horse quite some punch.

Outstanding photographs of an great looking plane none the less.

Cheers



If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Hi Walter,

The one rejected for double wasnt taken with the 500mm. It was taken with the **trusty 100-400mm. The one accepted was taken with the 500mm.

**Seizing up so it will be sent to Mack early next week.  Sad

Chad, awesome shots as usual...

I think the ship in the background of the first one hides the aircraft too much if you get what I mean...

The second one, have to agree, is amazing!! Hope it gets though.

The rules of rejection for 'Double' apply for the same aircraft on the same sequence, shot by the same photographer. They apply always, even on great airshows. I remember a screener explaining this when talking about priority screening for this year´s Farnborough Airshow.

Quoting Fiveholer (Reply 1):
the whole aircarft isn't being shown

The whole aircraft is indeed being shown, but the silhouette gets confused with the ship´s silhouette in the background. Regarding the lighting, I believe the shot would have been perfect if taken later, with the orange colours of the sunset. I think that´s where this silhouette shots result better.

Great shots, Chad!

Cheers!

I don´t get your previous message, sorry.
Even though it´s a different framing, the double rejection still applies. It´s the same aircraft the same day by the same photographer.

Cheers!
