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.

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.

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

Quoting Maiznblu_757 (Thread starter): 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.
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.
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!
