My latest upload below has suffered from the dreaded compression issue to the extent that the version in the queue is now less than 200kb!! However comments welcome please on composition/motiv and lighting etc,I will be withdrawing it from the queue later.

Hello Andy.

I really like the motive in this photo - cropped very well.

I don't see compression as a big problem in what I see - for me your main issue will be the slight softness in the main aircraft; not surprising given the speed he must have been coming towards you and the challenge freezing that movement! I also see slight oversharpening along the edge of the airframe above and then behind the cockpit.

A very nice shot overall. Lighting could have been better but surely not fatal to the image. Just how generous will the screeners be about that slight softness/blur?

Hard shot, must have been fun to track as I'm sure the closure rate was 'slightly' high on these two Mirages!

What were your camera settings for the picture?

Thanks for the feedback. It was a difficultish shot to capture as the sun was not in the best of positions,hence it is slightly backlit. I was using a Canon 400D,as my 20D requires a new shutter. I was using shutter priority at1/1000sec,with an aperture value of F5 at ISO100. I was expecting them and have some nice shots of their approach,however they were closing at over 500kts and at only 3.5fps I was selecting my shots rather than attempting to machine gun them! I will re-edit and try adjusting the contrast and use some selective sharpening as I believe it is a softness issue in places rather than blur,although there was a fair amount of blur/haze produced from the jet efflux of both aircraft. It was one of those truly once in a lifetime experiences and I have only seen such speed at low level on a handful of ocasions,I was dumbstruck for a few minutes afterwards. The image was captured at 176mm and is more or less full frame,they were too close at 70mm as they passed me!!
