Thanks to the screeners for allowing the artistry of this Paul Dopson shot to overcome typical adherence to distance/motiv/dark rules!

I was stood next to Paul when he took this shot and believe me it was dark !

i tried some of the same with not a lot of success , the trick was to try to focus on the afterburn using an unusually high ISO of maybe 1600 .

I just stood back in the end watched them launch ..... Fantastic to see in the flesh too ...

Well done Paul..
