No explanations needed for my choice this time. I wonder what that thing must sound like on takeoff, being there.

"I haven't seen this moment by my eyes in fact, just turn the camera downward, randomly keeping it at outstretched hand and took a series of shots."

Sometimes that's all it takes!

From a photographer we've not normally featured in this topic from memory. A really great photo, very dynamic and really superb details visible.

Yes, the one above is quite nice.

I'll nominate two shots:



First one is a great real air to air shot, and the MiG-31 is just beautiful. Not sure if the photographer is reading the forum, but nice shot Kirill - thanks for sharing it. :)

Good panning shot at night time from Szabo Gabor. These are tough to do as well, I've done a lot of them many years ago.

It's a tough balance between exposing the plane properly and note blowing out the background lights, getting enough shutter speed to avoid motion blur on the plane (and especially the ends of the wings) and using a low enough ISO that you don't get too much digital noise.

The closer to side on you can get, the easier they are to capture. And preferably if the plane is well lit, that helps enormously. I don't know about the photographer here, but I would always do these shots in full manual settings on the camera.

Same here. Never had much luck with any sort of auto settings after sunset.

(to be fair, I shoot all the time on full manual, but during the day, I could use auto or semi-auto, I just don't)

Awesome real air-to-air photo from Weimeng:



Nice change from the flood of heli-spotting photos.

And this is also quite interesting:

Amazing colors in the background of the first image. Very nicely executed long exposure as well.

Sick angle of that F-16. Love the paint job!

These two probably not as stunning as others here no matter from color or quality aspect. However, people who photograph this one in the airshow all shout WOW at that moment since this is the first time China Air Force did these actions and it's also the first time to see Vector Engine in Chinese Fighter Plane. Really Stunning i would say. From the first image (Cobra Maneuver), you can see the wake flame from the Vector Engine clearly. :o

Thanks Chris. Really appreciate! Sometimes weather conditions just get on our side. :D Cheers


Amazing photos! I've seen a few like this from TNCM where they are taking off in this direction, and I wondered, do they ever land this direction? I'm guessing not... :scratchchin:

Agreed - superb. That's not easy to pull off. Real air to air shots aren't always so common, but to do one at night - even less common. Then to do it with that level of quality too, great work.

The MIG-31 shot above for sure - that's the pick of those ones.

By the way, I kind of thought this was a very beautiful photo too:



Nicely done. :)

Yeah... That's doesn't work. Because;
a) you used a full URL
b) it concerns a rejected photo

It's also not really in good fashion to post your own photos in this thread.

Wow! Bravo screener, bravo photographer!
It seems to me alone that the proportions of the aircraft are very distorted?

Maybe not your average kind of WOW-photo, but I did let out a small wow during screening just now.
