    I spent about an hour at Thursdays practice for the Air & Water show. The Blue Angels were practicing and these are the best of the bunch. I tried using the tripod for a bit, but found that handholding worked better. Critique is welcomed.

    I will have to really crank up the shutter speed to catch these I guess:

  2. great captures! especially number 2... getting the exposure right on those dark F18's can be a challenge...
     
  3. Cool first shot.. wish it had a bit more contrast? Looks a bit washed out...

    Thanks Paul. I think I set the exposure comp. to +1, not positive though.

    Thanks Desert Rat - I added a bunch of contrast, I thought. It was very hazy Thursday. I may try re-doing it.
