Wow those are sharp. When you've got it, you've got it....and you got it.

If the Air and Water show was this past weekend, then our Green Bay trip must have been a year ago this past weekend. Time flys...no pun intended.

So nice and clean Frank!

I've been off my game this year, not a single show after doing four last year. It's rare to see a B2 and you got a great shot of it in perfect light.

1. I'll start off with a photo that no one else has :)

Great going, guys. I'd love to have been in Chicago for this one. Frank...looks like you've carried over your tried and true sports formula to the planes....super high shutter speeds. I've tried to emulate this approach, often sacrificing a bit of ISO to do so. They really are sharp! Congratulations!
