Great shots Wade. I've been to Sun'N'Fun in Florida, but not to Oshkosh.

What lens did you use for these?
And did you use a polarizer on these (the first 2 look like it)?

Very sweet images, Wade. It is so nice to be able to shoot the planes will on the ground, especially the vintage ones with all of the detail and markings. Job well done!!!

Excellent series, Wade.

One of these years I'm going to make it up there, heck I'm only about 70 Miles away!!! My boss goes every year and he's in Minneapolis...

Great shots all of them, the colors are marvy :biggrin:

Chris, the first shot is with the 300 f4 AF-S with Circ polarizer, the second and third are with the 12-24 DX with Circ Pol, and 4,5,6 are with the 300AF-S without polarizer

thanks for looking Chris, sorry i should have posted lens info.

Thanks Frank, yes it is nice seeing stuff you don't see everyday, plus, after being at the flyin for three years in a row, I am getting to the point where I don't have to take as many shots (only 1-2 thousand instead of 3-4 lol)
since I have seen some of the planes before.

Mike, Bruce, Simon, Todd, and Gale too (almost snuck in there without me seeing you Gale!)

Thanks for looking, and for those of you who live so close.... Shame on you .... You should Go!!! I didn't even stay for the best airshows on Friday and Saturday. Where they do things like this: (from my 2003 gallery)

That F-86 Sabre is awesome! The Mustang too. You have done an excellent job on these. Definately will have to go there in the future.

Thanks for sharing.

Awesome work Wade. The compositions and crop choices are spot on! God, I think I remember playing with a jet like that polished alum one when I was a youngster!!

I'll echo all the others' compliments. These are stunning, all of them. The colors are brilliant, the exposures spot on, and the crops very well chosen. I really enjoyed this series. Thanks! :smile: :biggrin:

Ed, Biggs, Patrick, Steve, Jay, Phillipe,

You are all way to kind, thanks for the comments, Much to generous but glady accepted. :)

A comment...........sometimes I see folks getting caught up in the equipment race (not here on the Cafe! thank goodness, mainly those "other" forums) yet the "lowly" D70 can take action shots and can meter pretty good if you are carefull, so, my purpose for posting this was two fold, I thought I would post some images with a rather modest setup, and show some airplane shots too. The 300 f4 AFS and D70 makes a great intro long lens combo, and works pretty well for aircraft at airshows. It is just about the right size, and the 300 f4 makes panning much easier than my big gun. 3.5 lbs vs 7lbs, yikes, I would have been dead after three hours. lol

I also have to say, that I have been shooting planes for a number of years, and just like I did on the piano and trumpet (me being a music major) it is all about practice, practice, practice, but you know, this practice was sure a lot of fun!! :)
