    Guess I will make this the final set, and eclectic mix of Jets, airshow shots, antiques, and some unusual processing on some shots, thanks to all for looking and commenting, I have actually have hundreds of great pics, but tried for a vairety for everyone.

    First a nice young lady working the flight line early one morning, presented a nice backlight pose which I silhouetted,

    One of the radio navigators in the B17 speaking at a presentation, such great stories and achievements, had a whole panel of folks talking about their flights and missions, D200 and ISO 2000, 180 f2.8 lens at 2.8, BW felt right in this photo being in a hangar.

    and the final shot from this years show, a complete BW high key type silhouette:

    Really nice. Thanks for sharing...
     
  3. I love the F-86. That will always be the quintessential jet fighter in my mind.
    Beautiful lines with guns... no stand off rockets. A real dog fighter.

    Thanks Wade.

    Thanks Miriam, I thought that it turned out rather nice, and of course I can't remember everything I did on that image, because it was a lot! lol The backlight helped a lot.
