The first one through the loop of smoke is excellent timing and framing.

Without needing too many details, was there anything in general you did when you became 'more creative' with your post processing? Or did you just play with each one until it 'looked right'

In Lightroom, I used lots of clarity & contrast, but maxing those out wasn't enough, so I added a graduated filter with more clarity & contrast, plus some dehaze.  I tweaked the color temp to be more yellow/orangish, which I intended to give an old, aged feel to the image.  I added a little extra red, to make the plane stand out as well.

As an example, this was one image, straight out of the camera.  As it was, the plane's smoke trails were mostly lost, blending in with the clouds in the background.

Hi Chasinglight.
A great series of shots, really nice shot of the Vampire or Vixen. Great to see the Harrier, I stood on Southampton water during the "wings on the water" show and the Harrier did its bit right in front of me. Me, well I got grit / stone blasted, but it was worth it.
Really like the last shot of the tow start!  :o :)

Cheers, Graham.
