Hi Dave.
Really nice shots, nicely done on the cross shot and the static shots are in beautiful light.

Cheers, Graham.

I really like the second shot. Out of curiosity, is it possible to freeze both planes when crossing at any shutter speed?

Is this airshow for general public? What time they do it every year.

Thanks

thank for the kind words

YEs I was in the show on Alliance show on Sun! when the Tbirds was out I went outside to photograph that have much better lighting from the west wide of the runway.

As for the show they usually have it in Oct time frame every year.. and yes! open to public

I don;t think you can get both sharp shots unless they are very close to each other .. since at that focal length... the depth of field may not accomodate such variations

HI Scott

Quite a show isn;t it?? Just that by the time Tbirds is up! the lightning was just horrible! I had to go out of the Airshow and photograph them outside to get good light,
