Hi Simon.
Beatiful series, stunning clarity, really like the wocka wocka with the exhaust haze!

Cheers, Graham.

+100!!
How the heck do you get such clarity?

I was going to post more to this great thread but honestly I'm put off  :'(  I need to try harder  ;D

@Zim absolutely do post, the great thing about this forum is its worldwide so you get to see things that I would not normally with regional forums.

As for the clarity: Light, Opportunity, Practice and Gear in that order. I've been taking plane photos on and off since I was 8-years old. I spend hours in the hills trying to get shots of operational planes, which are usually hugging the valley bottoms in deep shadows, so I've got pretty good at post processing. I have disks full of rubbish shots! Sometimes however you do get a shot that just works, (re)edited this one last night

Thanks Click and +1 on your comment on Simon's shot :)

I'll look forward to seeing the Rhinos in the alps Simon :D  I agree with what you say about lighting, opportunity etc.  The one good thing about dull light is that it's good for afterburner shots.
