    Warbirds Airshow, Zwartkop AFB South Africa

    Hi

    Haven't posted in a long time. This weekend I went to our local air show and for the first time I had a half decent camera. Here are a couple of the best ones I took. Please let me know what you think. I've always been an aircraft enthusiast but this was my first attempt at air show photography.

    Hi Paul,

    These are all good quality (sharp and well exposed) shots, well done.

    I have one suggestion;
    Sally (the P51) is leaving the frame - I'd consider expanding the canvas and cloning in some more sky if necessary

    Cheers (and welcome back),

    Paul, I really like the Puma chopper with the flairs. The picture is excellant. They all look good but that one just stands out.

    They are all good but Into the sun is impressive . I'd have framed it somewhat wider on the left, through.

    Hi Paul

    Loved the helicopter flares - superb. I thought 'Into the sun' fine as is. All shots are great - your timing is, as they say, "awesome".

    Cheers

    Lovely shots. All of them are them are winners but I agree with Dave about the Mustang.
