Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Very nice framing / compositions!!
#30 A400 with full disks is an absolute winner for me...

It appears though as if you worked with the shadow highlight filter a bit to much, by which you removed the freshness / sparkle in some of the pictures. You may want to increase contrast in certain areas with the curve. (#1,4,6,7,10, ...) You put a lot of effort in these pictures and it pays off!! Excellent.

Your skills to capture rotorblur is quite amazing. Well done!

Hi,

Most of the time Canon 500mm prime with TCs x1,4 or x2. Some time 100-400mm.

Yeah I know, I know. It is hard to make all these blured propellers and helicopters rotors, not to mention all this fancy vapours.

You COULD limit the contrast to have a more natural look/colors...(it's just an advise from somebody with 30+ years of photograph experience :D )
For the rest, NO comment! :wink:
