8th place
Bournemouth Air Show 2015. Final flying season for a great and spectacular aircraft. The display line was over the ocean; as she roared in for the final pass she flashed through a weak sunbeam and a reflection from the silver sea below.

Taken: Sunday, 23rd August, 2015
Focal length: 300 mm
Shutter speed: 1/2000 sec
Aperture: F5.6
ISO: 320
Notes: Fast shutter speed for a fast jet! Plenty of light, so I was happy to use shutter priority. It's a south facing coast, hence I dialled in plenty of compensation against the back lighting. Processed only in Lightroom and this JPEG is converted directly from the ORF raw file. The 300mm focal length gives a similar angle of view to a 600mm lens on a 35mm film camera.
