Nice shots. Compare with my FZ1000M2 from September 2021 (Brunswick, ME) on a very overcast and spotty day.

Much better weather following weekend at Portsmouth, NH:

Thanks! Yep, lighting is certainly key with these. My favorite locations have the crowd looking to the north, since the sun tends to be at your back then. I also prefer clear, sunny skies (a few clouds are fine, since sometimes they add some character to the pictures).

Edit - I forgot to mention that I've started to add some +EV when shooting into the sun (backlit planes). If the sky gets overexposed, I'm fine. I prefer the planes to be better exposed. The darker planes, like the Blues are more difficult to get right in those situations.
