Duxford Airshow G9 + 100-400
26

Not had the G9 for Long and only got the lens the day before the airshow so didn't have any time to practice.

I tried to follow the advice given to me by forum member evetsf so i want to say thanks to him/her.

Camera and lens were great but i need a lot more practice.

I am still rubbish at editing photos.

I like the P47/P51 , have you considered chopping off the bottom

Most of them are great! I especially like the ones where you have reduced the SS so that blades show some kind of movement. Well done!

Having been up-close-and-personal with a couple of B17's it always amazed me how these critters could leave the UK, fly for hours, get shot up and often return on one sputtering engine.

All pulleys and cable.

Beautiful shots...Love the WWII era planes.

Did have a question tho'...whats up with shot 7 (yellow bi-plane)...it appears there's a ghost skeletal plane behind it?  Any idea what happened?

Re: Duxford Airshow G9 + 100-400

Nice work sir! Especially with no practice time beforehand. Nothing to be ashamed of here.

A couple of photos might have benefitted from a bit shorter focal length to avoid cutting off part of the plane (like that last Mustang), but one could equally argue that the framing was intentional.

You'll only get better with more experience under your belt.

Nice.

I used to live up the road from Duxford and in the week or two before the show used to enjoy sitting in the garden watching the Spitfires and so on practice their routines!

That looks like a great way to spend a day.  Thanks for sharing your images.  I cant wait to be able to get back out for our local Airshows.

I take photos, not particularly good photos, mostly abstract photos. Yeah abstract is what I would call them, you might call them blurry.
