This is very sharp. I struggle getting good focus on moving subjects, so I'm really impressed. I like the color of the sky, so that adjustment works for this shot.   Posted: 11/02/2019 16:34:16

Wonderful shot! Sky adjustment makes the jets stand out. Nicely done.   Posted: 11/02/2019 17:41:31

Hung, I feel that you got a great capture of moving objects. To me the jets are very sharp, and how lucky you were to have those clouds for a great composition.   Posted: 11/02/2019 21:08:01

This is a dramatic image looking as if you are flying close by and as you say participating......that's very close flying. I would raise the question about whether to show so much jet-stream so as to loose relative space in front of the jets, so I would suggest placing them more centrally or use more negative space in front if you have some prior to cropping. I would also try a horizontal flip.   Posted: 11/10/2019 22:47:33

Nice capture, Hung. I think Piers' comment about the leading space should be larger than the trailing space is valid. I also think that the frame is a little too heavy and distracts a little from the image. One day I'll get to an air show and try and capture these machines in flight!   Posted: 11/15/2019 17:57:22
