About the Image(s)

San Francisco Fleet Week festivities and US Navy Blue Angels airshows is held on Oct. every year. It was sopped couple years, because COVID 19 pandemic, but it start again in October of this year. I used camera Sony 7RII, 70-200mm lens set at f/5.6. 1/1600 sec. I just did a minor adjustment in Camera Raw/PS and cropping.

Nice image Tony. I note that you have space on the right in the original image. So whilst you have cropped the peaks, some more space on the right would have added to the direction of movement of the jets whilst preserving the plumes from each aircraft. Perhaps a little more space at the bottom would also balance the image.   Posted: 11/13/2021 01:11:52

You caught the planes in the perfect position, could not be any better. The image is nice and sharp, even when cropped in. I like your crop and would change a thing. This is the kind of an image that could go on a calendar.   Posted: 11/13/2021 17:17:39

Very nice capture of the Blue Angels Tony. Leading lines from cables and plumes from many directions, very sharp image, beautiful sky. I wuold have cropped a bit different but not important.   Posted: 11/19/2021 15:42:36

Very nice Tony. I am captivated by the lines of the bridge, the contrails, and the implied lines of fright. In addition the image is remarkably sharp and crisp. I agree that a bit more room on the right side would add to the image.   Posted: 11/24/2021 17:57:58

Yike! Close call with the bridge! I am amazed that all is so sharp even at 1/1600 of a second. Fantastic journalism shot! I am pleased with the image as presented. Having the action where it is gives me the feeling of great speed.   Posted: 11/25/2021 20:00:04
