About the Image(s)

This image was taken recently at the Cleveland Air Show. It's an airplane performance team. Adjustments include bringing out the shadows more in photoshop and a slight crop. Also applied a high pass filter to sharpen the image a bit. I wanted to keep a lot of the clouds since I found an interesting element of the photo.
f5.8, 1/2500, ISO 160

Great curves. The clouds add interest and context. Good post processing. Better if the spacing was equal, but that is what you had to work with.   Posted: 09/09/2023 12:57:20

Renee, what a GREAT capture! The curve of the jet streams are so graceful. You shutter speed was right on for stopping the action of the planes. I do think I like the depth of the blue sky in your original. I also think this image gives me the sense of the Yin Yang forces. I took the liberty of accentuating this concept a more by tiling the image just a bit.   Posted: 09/11/2023 09:39:48

What a great action shot with a lot of energy! I like what Terry did because it allows more room for the planes to fly into. Yes, I agree, the clouds add a great deal of interest to the shot.   Posted: 09/15/2023 01:40:13

Excellent action shot. The blue sky with clouds add interest to the image. I liked the blue sky in the original. The bottom trim is a little tight. Could have given a little more space for the bottom plane to move downward. Shutter speed was good for catching the action. Well done.   Posted: 09/18/2023 02:39:49

Nice capture at the right time. Sharp image. I think that you have lost some contrast during processing. I prefer the blue sky on the original. I like Terry's crop.   Posted: 09/27/2023 08:36:05

Renee, great shot. Air shows are such fun to shoot. The curving clouds add interest. I would like to see the red on the planes brighter (greater luminosity) and the rest of the planes darker to stand out better from the sky in the background.   Posted: 09/27/2023 18:13:26
