I like your artistic treatment of the subject and think it works well as it is. I of course did play with it a bit. I flipped it counterclockwise, added more space in front of and to the right of the planes and used a curves adjustment to increase the contrast.   Posted: 11/12/2023 20:47:51

Wow, Kurtis, what a great shot, your timing was perfect!! I do like seeing these planes flying counterclockwise with additional space ahead because for me it creates more drama in the image. Wonderful picture!   Posted: 11/19/2023 09:13:29

Kurt you got a nice shot. I wish you could give your image a better sense of speed. Art tried to do that, but by working on the original file you can expand and improve your interesting image.   Posted: 11/22/2023 01:58:57

Kurt I love your painterly look, makes for a more interesting photo of a great formation of the planes. Well done.
