[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken last week at the great North Run the Red Arrows were performing over South Shields which meant a large part of Northumberland and Tyneside got to see them too. I particularly liked this one as they were coming in with the smoke trails curling in the jet stream.

PP work - cropped in and enhanced brightness/contrast resized for TL.

Reposted with the hue taken out of the sky - marked improvement.

Hope you like it

Hi Brian!
very nice capture! great composition with lovely colors...

Yeah, the color on this one is way better! Great job to repost Bri.
I was struck by the original though, how sharp you managed to get the planes - great job on that. I love the composition and the smoke trails .. especially the curly one on the far right.
Great shot Bri.

That's a heck of a shot, Brian.
Great stop action, superb composition, excellent sharpness. I like the way the smoke trails curve in contrast to the sharp lines and angles of the planes themselves. That's a cool photograph! Many thanks and kindest wishes,

Hello Brian,

Focus is spot on and a great moment to take this picture.

Hi Brian,
I can't see that these arrows/plains are red ! ;-)
The smokey trails are super. Not good for the environment, but great for photography and mankind. Very good compo and light.

This just looks perfect in my view Brian , nice capture of the smoking trails with the jets well shown and contrasting well against the sky here and they are perfectly aligned and spaced out in a diagonal and also placed in the frame splendidly , an excellent composition , i like this ,

Bonjour Brian.
Très bon point de vue de cette fameuse patrouille rouge.
L’angle de la prise de vue est parfait et donne un bon mouvement.
Bonne journée.
