Hello,a spectacular and well composed contribution!He must enjoy what he is doing.All the best Otto.

Hello Ron

I really like this image. The intertwined smoke coming from the aircraft. Looks like an HDR treatment which worked out very well. Nice


Great timing and capture of this pilot working hard but I'm sure enjoying what he is doing. I like the composition and love the wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

An impressive capture Ron, those guys have nerves of steel. Good aperture to squeeze as much DOF as you could, most of the smoke is sharp, along with the plane. Nice use of thirds too, the red "X" marks the spot.

Great shot, excllent composition, beautiful smoke, this is a photo full of dynamics

Hello Ron,
I enjoy the drama of the moment with the plane tilted at just the right angle combining with the trail of smoke to good effect against a lovely sky,a sound composition gives lots of room for the `plane to move in to.
Best regards Les.

Hi Ronald,

We are in the same area regarding the people at work this week. You have the pilot doing acrobatics in the sky and mine is the crew towing the aircraft toward the tarmac. I like the effect of the smoke on the clouds. A difficult shot to take. Have a nice day.

Hi Ronald,
You are showing quite a dangerous task, piloting these aerobic planes!
He's doing a good and spectacular job in this show.
Quite a neat presentation with perfect timing.
