Absolutely great shot !!

IU used to live on the perimeter of West Malling Airfied where the "Warbirds" show was in the 90's before they closed it, and so I know hard hard it is capture this quality of flying image.

I've taken the liberty of doing a workshop as I though it would look even better a little crisper and with less noise. It's not massivelt different, but see what you think.

Probably the best formation picture I have seen on Trekk Lense. f.22 at 1/500 I wonder what that would have done since you clearly stopped the props maybe you could have gotten some sharper images. That is a just wild guess of a suggestion.

Its a great capture and I know that telephoto compression is a factor but still those P51's are so dammed close.Photographically well exposed and composed and nice and sharp.

Hi Joar,

Very interesting, Where did you seat to take this one?! It looks like you may be saet in another airplan. Excellent.


Superb shot!
I might add some USM, but then again too much possible grain?

I love the way they almost overlap.
When you look at it, first impression you get is ... which one is in front ?

Wonderful crop.
