Hello everyone. I'm back again for a about 2 months now.
Just returned from an Itallian holiday. Lecco, on the East arm of Lake Como is not the most popular tourist destination around the lake, but though a work-a-day town, is still a very charming place, and every year the town puts on a festival with a huge range of free attractions. This is the first of a short series from the air show last Saturday.

Perfect timing, the composition of them three and the sharpness are exquisite …

Well they have presented you with the perfect opportunity for a diagonal composition - and the opportunity to show that the rule about things not leaving the frame is easily broken when the image demonstrates the path to that position....compositionally spot on....you've caught them really well - did you have any problems tracking for focus?
We are off soonish so maybe catch up later in August - I'm trying to arrange for Brendan Head to come up from London.

A very dynamic shot with diagonal smoke trails. I like the way how the wings are on different angles.
This also fits my mood after seeing one air show in yesterday.

A beautiful composition. Maybe you could increase saturation of colors and sharpness ( I propose these modifications in a workshop). Cheer !

You have caught a wonderful sense of speed and motion, Richard. This has the feel of a world war two movie. The PoV feels like it is in a plane too. regards kevin
