Following on from my picture from yesterday, this is another photograph of the "Breitling Wingwalkers" display at Scotland's National Airshow on Saturday afternoon, the two young ladies carrying out various acrobatics on the top wings of these biplanes while the pilots carry out aerobatic manoeuvres with these 60 year old aeroplanes.
The Breitling Wingwalkers for me were probably the highlight of the whole airshow. Very well worth seeing if they ever come to your area! You can read more about them in my note on my last picture.
And you can see a larger version of this picture on "beta" TE here.

now this is dynamic to say the least,imaginatively composed with excellent use being made of the vertical corners it`s a cracking shot.
As usual it`s pin sharp and perfectly exposed,they don`t get much better than this,or maybe you know better....
Warm regards Les.

Hi John, this is also wonderfully composed, I like it with the smoke along diagonal. brave women. Again fantastic sharpness. You had very short ti me,1/2500, so even the propeller is well seen. superb
Have a nice day (tomorrow)

Une deuxième très belle réussite avec une très bonne composition "dans la diagonale".

Bonjour John, as we say in France!
The general diagonal composition reinforces the feeling of dynamism, movement yet given by the scene itself and also the white smoke coming from the planes. Good idea to have orange painted aircraft, they are eye catching against the sky.
have a lovely day

decisamente molto più bella questa diagonale del precedente scatto.
Perfettamente inquadrata e con una forte dinamicità dovuta ai due aerei che si stanno innalzando nel cielo.
Uno show fantastico, ripreso con maestria.

I am again fascinated of these two girls on the airplanes, without fright.
John, one advice, F11 and and 250 seconds would the screws perfect do turning.
I like your diagonal composition with the smoke wonderful.
Very well done, TFS.

I just have to compare this to the previous one. Now there's some separation between the planes making this more of a stylish composition than thrilling moment of the first one. Diagonal composition is quite efficient.

As the previous one.. beautifully captured image. I really love the orange colour. Compare with the previous one, it's slightly dark, the background colour is better in my opinion, and I prefer this one's arrangement of the two planes, but the previous one shows the wingwalkers better... it's nice that you have both to show us.
BTW, thank you for the critique for the clock, I've uploaded the whole clock for you to have a look.

Another cracking shot!
The aeroplanes are colourful and interesting, with their smoke tail on a perfect diagonal across the blue sky.
The planes look to have been titivated specially for the occasion, like two women on stage, and there are two, fearless women on stage, too!
Excellent sharpness for a difficult, moving subject.
My warm regards,

This is a terrific photo, perfectly composed and perfectly exposed. This show must have been great fun and those women dancing on the wings are probably better protected than the average Asian construction worker.

well, I just had to come back to your airplane series at the airshow.
these are very inspirational John.
I hope I come away with something nearly as good as these ones.
love the way you angled the planes upward. I take it thats intentional? I'll have to keep that in mind.
I also notice you have a 100-400 lens, was that suffice? I have a 60-250mm F4...Its a high quality Pentax Lens, but the zoom range may be too short.
Wonderful photo John, compo, colors, subject matter and light...i'll be trying my best this weekend.
Wish me luck!

Well, they must be mad. But I like the nice contrast in tone between the orange aeroplanes and the blue of the sky - which just maybe you could emphasize a gnat's. That's not my normal thing, as usually I'm fighting a rearguard action against too much saturation in images on this site. Very graphic and scary.

Very good frame quality of the scene with an interesting diagonal of planes
A very good decisive moment
