[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken a couple of weeks ago at the Sunderland Airshow - Two US WWII planes fly past. This was a bit of a challenge and I am pleased it came out - The Catalina sea plane is a slow moving aircraft where the P51 Mustang is a fighter, with the shutter speed slowed down to 1/200 for the movement of the props and ISO set to 200 I had to try and pan with the aircraft speed - not easy when the Mustang was traveling twice the speed of the Catalina but I think i managed it. What do you think?

Adjusted levels, saturation and contrast in CS5 sharpened and resized for TL.

A more closer shot might work better IMHO, Brian!
The light and exposure are well handled and colors are original.
The contrast against the blue sky is well kept.
Nice work!

Kind regards,

You did a wonderful job in capturing those two airplanes! And with the sun shinning? In air shows I watch in wonder when a flight of F-15s and WWII fighters flying in formation make their pass all maintaining the same speed! Great angle and dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.

Hello Brian,

It's a nice snapshot looking at two different types of aircrafts. Light sky and light painting on the planes is looking interesting. Nice placement in frame. A beautiful shot, well done. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,
