[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multirole jet fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,400 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are still being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation, which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with Martin Marietta.

Olá Eleu,
I really like this picture panning which gives it a fast pace and aggressive as the war plane.
Good colors and contrast and very reasonable sharpness.

Hi Eleu...beautiful shot..I am still trying to figure out how you get these shots so sharp. Your panning is perfect..nice work.

Hi Eleu,
Super shot of the F16 with its afterburner on, great sharpness and well positioned in the frame

Hello Eleu , as good a capture of this F-16 as the other first two of your afterburner series , the effect is really just as good. I also believe you have positoned it correctly in the frame .
I see a bit of noise in this one as well so i have removed it from the image in a WS if only to verify what gain in clarity can be earned .
Tfs your aviation photography my friend no-one can claim as many good quality images than you ,
Greetings ,

Hi Eleu
Wonderful capture of this F 16 shot with 5.6 aperture yet get good details and spot on focus.
Have a Nice Day!
