[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
One of the displays at this years Sunderland airshow - the Breitling Wing Walkers.

As I took this shot I had the time value of the shutter speed set low to give me some movement n the propeller, whilst panning with the foreground plane took a shot just as they crossed close which has made the BG aircraft out of focus, It was sheer luck which one to pick for the foreground.

PP Work - in CS5, enhanced shaddow and highlight to bring out the detail and colours, sharpened and resized for TL.

Hope you like it

Wow! Awesome capture! I think wing walkers are ban in the U.S. I've been to a lot of air show but never see a wing walker. Great timing to get those two planes in the picture and you made the right decision on which to focus on. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Brian...excellent capture...nice timing and composition.


Amazing shot with perfect moment you have captured in here, dear Brian!

Great contrasts and well kept clarity with wonderful exposure on these aircrafts in-action.
The sharpness and POV are excellent.
Good work!

Thanks and regards,

A very creative composition using the adequate PP work.
