Took this last year at Sunderland Airshow, this thing had crap camouflage! any enemy aircraft could spot this a mile off!......great for air displays though. I chose this one as the pilot can be seen giving a wave :)

Adjusted levels, cloned out dirt on the sensor, resized for TL. Hope you like it

Obviously not camouflage unless it is parked in Las Vagas. :)
A sharp and colorful in flight image and a worthy contribution to the Friday theme.

Lovely aerial shot with amazing color, light and contrast to the blue sky brian!

Good sharpness and well clarity with good control on exposure.

The POV and DOF are well done, Good addition to the Friday theme... TFS

Lousy way to camouflage a plane indeed but it certainly is showy and photogenic just the same ! A fine capture , i like what i see Brian , good one for the theme , have a nice weekend ,

Wow! I can hear him saying. . ."hi Steve!" Awesome capture of this airplane. I agree about the colors but it's great color combination. Good dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Bri,
An attractive aircraft with so many eye catching colors. Of course, this plane can be detected from quite a distance! A sharp image against a nice blue sky.
Quite clean and nicely framed.

Hi Brian,
The Hawker Hunter was my favourite jet when I was a boy.
It is still a very elegant looking aircraft today, certainly in this livery.
Nice sharp and well exposed capture, well done.

Hi Brian.

Such stunning livery colours to this craft, reminds me of the zoom lollies we had as a kid. Love the detail shown, his cockpit is open, how weird is that, and he's not looking where he's going too lol tfs

stv ;o))

This is an amazing closeup capture from a colorful aircraft with wonderful details and contrast against a blue sky, Brian!

The picture is razor-sharp and POV is excellent.
Light and exposure are well handled.
A wonderful entry to Friday's theme!

Have a nice weekend.


Hi Brian, this is definitely colourful and very sharp. Can even see the points on the stars.Nice catch of a 'look ma no hands' moment. Fiona
