[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went to the Travis Air Show today looking for Aircraft Art. I love the shape of this jet with the aerodynamic curves and lines. I am not sure which jet this is so I may need help from Eleu.....

I am realizing that I prefer the way the world looks through a telephoto lens. Even my panoramic shots are stitched using this same focal length.

Hello Roger. Very sharp composition of the aircraft. It is clearly a beauty and the aerodynamic curves are necessary but at the same time look pretty good. Exposure, clarity and central placement looks good. Thanks for sharing.

High Roger
A very intimidating machine of war. Beautifully sharp and symmetrical image that increases the beauty of the plane. The plain sky helps also.

Bom dia Roger,
You show two things here, that when a photo is of high quality can disregard any existing rule or convention among photographers, 1 - which recommends "off center" and 2 - that says you should not cut off part of the subject.
You're always proving that innovation is good and recommended.
Have a nice Sunday.

I like your tight cropping of this F-22 Raptor, I do like those smooth lines and the overall shape of the airplane. They look so beautiful but I'm sure very deadly. Details are very sharp. Well done, tfs.

Hi Roger, Nice shot of this air craft with stunned sharpness and details. Tight crop enhances its powerful nature. Thank for sharing

Hi Roger,
Perfect symmetric shot.

Hello Roger,
For me the style is rather similar to your series on the Ferrari and very pleasing. I hope you also took a photo of the whole of the aircraft. Best wishes.
