Wow, thats one of the better shots I,ve seen of the Blue Angels ( or any other group) in formation. Really nice detail, and almost perfect symmetry. Top notch air show photo. No margin for error on part of the camera operator either, and you caught it just right.

What is the tech info on this shot?

Lin, that is definitely the best air show picture I've seen. The colors, sharpness and formation are really great. You caught a great one!!

Hi Guys,
Sorry, I should have put the tech-info in the post.

I took the photo at the Loveland, Colorado air show yesterday. I used the Canon EOS-1D with Canon 100-400L IS lens at ISO 200 - F10.4 - 1/320th AI Servo burst of about 10 frames panning.

I'll be putting up a page from the air show and a link later next week when I sort throught them. It wasn't a great day for shooting - extremely hot and with lots of overcast and clouds - not a lot of blue skys and the Blue Angels were put on last, around 3:15 pm. Shooting for the propeller driven planes was much better earlier in the morning before the heat polution, but we don't get them here too often, so you take what you can get!

Best regards,

Lin

Is that Mattel stamped on the wings?
That has to be the best shot of any planes I have ever seen Lin, and Blue Angels is just icing on the cake.

Hi Ron, Tom,
If you take enough shots - some of them will work :-)

Tom,
They sell these little plastic Blue Angel models at the airshow - it's amazing what a little superglue and strings will do! HA!

Best regards,

Lin

Lin, that shot is stunning. Outstanding job! I will agree with the comments above, without hesitation, that is one of the best airshow shots I've ever seen.

Aside from the clarity and vivid colors, you nailed the movement and the perception of just how close those planes appear to be. They are actually very close, but to the spectator, they look even closer, which is chilling in your shot.
