If you observe photo #8 the LockheedHercules flying away from the camera you can see the light was against you and looks like it was shot with the sun nearly overhead, the best time for aviation photography is don't do it between 10am-2pm and get the sun behind if possible plus fill the viewfinder with as much aircraft as you can so the crop with PP is not too severe. Hope this helps.

Thanks Wirraway, but I had to deal with what the conditions were at the time the air show was held.

Jones Beach faces due South, show ran from 10 AM to 3 PM, sun at 1:00-2:00 with you facing South.

Most DSLR users in my vicinity on the boardwalk were not even taking pics,
( optical view finder issue I am sure ). Three stopped by and observed me using my tripod as a 'camera turret'.

I showed several people nearby, those viewing the show near us, the pilots in the jets on my review screen and each said 'Wow!! What camera is that?"

It was a great deal of fun.

Thanks for your advice. I hope to go to an air ballon show later on this summer.
