The only other one , which I tried to sharpen a little with LR
A little out of focus, but nice pics. The wart hog has to be my favorite military plane ever.
Too bad this isn't a little sharper. The composition is nice. I liked some of your other recent aviation photos.
I'll never forget the time I was driving a convertible in Homestead Florida and an A-10 took off from the airbase. We were right at the end of the runway but didn't know it. It flew right over the car at, I am guessing, a couple of hundred feet. Scared the beejeebus out of me.
Both are out of focus, and needs a contrast boost.
As the P51 mustang is mine Dunno what it is about those planes, they just look neat
bet its hard to get them sharp, Never tried to photograph anything moving...yet...
If this were my photo I would attempt to save it by doing some hardcore photoshop
I definitely like the 'composition', and I can imagine it's tough to get it nice and sharp when you're tracking a fast moving object like that.
To those who suggested PS, he allows edits of his work... so maybe you can help him out?
thank you for comments. I didn't realize how bad the focus was, I was at the extreme end of my 18-200, very gray sky and moving fairly quickly, only shoot a burst but all are OOF. Maybe I'll try and learn PS and see if I can improve it.
I'm into Aviation photography myself and can appreciate how hard it is to get those silly prop planes crisp, yet blur the propeller.
The only tip I can offer is to take a ton of photos in burst mode as they do the fly-by's and hope for the best. Spray and pray.
I hope to see more soon :mrgreen:
