    I really like 2 and 3 (first one seems a little harsh on the lighting) they are so perfect almost seem like the jet isnt supposed to be there but thats a good thing. Great capture and so sharp

    Where exactly do you sign up for a job like this? Those are beautiful!

    I actually like #2 the least - that river (?) behind the jet makes the plane blend in with the terrain, while on the other 2 photos the silhouette of a fighter is preserved and reads so well against the background. Superb photos!

    Some fantastic work here...if anything, I'd say the first one is the best of the three. The third one benefits to having an off-centre crop as the aircraft seems to have room to 'fly' to the left of it, whereas the middle one just seems mis-cropped. First one for sure, nice.
