Challenge: Best of 2012 (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
Location: Oshkosh, WI
Date: Jul 27, 2012
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/2000
Date Uploaded: Jan 15, 2013

This was taken at Airventure 2012 during the afternoon airshow. The airshow takes place over the main (North-South) runway, and the viewing area is to the west. The viewing distance is pleasantly short. The 400/5.6 provided the perfect focal length. A little bump of the ISO to 200 allowed the shutter speed to stay high, a necessity when tracking these fast jets with a long lens, hand-held.
The timing of the show, after 3PM, puts the sun somewhat behind the viewer, a perfect angle.
