Usually I start off by telling what is wrong with the photo but there is very little here. So I will start by telling you what I think would have made this photo better.

The placement of the subjects is good but I would prefer that you give a little more room above the top plane the cropping is just a tad to tight. The smoke does a great job of leading you eyes good use of it. The red and white work well with the clear sky.

I believe that it would help to see a little more of the planes as well. Maybe just wait a second till they turned more. Over all this is a technically good photo I would say well above average.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions for me thanks for your time.

EXCELLENT composition for this aerial flyer shot. I rated another one earlier in this challenge, but I am rating this one much higher. Well done.

Great capture - love the trails. Could be independent in many ways including the right to not release smoke. Not serious comment - not independent due to being together - looking for at least top ten here.

Very nice capture. The sky is a beautiful blue and the focus is excellent. The planes are well positioned in the picture. I feel as if they will fly out of the computer screen at me. 10

Nice shot. Crop seems a little tight - the top plane doens't have a lot of room. It's great that the subjects are coming inot the frame - creates lots of visual interest. Good job with te color of the sky - this is really quite nice.
