The blues fly over Pensacola Beach every year and every year I am there. However, this year I had a purpose a bit beyond entertainment, I wanted to photograph the Blues for the first time and here is one of my favorite shots I went home with.

I missed it this year. Didn't want to battle the crowds, but I will see it in November I think. Sometime this winter they have another show, and I will be there for that one, but this is terrific!

Nice capture of a moment, but the busy foreground pulls attention away from the Blue Angels.

Too much clutter at the bottom. Nice diagnal with the formation and water tower. Crop the boats and it may be OK.

Try cropping out the left side of the photo (the whole building on the left) so that the water tower is more on the left and the Blue Angels more centered.

Having lived in Pensacola for a couple years I can appreciate your photo. I have seen the Blues fly on multiple occassions. Nice photo and love the colors.

Nice capture! A little cluttered at the bottom but this doesn't detract from the main subject. 8
