*Critique Club*

You have produced a clean and very crisp image. The colors are fantastic, and the details are very clear. I think the image would have more imoact with a different crop - to show more of the contrails and leave more negative space in the frame. Just a thought. Well captured though, and beautifully presented.

I love the Blue Angels! I would have liked to see more of the smoke trails. This feels too closely cropped in for my likes.

Nice framing. You were able to keep all jets in the picture which is not easy at this speed. I also like the color. Good job.

Sharp image. Motion certainly stopped. The smoke trails lend to leading lines of a sort, and the formation pattern is good. Fun to look at image, should do ok for you. Good luck.

ha! i wonder if this was taken at the same display as the other one? it's effectively dramatic, but to me the aircraft feel a little cramped within the frame; i think a bit more sky would be nice. certainly fits the challenge, and is nice and sharp. it just lacks a certain something... 6.
