Nice framing for this capture. It's not easy to keep up with these guys flying around. Good job.

This is ok. I know the planes are moving and you've stopped the motion per the challenge, but something just seems kind of static about this. Nothing personal...it's a good capture overall. I would like to see a little more space at the bottom but it's not critical. Other than that it's sharp and well exposed. Hope it does well for you. Good luck.

Great shot! I'd frame this a bit wider though.

Your crop seems a little bit off center. But good picture.

okay, one jet would have been impressive - four strikes me as greedy! no, this is a very lovely aeronautic picture; the formation suits the framing very well, and would make a lovely poster. the sky is nice, though a bit flat, and the only real slight criticism is that the colours of the planes feel a bit too bold and contrasty... that aside, i think this is a great picture, pin sharp and visually super. 9.
