Good capture. The Jets look like drawings.

Great action shot. Looked at this with a 4x magnifier and didn't see pixellation. 10

Would have liked to see more of the smoke in the U turn. You could also easily make it much better by cropping the empty space on the right side away... Anyway, good shot

Nicely seen and taken IMO looks a little oversharpened to me but good all the same.

These fighter pilots and their aircraft are very graceful when in flight. This is another example of how great they are. The graceful flight pattern is shown by the smoke of the burning JP fuel. Great capture and well cropped. I gave it a 7.

Gorgeous, great capture.

Good title. It's truly graceful and powerful. Seems oversharpened though, as the jets don't look very natural.

Now this is a great shot. the proportion od the thunderbirds to the swir of the white fume is well balance by the blue sky. I gave u a 7

Nice shot, very graceful image! I like how the pattern they're flying and where they're composed makes it look like they're bouncing off the top of the image frame.

Technically, some of the smoke appears to be overexposed to the point where there is considerable detail loss. Compositionally, I feel there is just a bit too much negative space on the right side of the shot...(the planes are practically centered in the image).

I hope this helps,

Lovely shot. I would have liked it even more if the top of the loop of smoke were in frame though.
