Nice capture..kinda wish the image was horizontally flipped to make them fly out of the right side of the image.

The contrast is pretty flat, it needs blacker blacks I think.

A very well executed and difficult shot. I love the compossition here.

Even though they're machines of war, the image didn't say "wrath" for me. Certainly plenty of pride, though, and a moment well-caught. I think I'd just have called it "Pride". :) Hey, no points lost for that tho.

Good picture, good title.

lovely shot
10/16/2002 06:14:00 PM
You must be in California. This is a great shot. You can actually see the pilots!
10/16/2002 05:52:00 PM
good pic.

Nice composition and a great message it sends
10/16/2002 10:02:00 AM
I don't feel much of the pride, and none of the wrath. Sorry :

This is a very nicely composed photo... a very tough catch as well. I think some level adjustments on this one may help out a bit :) - setzler

Nice shot, but perhaps different lighting would have made the planes really pop. (Yeah I know, just have them come around again, right...) As it is, the blue planes almost fade into the sky. 7

The contrast is very poor, and I do not see how an air show display fits the challenge. Zeiss

Stunning. With formation flying as good as that, this is definitely a pride moment.

I love seeing the Blue Angels perform. When my ex was in the Air Force, I saw them often (at least 2xyear). I didn't think that they were doing air shows since 9/11. You got a good shot. I have lots of photos of them, but not one near as good as this. You can even see the pilots!! As far as the challenge goes, I find myself having more Pride when I see this than anything else. How can that be a sin? However, I'm giving you a 10 for great photography.

great photo, but i've been brainwashed to think this is defense.
10/14/2002 09:18:00 PM
Awesome picture!! I went to see them this last weekend but couldn't get an pics like this one. Nice!

i like the composition. I know it's sounds dumb but it's too blue. even the yellows looked blue. try adjusting the color balance and see how it improves. IMO anyway. good one.
10/14/2002 04:17:00 PM
Yay fleet week! ;) Great pic and interesting concept. good job
10/14/2002 03:04:00 PM
Interesting repetition of the planes. Nice capture of the moment. Very close to current events in our actuality. 6

It's apparent that you have a lack of respect for our armed forces...sad...these men are well trained and help to defend you against foreign threat and deserve your respect and should be proud. As far as wrath, I doubt that very many, if any of these gentlemen are wrathful in regards to what they do...it's their job!
This is a good photo but might be better suited to a different challenge in which you may not offend others!
10/14/2002 02:13:00 PM
The composition and focus on this are great. Blue Angels, right?. I almost think it needs a bit more contrast, though. Even though the blues are different, they kinda blend together, in my opinion. karmat

Nice photo, but the colors of the planes should be brighter. The Blue Angels have some of the brightest planes around, but that isn't evident.
10/14/2002 09:53:00 AM
Nice shot. I have photographed the Blue Angels many times, so I appreciate how hard it is to get such a nice shot when they are in such a tight formation. They move too fast.
10/14/2002 06:23:00 AM
Very nice shot. It definitely manages to convey both pride and wrath to me. lhall

Fun shot, good capture. They are beautiful. Wow. Good going. Justine

For the purpose of this challenge, this is crap. Lacks imagination. Let's take a picture of some fighter planes and make a statement. Grow up.
