Greetings from the Critique Club!

Very eye catching photo! During voting I gave this a 7. A little of the left side could be cut off, placing the planes in more of a rule of thirds positioning. The red planes against the blue sky is very nice! The only thing I didn't like about this picture is the smoke trails being a darker grey colour. The only way I see to improve this image would be to have turned the smoke trails a more white colour. I see it's your second highest rated photo, congratulations!

It's hard to tell exactly what you did but the saturation levels look a little strange and it could be due to burning. For me you could have pulled way way back on the post processing and I would have been fine with the shot.

Wow! Great capture, and the curve starting in the upper left just does a perfect job of leading the eye to the ultimate target. 9

I love airshows, nice capture. Just a tad heavy on the blue saturation.

Looks like one of those motivational posters. Nice shot. That being said, the processing of the colors has introduced some noise in the sky to my eye.

You did this so well. I found it very hard to shoot planes like this. Also your color is very nice.
