Maybe - I was with my wife (she's Asian, short, with long black hair). I had on white shorts and a dark coat. Were you the one that rented a lens from CC?

Yup that was me with my little brother!

Awesome shot Daniel of the F18 Going Vertical.

Thanks. I have a feeling thats going to be the best shot of the day. Didn't have to do much correction (-0.1 on brightness and a little sharpen), and just a crop the extra sky off the sides.

Have to find some time to go through the rest, as I'm off to the Smoky Mountains NP this weekend....

Don't know about you, but I'm used to it. Never got called Daniel at school - as in NZ equiv of elementary - 2 Daniels in a class of 25. Middle School - 3 in a class size of about 28. Continued along the same lines in the work force.

OK, it didn't hit me until later in the morning that that was you. The coffee took a while to kick in that day!

Great stuff guys! Timeaster those pics look spot on! The color is amazing.

I have shot the airshow before and my pics looked a lot like the OP's photos. There is a bunch of blue drowning out the color and the planes dont' look crisp. Whats the key to crisp color and sharp images??

For the OP, no insult to your pics, they are better than what i can do! You did a great job.

Use a properly adjusted circular polarizer perhaps? Just a guess! Plus good post processing!

As with any other type of photography .. The Quality Of The Light

Unfortunately, 99.9% of the folks attending an airshow have no control over their location but the .1% who do are the ones who set the benchmark. It's nearly impossible (and really frustrating) to compare efforts shot from the "cheap seats" with those done by Media or other pros who are allowed to position themselves in optimal locations around the field.

Four ways to deal with shooting up-sun into a "high sky":
1) Shoot as tight as humanly possible to eliminate the surrounding sky and concentrate on close up details.
2) Intentionally create "High Key" or "High Contrast" images and go for shapes and forms rather than coffee table book quality.
3) Put the camera down and enjoy the show.
4) Do some pre-show research via Google Maps and an Ephemeris to see where the sun will be relative to the crowd line and determine if it's really worth the hassle to go at all if it's not at least somewhat photo friendly.

Despite how much I love to shoot aviation, there are times of day and certain locations where I know it just won't be worth picking up the camera.

CPLs typically don't work well in airshow situations because as you pan accross the flight line, your angle off the sun constantly changes and so will your polarizing effect. In this case a CPL just robs you of light.

Thanks! For every decent photo I had at least 10 that were washed out, out of focus, or partially cut off. I even had a couple of pics of nothing but blue sky. I didn't use any filters. For the photos that look like they have potential, I just try to adjust levels to maximize my histogram, sometimes just a bump up of the black level will help that washed out look. I also tried to keep my exposures far to the right as much as possible. The rest is just luck.
