Watched the Blue Angels perform at Randolph Air Force Base and thought I would share this pic.

The selective coloring makes for a very strong image (saying this before someone comes in the with "I don't usually like selective coloring, but in this case..."). Wish the antennae wasn't in the way in the middle. Image looks a little tilted to the right.

Very nice! The selective coloring really makes this picture. (external link)

Yep, I agree, I think that this would be a throw away shot if not for the selective coloring. I still think that the foreground is too busy, but you have to go with what you can. In a perfect world just 1 foot higher angle on the shot would have made all the difference.

But all in all I like it. Kinda makes me want to look over my shots again to see if I can find some hidden gem.
