Here are a few shots from Media Day at the Indianapolis Airshow. This show is always a tough shoot due to the backlighting. C&C appreciated.

Awesome series. Love #2.

Great capture on #2. My only CC are of the airborne shots.......all look like the sky can be brought back pretty easily with the color you have, they look a little over-exposed. A couple of minor adjustments in shadow/highlight would fix them right up. I do agree though, too bright of a background is tough to shoot.......but overcast is by far the hardest. Give or take either way.....I don't mind overcast any more though, since there is a high chance for lots of humidity when the jets take the air. :)

Yep, I do need to work on the sky a bit more on some of these....these were just quick and dirty PP in Lightroom. I did intentionally overexpose a bit to ensure I captured detail in the undersides and shadows of the aircraft. It's always tough in backlit situations to balance detail in the aircraft without blowing out the sky.

Will have some more from the show today to post here in a bit.
