This was my first time shooting an air show and I thought they came out fairly good. What do you all think?

Nice stuff! Blue skies, too. You probably don't know how lucky you were! ;)

Thanks. I was at North Avenue Beach right in front of Castaways. It's a great spot because it is basically the center point of the show.

Very nice pictures.I was disappointed by this year's lack of military planes but it was still a good show. Did you take those with the 70-300mm or the 70 to 200?

They were taken with my 70-200 2.8 w/the 1.4 extender. This was my first time out with the combo and I am really happy with how it performed.

Yeah, they were in Seattle for the Seafair week, and it was cloudy. *envious of your blue skies*

Nice. I'm also thinking about buying the 1.4 extender for my 70 -200. What brand do you have?

It's the canon 1.4 III. I know it is pricey compared to some of the competition, but it has not disappointed so far.
