Indeed. That is one superb photo, Mike. Well done!

Thank you both! I'm hoping to set this SNJ up the other way someday to try and get the mountain range more reflected along the side

@Pagman: Thanks for the images!

@Leftcoast_Mike: yes, Axalp is quite an experience. Even after all those years I still get goosebumps when you feel the trembling ground beneath your feet and you hear the roaring thunder which is echoed and strengthened by the surrounding mountains. The flypasts are also impressive as the Hornets and Tigers pass often in front of you through the narrow valley with speeds exceeding 700 km/h or more - there's little time left to press the shutter button ;) I remember a special flypast 3 years ago. The official display showing the abilities of the Hornet was finished with a horizontal high-speed pass - followed by an unrestricted climb.... The Hornet went literally vertical with glowing afterburners and 30 seconds later you could only see the contrails and hear the roar - 30'000 feet in a bit more than 30 seconds. That was just insane.

Humid air creates quite interesting effects.

Trying to imitate nustyR's style - but my longest lens (300mm) is a bit too short to get similarly impressive results :( Since I'm a student I can't afford bigger lenses, but I guess I'm not the only one who's dreaming of a 500mm lens or something like that:)


I have to be honest, I tried a nikon (older dslr) but equiped with only a 6mp sensor, even with an adequate lens nikkor 55-300 AFS ED. I just wasn't getting the reach, cropability or the IQ, and frankly the picturs where binned and the camera.lens sent packing, and again If Im honest I have had a much better experience with my bidge cameras , as they are not miles off the IQ of a dslr these days, and with a half decent bit of glass that helps big time, oh and a 600mm lens, so on a budget and If thats where anyone Intends like me, they are awsome "bang for your money"


P.


Finally got it right I think - Nikon D7500, Nikon 300 F4 PF, Nikon 1.4 X mk3 TC

@Swissphotographer - is it safe to assume these aircraft are taking off from Meiringen?

Lovely shot Mike, the reflections work a treat. I would like to lose the tailplane (I think) on the right and maybe include more of the wing. I know it's nit picking, but it's such a good subject, I think it deserves that little extra. Brilliant nonetheless.

I'll agree Mike. The exposure, light and the PP are brilliant but the composition seems a little odd to me. Lots of dead space top and left but the wing tip and tail feathers are cut off.

Scuff & Ryan: Thanks for the suggestions, I really appreciate any that I can get from the talented group we have in here :)

This image is uncropped. I battled a bit with the horizontal stab showing in the far right of the image but when I asked around most felt it showed how tight the SNJ was to our Harvard. His wing is actually beneath us. I'll play around with it though and when I get home I'll share another one from this series.

thanks again!

This was my impression as well. Great shot Mike!

Been committing mass pixelcide here at the ranch but, along the way, some gems have shaken loose from the archives:
