Air Show 2

YESTERDAY - What most people liked best about yesterday's shot was the silhouettes. Some wished that I had cropped the photograph to just the silhouettes. The reason for not doing that is that this is kind of a story telling series and that was my opening shot, and I felt that I needed more than silhouettes for my beginning. For fun, I went back into LR and did a crop; it looks pretty cool.

NIKON D700 1/200 second F/6.3 ISO 400 24 mm (35mm equiv.)

Glad yesterday's shot went down so well with everyone else and not just me! Just the silhouettes would certainly be an abstract shot ..I'd like to see it one day!
This shot really brings out the heat in it all..I suppose the orange and reds help! Good one!
