Here's one for the "collective"

Wonderful Opportunity and Dynamite Subjects and despite not quite being able to get the exact formation we wanted, I managed to get all four planes in the frame and reasonably sharp.

But...

Something feels off and I can't nail it down. SO, feel free to tell me why this doesn't feel right?

This was built from two "Smart Object" frames in Photoshop which allowed me to have separate handles on the background and the airframes (essentially, you get raw converter controls for each layer.)
Dropped a mask over the top of the planes (so nothing would show) and then went

Jay, maybe you tried too hard to pull the airplanes out of the background, and would have been better off just going with a silhouette look?

I like the tilted horizon shot better too big Steve for what thats worth. Seems slightly tighter and adds a littlle drama.

Were they cycling the gear for photos or some other reason?

Hey Jay - If I've missed it I apologize, but did you get any tight shots of the B40? The more I look at the lines of that airplane, the more it grows on me. That drawn-out fuselage, with the pilot placed more towards the tail, reminds me of the GeeBee configuration in a very weird sort of way. Obviously such a comparison would be stretch (pun intended), but there is a unique balance to this design that I find most interesting. I guess I'm making a photo post request. Thanks

Jeff, I don't think I have any "in your face" looks at the 40 in flight as it was tail-end-Charlie for the four ship. I'll double check though...

Thanks for the Boom!

Ar, here we are at top again... My name ain't Zim, but that doesn't stop me shooting through airliner windows....
These were somewhere between Portland and San Diego.


Dear Lady Jo, please feel free to do as many window shots as you see fit. I like all three, and especially #1 I guess it's the portrait orientation that puts the cherry on top.

OK more blue it is then.

Since you ask so nicely
Here's some things in the desert...





Some boneyard type of place






What is this, a car test track? There seemed to be a few of this kind of place.

Jo, the first is the aircraft boneyard at the Southern California Logistics Airport in Victorville, CA and the second is Kia's automobile proving ground near Mojave. Honda's proving ground is a few miles north of that, near Cantil.

Among the other weird and wonderful things to be seen from the air over the CA desert is Lockheed Martin's hush-hush Radar Cross Section test facility near Helendale, where stealth technologies are proved out.

Thank you Jay. You'll just have to go back and get the 40 with a one-on-one Beckman A2A photo session

Thank you Steve. Today I learn!

I definitely saw another oval track. Don't know if I saw the Lockheed place.




Caught this place slipping under our engine. Spot the giant compass rose, and lines drawn for more runways? or things buried underground?






The second oval. Maybe this is the Honda one?
