Fireworks & an FA-18

At the S.F Giants-Cincinnati playoff game, treated to a fly over form Lemoore NAS



















I took these all with the 400/f5.6.

When I heard something over the PA about a fly over & Lemoore NAS, I quickly took the TC off and just picked them up coming over left field. I should have bump the exposure up, as you should for air shots/dark aircraft, but was a bit behind. Could have bumped ISO a stop too!
In the third shot, I know I shouldn't have the plane leaving the frame, but I was basically panning straight overhead..

Morris,
Yea, I agree.
They were launching these red fireworks behind the scoreboard,
much lower than than the aircraft. But the tele compression
makes it look much closer.
