I appreciate the positive feedback on the Talon shot. Larger forces gave me the opportunity, I was simply lucky enough to be there and press the button.

While I admire your humility, this was clearly a case of preparation meeting opportunity my friend, well done.


As well as a big dose of "Do you want the shot or not?"

As I was on the other side of the fence watching I could almost hear the thoughts…
click, click, click…cool…click, click, click…awesome…click, click, click…that wing's getting awful close…click, click, duck!

It ain't what I consider "art", but I can tell you that it was not an easy capture!! 100 knot closure differential is a real challenge, especially when you have one pass to get it because the subjects are going through JetA like...........well you know the euphemism

I'm tempted to pick up another Canon 100-400. I've been holding off because there were rumors that the push me/pull you design was going to be replaced and updated, but I have zero confidence that Canon has any interest in their update program. Given dwindling sales numbers for both Canon and Nikon (which could be partially due to lack of innovation), we might be shooting with our existing gear for a while. Gave away my 200-400 because someone from Nat Geo needed it worse than I did, they've ordered me another one.

Ok, True Confession time... I moved Randy closer to the Talon in post.

What lens did you create that stunning Bokeh with?

Why do I always picture Rodolfo with a criss cross of bullet bandaleros?

Could the 200-400 be any sharper than that lens, or for that matter can the Series II be sharper? Just wonderful!

This is where you and I part company, Jay, on philosophical grounds. How could you allow yourself to move the MiG in this shot?

The only acceptable thing to do in this case would be to move the T-38. Like I did.
