Thanks Dan. I took the lens thinking nothing ventured nothing gained. If I can do it with my eyesight, then anyone can

Laura,

Manual focus or not, you are nocking them out of the park. Great photos and thanks for sharing. I really love the F-86 shot.

Nice! I have the Tamron 300/2.8 and a bunch of other manual lenses, so I had to ask. I haven't been bold enough to take it to an air show yet, though.

A couple from this years QCAS.



You did a great job on the 51 Tim, saw you walking around the static area. Mr. Klatt had a rather "interesting" ride down when he lost his canopy in his second act. What I thought was one hell of a superb short landing job for what little runway was left to him. Everyone was holding there breath!

I saw an update on FB about that... He deliberately ejected his canopy after his engine quit and threw oil over it, so he couldn't see! Glad he made it down in one piece.

Matt, thank you so much for posting your experience with Jane and her crew on Friday. Especially thanks for posting the photo of you all standing in front of the airplane, Jane with a smile on her face. I saw it last night but didn't get the chance to post to the thread. Today during the 4 hour drive home thoughts about what happened and what we saw flashed thru my mind. But I also thought of that picture, and how obvious it was that she loved what she was doing.

Laura, you made that manual focus lens sing! Especially love the "very loose" formation photo with the Sabre. I'm downloading my cards now, hopefully I'll have the chance to post a few soon.

I'd make a big metallic print of that last Corvette and hang it on my wall, if it were mine, J-A!

Laura,

Very nice set of images from Dayton. I hope you post a few more so I can see what went on. I just could not bring myself to go back even though the show must go on and that's what they would have wanted.

I'm starting to feel a little better about it and have looked at my photo tour images, I'll post a few later on.

Erich,

Jane and everybody else involved with the operation obviously loved what they did and they were a fun bunch to hang out with for a little bit. I'm glad the image helped you balance good with the bad.

Meeting them has helped me with some insight that has not come through with a lot of the news stories I have been reading.

Here is one of the more balanced ones I have come across. News Link

During the first quick glance thru my Dayton images this one jumped out at me. First time I've been able to capture the roll effect this well. Woohoo!

Hey, I've been so snowed under that I haven't thought to ask the ISAP'ers what you think of the new membership cards? I can't weigh in on the imagery, cuz I'm a little biased, but the card format, stock and design are all Larry Grace and Kevin Hong. I think they did an outstanding job! And yeah, I like the image pretty much.

On the same subject, after months of trying to explain to the card company what I wanted for my business card, and a couple of false starts, well 1,000 to be exact, the final iteration arrived late Friday, and they are outstanding!!
