    I'm just beginning to go through all my pictures. But I just want to share this one to start things off.

    The museums P38 coming through a loop.

    270mm, ISO800, F11, 1/1600 second

    Nice one. Just a question though: why chose ISO800 on a bright, sunny day?

    I usually set my camera on A priority (F11) and found that with auto-ISO, the shutter speeds were too fast (so I missed shots) for when I was shooting the sky nearing the sun. So I set the ISO to 800 and the camera seemed to like it. I would have gone down lower but I didnt want the shutter speeds to drop too low to where I might get blurred pictures.

    I also noticed that the lower the ISO, the bluer the sky became.

    Thanks for the explanation on the ISO. I'm far from being a good photographer but I tend to like getting my props to blur a bit which means shooting down to 1/250 ish. The downside is that the risk of camera shale also goes up.

    Just remember that at 200mph, the subject is traveling at 300/ft a second. You need to get things down to a millisecond or less to minimize airframe blur.

    Disclaimer and warning! If anyone is offended by the flag of the United Sates of America; don't look! Just go away! (I've always wanted to say that to eternally offended politically correct wimps.)

    I was trying some artistry by getting the aircraft bracketed by the US flags. Sometimes it worked. Most of the time it didnt.
