Thanks to all! I'm just in shock at having "doubled". It'll be pure hell to follow tho.
I really want to thank all the voters for seeing how the blue played as a little more than just a background here.

Congratulations on the great work!

We use to call Mechanical Engineers "Tin Knockers" but not sure what they call one in the electronics field. Plumbing Engineers were call "Turd Herders" and Electrical Engineers (Me) were all called "Sparky"

Again very well done.

Great capture, I give this one an 8, although I think the subject isn't blue, the background is, but what the heck, it's one helluva picture. Maybe a ribbon? good luck!

One of the best. Congratulations. And a 10.

Excellent catch! I'm sure some will complain that your "subject" isn't blue - but your image SHOUTS blue all the way. It meets the challenge without any doubt. Exposure = perfect. Compsition = near perfect in that it may need a little more space in front and less of the smoked-filled area. Focus = Perfect.

Nice, super sharp capture. Great placement of the planes within the frame. Nice contrast between the bright whites & reds and the blue sky. Only, too bad the top of the wings are in the shade, it dulls the nice reds a bit.
