|Taken at an airshow in Horsham, PA. I don't expect this to do well (its not exactly original), but I do feel that it meets the challenge. I had a few that I liked better (tighter formations, more planes in the shot), but this best conveyed beauty to me through the tight formation between the jets as well as the cloudy/blue sky. I had a lot of nice shots that had one of these two elements, but few with both. This formation is traditionally flown with a WWII era aircraft as well, but for some reason there wasn't one at this airshow. I had fun and would like to shoot another airshow in the future, but hopefully with a much better lens, as I found many shots to be soft (though in focus) and had to stop down as a result, forcing me to increase the ISO.
