meant to tell you what a cool picture this is. the composition is what really makes it - the way you use the whole frame, yet there's nothing extraneous. great job.

your timing is impeccable, I like it

these planes had me at my window all day, yet i couldn't be bothered to fight traffic to shoot some. this photo makes me wish I had. Nice job.
09/08/2003 03:58:20 PM
...it's an alright shot :)
congrats, Mikey, great job- any other nice shots from the air show?

Hey thanks everyone. This image was taken in Toronto at the CNE (Canadian National Ex) Airshow. They are the Royal Canadian Snowbirds. A very talented group of fighter pilots. If you ever have a chance to see them I recommend you do.

Anyway thanks to all now and in the past who gave me great advice.
DPCHALLENG is a great amature photographers resource.

Congratulations, you deserved the success with the terrific image of the Snowbirds.
09/08/2003 07:38:34 AM
one of my top rated pictures. excellent work
09/08/2003 01:26:52 AM
stunning. stunning. stunning.

09/08/2003 01:11:57 AM
Absolutely awesome shot, the timing is perfect!

Says an awful lot about the flyers too, look how perfectly they are in position even following a look like that.

09/08/2003 12:44:21 AM
Super job! Congratulations!
09/08/2003 12:28:30 AM
Congrats on a well deserved ribbon. Love the shot :)

I was in Toronto during the Ex and on my way out of the city there were fighter planes zooming back and forth overhead. Nothing like this impressive, though! Great shot :)

Great timing. Great capture. One of my favorites.
09/07/2003 01:56:00 PM
good composition 8
09/07/2003 08:13:05 AM
Awesome capture. Good framing.... looks like they didn't make it easy for you. Nice work.
09/07/2003 02:24:22 AM
If only the nearest plane hadn't been a teensy bit late making the maneuver you'd have gotten a tiny bit of sky at the top. Excellent action shot.
09/06/2003 09:52:22 PM
Nice job
09/06/2003 01:30:53 AM
This one is a winner for sure. great patterns. great repetition. good color
09/05/2003 04:45:14 PM
Photography is all about timing and you have caputured this just right. excellent
09/05/2003 01:50:42 PM
Clearly the best rendition of repetition in this challenge. My only gripe is the close crop on the top, but I understand it may not have been avoidable. 10
09/05/2003 01:25:35 PM
Probably my favorite shot of the challenge! I may have cropped it a little differently -- either zooming in closer on the planes in a vertical format, or moving it back just a hair so that the contrails at the top aren't cropped out. But this is still a great shot -- hopefully there will be a ribbon tacked to it soon! - 9
09/05/2003 11:44:32 AM
excellent capture. good job on this one.
09/03/2003 04:32:14 PM
Hurray for the Snowbirds!. Great shot. Especially the framing and composition. 10 Morgan
09/03/2003 02:27:35 PM
10/10 very nice ... good luck
09/03/2003 01:19:36 PM
cool composition - just a slight touch too tight at the top though ?
09/02/2003 09:17:37 PM
awesome :)
09/02/2003 08:39:39 PM
WoW!! Of course you will be in the top running -- way to go! 10
09/02/2003 01:26:54 PM
Red arows? i heard that they where in poland with a show 9.
09/02/2003 07:03:48 AM
This certainly is original. The composition is incredible. Just wish you had gotten all the vapor trails in at the top of the image - 9.
09/01/2003 11:56:42 PM
Love the composition and cropping! Excellent sky color as well.
09/01/2003 07:36:28 PM
Definately a good capture, i predict you will do very well in this challenge. Good work.
09/01/2003 04:23:02 PM
can't argue whether this is repetition - precision repetition for sure.
09/01/2003 02:32:31 PM
Very cool picture! Nothing more that can be said about it! - 9
09/01/2003 10:54:33 AM
Beautiful shot, great eye, good timing. Very nice composition. This will make a great print. Very good. Congrats.
09/01/2003 08:22:21 AM
A few pixels higher would be great, to cover all the smoke. Great capture!
09/01/2003 05:01:42 AM
Well done - this isn't at all easy to achieve. Spot on challenge. - 9
09/01/2003 01:01:05 AM
Nice Shot. Perfect having the planes in the bottom left corner. Very good.
