Typhoon climbing at a hundred feet or so at Bournemouth Air Show.
It was a grey, overcast day so the background has been selected,coloured and gradient filled via a vector mask to improve the weather. Otherwise it was processed from RAW in PS, smart sharpened plus NI, added a border, resized and saved for the web.
The flare is natural as are the after burners!

I like the sun in this...sky could have done with a boost

I watched this at the shoreham airshow last weekend. Amazing noise it makes. Much better than my photos.

That's one mean flying machine. Pixel-peeping here, but a little detail was lost to the (probably) generous crop.

Well captured! I love the glint of sunlight off the fuselage. Very sharp and well composed resulting in a dramatic image.

With no point of reference in the frame I'd rotate it a bit so the plane isn't at such a steep angle, it might feel a bit more "comfortable" to view then
