Well, let’s have some fun with this one. Last year I went to my local airshow and was shooting the US Navy Blue Angels precision flight team. As usual, you get a lot that aren’t too good. In this case, I was trying to catch the team just as they broke from a diamond formation. The usual shots are kind of static but, the breaks and reforms offer some opportunities for shots I like. Here is what I got:
Not too exciting. As I panned, I managed to trip the shutterI missed the break and had them almost exactly in front of the sun. I was trying to see if there was anything that I could do to make it interesting so started playing with various hue and saturation and individual color sliders. Suddenly, I ended up with this.
It was a little too wierd and interesting to throw away but, I had no idea what I would ever do with it. Thanks to this challenge, it can see the light of day.
