Man, next time you do a photoshop work, at least leave the wings of the first plane fully visible and not fading into the blue...

What opinion? That the plane has an half trasparent wing is a fact.

Behind The Lens

Location

During Melbourne F1 Grand Prix

Time

?

Lighting

All natural light.

Equipment

No tripod. Nikon D800 + Nikkor 135mm F2 Dc Iso 400 F5.6 @ 1/4000s

Inspiration

Having fun

Editing

Just a small cropping. Added: All the subjects where in the same frame at the same time, the only 2 post-editing that I did was to delete the middle part of the sky to make the motorbike and the planes a bit closer end re-adjust the exposure of the full frame in the way that I liked it more.

In my camera bag

Nikon FX and Fujifilm APS are often in my bag but some of my pics on this site have been taken long time ago when the glorious analogue camera time was the only way and the gear I used included 35mm, medium and large format camera on film.

Feedback

Have fun! This picture was not taken with the intention to be a perfect professional shot or to win any awards of any kind but was taken for fun while waiting for the start of the F1 Grand Prix and even more the postproduction was added to please my experimenting feelings. Everybody involved in creating an image of any kind is trying to create and emotion. Sometime it works, many other times it doesn’t.
