Hi - decided to go out and play with my recently purchased dSLR & Bigma at the recent Airshow held in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands. Photo was taken handheld at 320mm 1/1600 f/6.3 Exp.comp. -1 step ISO 200
The aircraft belongs to the Royal Netherlands Air force.
Have uploaded a few more for the enthusiasts.

Cheers - Herman

    The F16 is a sexy plane. I know the Netherlands Air Force has quite a few. I especially like the one with the flares.

    how did you go about choosing your exposure for this set...why did you choose (Exp Comp -1 ) for this particular set..

    thanks

    Hello Anson - having just moved into dSLR territory, I am still experimenting with my camera. I chose to under expose by -1 as it was a practically cloudless day. My thought at the time was that its better to under expose than have an over exposed picture. Under exposed shots can be rectified with software but if its over exposed..... you can't do much about it. At least, I don't think so. Hope this answers your question.

    Cheers - Herman

    I think the underexposure works well Hermann. They appear to be near twilight, however the sky has a great blue color to it, almots like a polarizing filter without the gradient change. Well done.
