    Absolutely horrible conditions for taking pictures on Saturday, but I did what I could. There was a lot of post-processing in some shots, just to recover what I couldn't capture with the camera itself.

    A link to all I decided to upload........and 8 pics below...

    Nice shots, I like the composition on most of them.

    They look kinda noisy though. What ISO?

    Nothing has been added to the pictures, the only PP I have done was to recover some of the picture that I couldn't capture due to the conditions.
    ISO 400 on all. ISO wasn't the problem, it was the conditions as I stated in the OP. Overcast as a bitch......what you absolutely don't want for an air show. :hsd:

    Overcast sucks, but occasionally you can get shots like those vapor trail shots and those are nice. Very nice shots, especially considering the weather...

    Yeah, I guess I can't argue for given conditions. I had a friend go on Sunday and shoot, sky was nice and blue and partly cloudy. The humidity was still up, so there were plenty of vapor shots. He got the one angle of the vapor ring I failed to get....... :hsd:......I believe he is on here too, I'll check....
