    The Blue Angels came to the Reno Air Races for the first time in about 10 years, got some neat shots of them:

    Also a bunch of other photos of the races and stuff:

    Comments welcome, I kinda slacked on the PP and just batched a couple of settings across hundreds of photos at a time in Lightroom so I'm sure some of them are off but whatever.

    if you saturated the sky a bit bluer in 3 like the first 2 you would have an awesome shot :bowdown:

    it's mostly the angle of them in the sky, these all had the same settings, just up a couple points of saturation, strong contrast curve, etc.

    but yeah, I may get a couple of these printed and I'll have to work them over with some fake sky, it's pretty easy to do if you mask out the planes so they don't get overly blue/clipped
