Snowbirds High Arch by 8TwilightAngel8 Snowbirds High Arch by 8TwilightAngel8

OMG a DD?! Thank you very much everyone, and a special thanks to :iconmhkame: for suggesting and :icon1pen: for featuring! :huggle: :blowkiss: This has really cheered me up!

Originally this was not going to be "altered" but after playing with contrast, color and levels, i got this very interesting result. No filters or actions were used, just very basic editing tools.

The Snowbirds at the Hamilton 2012 Airshow.

I really love this picture.  I had the chance to fly with the Snowbirds in... it was late '07, if I remember correctly.  Luckily for my stomach and sanity they didn't do anything this crazy with us in the planes, but we did fly formations, and being able to count the bolts on the back of a Tutor from the cockpit of the mid plane was definitely an experience!

Thank you! I love them too :heart: I can't wait until the next air show season! Hopefully they'll have some nice lighting. This year's Hamilton show was not the greatest by the time they came out :P

I never get tired of seeing them perform.

I was downtown (here in Kingston) a few years back when they were flying low over Queens University.  T'was a sight to see.  (sorry, no pics)

Neither do I! :love: I want to watch them all the time!

 

That's awesome! :D They did that in Cobourg when I was 5 years old. I think it was for a charity event, but I can't remember exactly :P

My fondest memory of them to date was from when I was about 4 or 5.  My dad worked for the airport at the time and asked them to do a fly by of our apartment building since it was not far from the airport.  He called my mom to take my brother and I out in the parking lot and she had us wave at them and the guy in the middle tipped his wings at us. 

Gotta be one of my best childhood memeories.

Terrific shot! This is the sort of photo that I think is fine with some editing, because it obviously brought out the planes and yet preserved the wonderful effect of the smoke! Congrats on the DD!

Thank you! :squee: Sorry this response is late! I just got to looking over the comments in depth today :faint: School has been keeping me occupied.

 

I agree with you about the editing. I don't normally like doing editing a work at all, unless I'm trying to salvage something really interesting from a shoot. This photo was alright without the alterations and I was going to upload it as it was, but I felt it was grayed and there wasn't as much color contrast between the planes and the sky to really make them pop (I believe the smoke from previous loops might have created that effect on the original). I literally did exactly as I described, sticking with the very basic editing tools in Photoshop and well I guess the result was quite strong! :giggle: Little things can make a big difference I suppose.

Relative to the Romulans..?

Seriously; who are The Snowbirds?

The Snowbirds are a Canadian aerobatics team that represent the Royal Canadian Air Force :D They do flying demonstrations across Canada and the United States throughout the summer months/air show season. They are famous for their tight formation flying (like they are doing in this photo) and stunts in vintage trainer aircraft called Tutors.

Yep.  Got it.  Went to the google site earlier [which, yeah, I shoulda thought of that] and read up on them.  Thanks for the info, nonetheless.
