100 Shots - Day 1 Bray Air Display - Updated
Yesterday, I posted some tips for shooting the Bray Air Display based on my experience from the 2010 Display and the 2013 Dublin Flighfest. So how did I get on? Well, my 100 best shots from the day are posted below, culled from 1,410 taken! This eats a lot of time . . . especially when you add cropping, 100% zoom check for focus, and processing. Thank goodness for Lightroom’s ability to copy and paste edits!
And what did I learn?
That’s it – time to get ready for today’s show! And if you have read this far, you will see I lied – it’s actually 101 shots. After culling out 1,309 shots I thought I was due a break!

Fantastic shots. I just had s thought! There's more technology in your camera than some of those planes. Hope to catch up soon. John.
Thanks for Sharing your fabulous photos John
