Air Power

November 1st, 2010

An F/A-18 Super Hornet gets airborne with full thrust at Farnborough air show 2010. This is one ultimate show stopper!

Now come on! That's a model hanging from a string, isn't it? Really though, excellent image. Perfect for a wallpaper. Keep em' coming.

Maybe, a bit more saturation in the sky. It already looks like you burned the clouds down quite a bit as witnessed by the dark halos around them. Not objectionable, however, I wouldn't go any more than you already have there.

Clean and crisp, sharp with no noise... but something seems off because it is so clean. Why are there no tail numbers?

No improvements needed... just curious about how this was done.

Wow... this is one of the best shots I've seen on here for simplicity and clarity. Even down to the heat distortion from aft of the exhaust, it's so clear. The F/A-18 Superhornet is one awesome bird.

Nothing, really. Unless it was in formation with some others... ;-) Or flying with an F-22 Raptor.

A nice 3d model - can surely trick a lot of people into thinking it is real.

Dirty up the skins a bit more to make it look more realistic.

This one is a puzzle. If it's a shot of a real jet taking off, it's amazingly well focussed and composed. Still, the lack of identifying numbers on the tail and decals on the fuselage make it appear like an excellent 3D illustration. The lighting is too good to suggest a model to me, along with the density of detail, like the scorch marks at the edges of the exhaust cowlings, the adequately subtle engine fire and the heat waves trailing the plane.

Either way, it's a superb picture, involving a high level of skill either as a photographer or an illustrator. I can't criticize the results, however they were achieved.

It is very well armed, which suggests military, but no tail number or squadron markings. That makes me very skeptical. I think it is a VERY good rendering

Perfect sunny conditions, Exposure 1/2000 sec. ISO - 500, Focal length 400mm and ofcourse little touch up on photoshop. What you don't see is a USAF logo on the left wing which I removed and also the aircraft didn't had any registration number or markings on the tail or fuselage. It's all real my friends no 3D model or illustration. Thanks for appreciating the work!

WOW, I am very impressed for that being a real airplane!

USAF logo? Are you sure about that? I wasn't aware that the AF had any 18's, I thought they were navy birds. Although, I suppose that could explain the lack of affiliate markings on the tail since there are certainly no active F-18 Wings in the AF.

I wouldn't know how to improve on this. I think it's a great shot, thanks for submitting it!

@ Grahamburglar: You are absolutely right and I would like to correct myself, not exactlu USAF logo, as an asian am not aware what exactly you call that logo with a "STAR" in centre and normally you find it just over the wings of US military aircraft or below the canopy on fuselage of jets. Yes this belongs to US Navy. I will try and upload some more images of other air forces, hope the clear the voting process so that you guys can enjoy them....cheers!

tell me! I have an imac 27inch and this looks suburb... how did you do this shot?
It looks surreal...

There is nothing to improve on this image... I think it's perfect!

The jet is crystal clear, not a blur in sight. I'm really curious how this shot was taken.

The only problem I have with it is the jet is in the direct center of the image. This goes against the rule of thirds.

Amazing photo!

If you Google around for photos from this airshow you'll see that the photographer's comments check out. From the angle the photo is taken from, only 1 marking would be visible on this plane, which is on the left wingtip, which the photographer admitted to removing. The top of the 'N' in 'NAVY' is actually visible in the photograph just ahead of the left elevator.

See the following photos of the same aircraft from the same airshow:
