    This is a 12 shot composite of an Air Force F-22 doing a high speed very tight turn. I kept the distance true to the original shot series. I was privileged to attend a private, pre thunderbirds show where this pilot did some rather unique maneuvers, including this turn. Most of the pilots who finished their training on the f-22 got this framed image as a present courtesy of a former pilot.

    Tricky one with all that vapour and engine wash. Nicely done!

    It was a full afterburner turn that was in an ellipse of less than a half mile…the boy was cooking!

    Nicely done indeed. I can imagine you using this in a presentation… “So, I shot an F-22 at f/11. I mean…”

    I love this.  Well done.  It would be a good article if you are interested.  You could share how you captured the images and then how you produced the image.  Also consider starting to also post these images in the community so people can stop on one page and see your images.  Once again, well done.
