    Bill, you were on fire this year. Your stuff is excellent. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of your stuff.

    That shot of mine didn't start the way it came out. Initially I saw the two planes (actually 3, there is a thunder mustang to the left) in the hanger and figured it wasn't a bad shot but nothing all that exciting. It wasn't till I sat down and started working with it that I thought there was potential for something really cool. I set about darkening the back of the image, and as I turned down the lights (so to say) the rest of the picture started to present itself. So I went for it. A little of this, a bit of that. Crap, too much of that, back up... lets try some of this... yeah that works. A little more? No, too much. 10 minutes or so later, that was what I had. I'll take it! Its funny how things start off one way, and end up another.

    Bill,

    Did you happen to get any of the Biplane (Gold, specifically)? Your shots are amazing and so well-zoomed. It's a different perspective and I'd love to see Bipes if you have 'em.

    I've got at least one from the pylons. I'll try and post what I have when I get home this afternoon.

    I like that one Will. Sorry Sam. As I eluded to earlier, I was in a foul-ish mood and I mostly stayed in my secret hideout. I'm not proud to admit it, but I only shot Sport and Unlimited Gold on Sunday. Eleven months to get my act together.

    Last installment, and here is the link to them all: https://pbase.com/wjpearce/reno_2021

    A definitive Gold Race shot, and something I've never seen this way. That spray bar water flowing back under the wing is quite unique (and very cool). I had somehow never thought about how the air heated by the oil coolers exited the airframe. Now I know. Having Argo next to the Dread Sled also really highlights the extent of the surgery necessary to add a second oil cooler and whatever else is lurking in those wing roots.

    It's been a great little trip here Bill. Maybe it's just as well that you were off muttering or whatever much of the week.. If you shot all week and as much as the young guys we'd be here til Christmas oohing and ahing and not getting anything useful done. Great work...

    I'd like at some point to put up some shots of Rapid Travel -- I really liked that project and a lot of people here may not have seen it much. You mentioned at one point being affected by that event -- would you rather I didn't?

    I right clicked and "open image in new tab" and was able o see the image more full on!

    Not sure what the native resolution of the shot is but it looked really good at 200% (edge browsersized)

    Oh shoot.. I mean the second from the bottom shot.. the spray bar capture is excellent!

    I've got just one that I've found so far. I might have more, but I don't know.
