    Hey all,

    First time I've been to Cosford and this only my third air show. Had a really good time and I'm starting to learn what's what now haha.

    Still only got a cheap 55-250 Canon lens, but it's doing a decent job. I think I can almost justify getting a better quality lens with more reach now...

    Here are my favourites from the day:

    I also took some shots of people and such in an attempt to capture the spirit on the show. More pictures and a write-up are on my blog:

    Keep using that "cheap 55-250 Canon lens" Habitual.

    I've seen lots of photo's taken with mega-expensive kit that are not as well framed/composed as yours.

    Like lots of seriously good Audi car "owners" (?) here on audi-sport.net, there are those always are after something "better" (???).

    Stay with that "55-250 Canon" Habitual, the results for me are A1. [​IMG]

    You have some really good shots there. I have never been to the Gosford air show but might put it in the calendar now 👍
