Those Blue Angels are amazing. Incredible you got any shots at all, I would have been shaking from their performance! The sun was a a nice angle for that one of them in formation, it almost looks a little bit abstract.

Jess, if you play around with Levels you'll be able to get more info from the images.
I'll be deleting the image below, in a couple of days but here's what I got from a screen shot of the "full" image.

IMO, not very sure about my monitor, the pics look about 2 stops underexposed.
Looking forward to correct me if I am wrong.
Am sure this was great job catching these birds when they are in full speed.

JC, I tried adjusting the levels before I posted these but didn't like the results. I'm not very good at PP.
Photomad, these are underexposed. I was shooting against a hazy blue sky with the sun in my face. All were taken at f8. I should have opened up more but was afraid everything would get blown out. I'll know better next time.

I just realized that when you click on my photos they open up the same size as in the post instead of larger. What I do wrong?
