    Thanks Bill... I did this one handheld and so PTGui PRO for me does a better job than Photoshop 5.0 ... although I hear CS5.5 (Photoshop 5.1) does a superb job of aligning... But ultimately I am so used to the workflow of PTGui I know nothing better :-)

    They brought into Photoshop to plug some holes where I did not have image data (love that content aware fill!!!) and output directly to Zoomify which is free with Photoshop...

    Cheers!

    Manny, I am I stunned and speachlees that you got the HONOR of flying in the Greatest aircraft to ever grace the sky's... It took me a week to gather my thoughts to reply to this as every time I would try to reply I would start to cry in the awe of the incredible opportunity. The only thing more incredible than your shoot was if it had a Sherpa behind it for an air to air with another Sherpa. I just threw away my 7d as I understand that I will never have an opportunity like this. I am honored to have met you SIR

    I realize I haven't uploaded any Jones Beach shots yet, but you know what, Jones Beach didn't have the Sherpa...





    While everyone was stuck gawking at this beauty taxiing past, I was able to tear my lens away just long enough to catch the world premiere flyby of the polished aluminum F22! I can't believe noone else caught it! Flew by quick, sorry for the blur/lack of sharpness...

    Shoot first, ask questions later.

    Dan, While the F-22 was so fast that I did not see it, the only reason why he went so fast past was he did not want to take up the Sherpa's airshow time! I was actually glad they grounded the F-22.... Too bad it was not the Thunderbirds year to be there, The probably would have rather flown down to Mexico to make way for the Sherpa, and we probably would have had a second high speed Sherpa pass!!!

    P.S. I hear the real reason the Thunderbirds went to Turkey was because the Blue Angels played a prank on them and told them that the Sherpa would be there for the Jones Beach Airshow!

    You guys TOTALLY missed the new research platform SHERPA with the skid jet insert. They simply load it into the cargo bay and BOOM, instant power boost.

    Manny, you did not mention how THIRSTY that engine is...they unloaded the fuel truck in this photo for that one burner pass!!!! To Say it was EPIC was an understatement. Here I was looking at the goods!

    Moose, I assure you not much further out than you... and only on weekends. During the week, I am fairly normal (he said timidly)
