A Photo a Week Challenge: Dead Center

The one thing I did not like about this photo was the fact that I hit it dead center! I prefer an aircraft flying into the image space, from one of the rule-of-thirds references.

This was taken at the Atlantic City Air Show (2010). I was panning rapidly to capture something close to a clear image. Got lucky and captured the change in air density of the airflow around the aircraft as it approached the speed of sound–transonic flight. The shock wave is just beginning to form around the tail of the aircraft. I have seen much more dramatic such photos, but this is the one I got!
