This week's photos are big on night shots and dynamic lighting, and have been colored, in part, by the most recent bombing campaign in the Middle East. In our lead shot, two F-15E Strike Eagles are on full afterburner in the early morning following a strike in Syria.

Take a look below for the rest of this week's highlights, or head right into the gallery for a full roundup of our favorites.
