    One for the Star Wars geeks. Post processing this was a lot of fun :)

    Xlog, that is amazing! What was the setup? Natural light?


    I have yet more planes.

    This dude blew a tire on touchdown...

    So while they jacked the plane up and swapped wheels, they put on a semi-impromptu tactical assault demo involving loads of helicopters.

    They even had an A109 with a door-mounted .50 cal (shooting blanks, of course) and I caught some sweet muzzle flash as the gunner opened fire.

    Love the second one, a slightly lower angle would have picked his head out slightly better I think but the backlighting's great as it is too! Shame about the pole thing, it distracts from the frame of the foliage a bit...

    Thanks, it was an impulse shot, he was talking to my dad (who is behind the greenery to the left) and my mum had just finished helping him with his bowtie I think (she was on the right, cropped her out)
    I then played around with the exposure, blacks and whites etc until I liked it a bit more, nothing methodical really :p

    I may have a go in photoshop or something later to try and edit out the pole, don't think lightroom can do that kinda stuff?

    Original shot:

    Edit:
    Looking at them now, I quite like the softer look of the original, I never now how to edit and then what to upload!
    Ah well, still happy with it :)

    This is fantastic! Lovely photo.

    Just looked at this thread and noticed how many planes there are, right after having just created a thread about them!

    Seeing the original I appreciate what you did with it even more, definitely prefer the edited. Thought for a second I maybe liked it better uncropped but no I think you did good! And yeah you'd need photoshop for the pole and it would probably be a giant pain in the ass to edit out.

    I haven't had anything up for a while, been trying to resist the urge to snap and just leave the camera on video but the sunset was awesome a few nights ago, managed to grab this:

    A photo that I took way back in April 2011, I quite like it. No post-processing as is the case with pretty much all of my photos.
