You're too kind Rodolfo, thank you. If I had been photographing in more typical Arizona blue skies and puffy white clouds, the 35 may have looked better.
When I have some texture or variation in a storm cloud layer, I can usually pull some detail from the background - like I did with the F-35. Especially if the clouds are a mix of dark (primarily) with splotches of white. However, in some cases the cloud layer was solid with little if any texture or contrast. That has been a real challenge for me with several images from this particular day....Show more →
Dear Jeff, I hear you and feel your pain. All the modern “in service” jets I've encountered have the special, low viability, grey (ish) paint jobs. Said paint job is very effective – grey day = grey 'plane - purple blue dark stormy sky = same for 'plane. So white balance is a nightmare. Green fields and blue sky? Take your pick – one right the other not so much, or compromise between the two and it looks ….. “alternative”. No matter – as you point out – grey clag is the real downer. Getting any visual contrast I find very difficult. I usually end up with halos around the aircraft. I don't know if masking is the answer – I need to learn how to do that properly - to find out.
So I have no answer for you – but your kind enquiry deserves an answer. Accordingly, give me some time, and I will post a result – good, bad, or indifferent. In the meantime, could you post a raw version of your Prowler image?
