Nice shot...personally I like to push the darks a bit more. It's a trick to keep the detail in the shadows though...not a one step process.

@Tim Adams: What do you hear about the viability of the Reno air races this year? I'm tempted to go, if they hold them.


They are going to hold something, but right now it looks like only 11 Unlimiteds will be entered. The Unlimiteds are very fluid right now.

What filter (if any) were you using for these gorgeous shots?

Hey Brian - thanks for the kind words. On the super bug image, I had on my CP filter to help me deal with some serious southwestern desert brightness and the stark blue skies.

On the two BA images, I used no filter. The four ship take off has some unusual exhaust colors due to the bio fuel they use - smells like burning celery to me. I added a little contrast in post to help pop the BA's away from the mix of bio exhaust and white smoke.

The image of the three ship launch occurred when there was some serious haze issues being created by farming activity immediately east of NAFEC. Accordingly, I had to play with my LR4 and CS6 sliders to help the Hornets emerge more prominently from the haze.

Here is a late evening Cobra...

To Jim and all of you who offered your prayers for my 25 yr old Eugenie, who nearly died from blood poisoning which so nearly killed her earlier this year, she had her follow up open heart surgery today and the outcome is ++++.



Tim,

Eugenie is a beautiful young lady, so glad that the surgery went well. Thanks for letting us know, and remembering how many of us were pulling and praying for her.

Just got the confirmation that the MCAS airshow in Beaufort SC has been cancelled. Very disappointed because it would have been my first time to see the Blue's since I was about ten. Looks like I'm going to have to save to make the trek from North Carolina to Texas for Alliance. Maybe I'll even get to meet some of the great people that make this forum such a pleasure.

70 years ago today 617 squadron Royal Air Force was formed specifically to undertake one mission - Operation Chastise - this was to be the most audacious bombing raid ever undertaken.

The Squadron motto: Aprés moi, le déluge - 'After me, the flood'.

The Squadron is more commonly known as the Dambusters

One of the ex-crew chimed in that they are moving her over 1,700 miles to fix something that isn't wrong. Things are not real good in the Rod Lewis camp right now.
