AIRLINERS.NET CREW PHOTO SCREENER
The helicopter is in the distance. You have to crop it tighter. And some sharpening is needed. Because this photo is a bit backlit, it will be hard to get contrast right (now the helicopter looks dark). If simply bumping up the brightness, you could find the sky will be overexposed.
Oh, yes, the sky's colour is slightly off. It looks a little pink to me.
Stephan, as you already noted yourself the photo was taken against the sun and that killed it. The background is so bright it hurts when looking at it.
The chopper while ok is still soft/blurry.
While the picture is not for here it might perfectly well serve other purposes (e.g. ads) where the lack of background is required.
