Actually, I hate to admit it but that one was pretty easy - SAA made the unusual but welcome decision to "perform" at the Duxford Centenary airshow, so the aircraft was posing for the cameras. As to holding the camera still, well Canon Image Stablisation is a big help.
I will take credit for the sky though
- washed out skies is something I hate, so I'm always trying to get a little tone and texture even on an overcast day. I find with the DSLR's excellent lattitude in the shadow end of the scale, a little underexposure usually helps. The midtones can easily be restored to a suitable level in PS
, and it does ensure you record whatever highlight detail might exist.
Love the fact it got all the fours! Makes it look significant somehow.
