Another Go At The Typhoon

Sun Jul 16, 2006 6:57 am


I took this today at RIAT 2006 - Fairford. Is this up to quality?

Ive changed the contrast a bit, partly why it might look slightly dark underneath, but it isn't in the original.

Ive got plenty of others if this doesn't make the cut  Smile

Opinions would be great

Too bright and grainy; I'd also try a sightly wider crop.
Might stand a fair chance after correction of these issues.

Good luck!

Looks soft to me.

Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

My monitor does not show up grain too well but it does need more sharpness.

Nice one.

Hi Ben, it sits at a nice angle. But its soft. Also a bit flat but its always tricky with that harsh light you've been thrown. Try a litle more ps and see how you go. Work on the sharpening (aircraft only) and the contrast.

Good luck

All of the above and despite this being ""(I know you all thought it was!) this one is in my mind cropped just a little tight!!

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!
