This is the only airworthy Cosmic Wind zipping past at Duxford airshow last Sunday.
A wonderful aeroplane, stunningly captured as it opens the skies with its power.
Well it did shift! Thanks for you kind words Nathan.
Your thumbnail caught my eye immediately.
I wish that I could upload a mod. as there's a really good shot in there just trying to get out. As it is it's underexposed; that sky is actually quite blue.
I used curves to establish a black and a white threshold then applied a very gentle 'S' curve to brighten it a touch more. Finally, I sharpened it.
Hope this helps.
Bren, I tip my hat to your post processing skills, but there was bugger all blue in that sky - on site that is. The rest of was down to being optimised in an XP VM which let's me know instantly when I've gone too far. You'd be surprised at the number of post processing halos and jaggies that appear, when viewed through that unkind prism...
Alright, it's a greyish-blue!
What's an XP VM?
Windows XP Virtual Machine - just load that old OS disc you have into VMPlayer, and hey presto, you have a hosted operating system, which is a hell of a lot more friendly than dual boot.
Oh I see!
Considering the limited power, this was impressively fast, wasn't it?
Oh yes. Of course, this and the fact it was no bigger than a flea, made it a bugger to take pictures of! Still, t'was all very entertaining
