The Red Arrows at Dunsfold Wings & Wheels 2010. V1 has been simply manipulated using the Selective Colour and Hdr Toning Tools in CS5. I have deliberately increased the noise using the Hdr Tone Tool detail slider as I feel the grain adds to the force of the image. V2 is the original, just tweaked on levels.
Up for Mods if anybody wants to have a go.
Settings: F/7.1 1/640sec ISO100 AV@420mm handheld

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload - always interesting and helpful to read views on two versions.

The original's good in it's own right but I particularly like the work that you've done on V1 - very effective Sylvia!

Fantastic image Sylvia - I really like what you've done in V1, giving the image so much more impact and colour. Keep experimenting.

For me these are right on the button Sylvia especially V 1. I love the power and impact you have created in V1. Full of mood and atmosphere. You will have to show me how it is done oneday.

On 1st viewing I though that this had some great atmostphere and was so diffferent to the usual display shots and on reading your narrative I can see why.
Fantastic treatment.

Super shot. I like the direction that #1 is moving in but the HDR seems to have introduced a green tinge to the clouds towards the top of the frame, and the noise makes the image look a little over-worked, to me. I had a go with a simple curves adjustment, a little warming of the colours and a bit of a crop, for a similar take on the shot.
