Does this actually need a tittle?

This is, of course, the Red Arrows! Flying at Farnborough airshow yesterday, 14/7/12, and, as they normally are, were fantastic!

Hi George - good to see you posting your photos on here again. Smile

Great capture. In the mod I've uploaded for you, I've brightened the sky up a bit: take a look and see what you think.

Ah, yes, that looks really nice, I do mostly try to not edit any of my photos. The only edit I did in this one was a slight sharpen. Was needed as taking pictures of planes on cloudy days makes the edges funny. But looks nice! Will consider it with one of the other 1500 photos I got on the day. Grin

Hi George, the composition works well.

No shame in editing them. Every single one of my airshow shots gets at least some editing.

I would take a slightly different approach to CB though. The overcast conditions have muted the colours so I would increase the saturation a bit to make the red of the red arrows 'pop' a bit more. I think the brightness of the sky is about right, however I would focus on trying to pull some detail out of the shadows in the underneath of the aircraft so they do not look as dark against it. A levels tweak is all it would take or a curve adjustment if you have software that allows you to do it.
