Fly By

By Andy_Curtis    
One of my favourite images of Last years Royal International Air Tattoo.

Having the standard kit lens (10-30mm) made it difficult to get a nice, close up shot of the action, But with some cropping, I think I did okay.

The quality is there, but the aircraft really need to be frame filling for impact and you say you already cropped this? You need a longer lens for aerial shots. 300mm at least. You are going to struggle with a compact.

This was a few days after I bought the camera. So only had the kit lens. I no longer use this camera.
And I wasn't so sure about cropping it further. I like the expanse of te blue sky myself. But I tighter crop would look very nice.

I have a telephoto lens ready for this years RIAT Smile

It's certainly true that for bitingly sharp frame-filling shots, you need a longer lens. But for general views, a compact is fine, so long as you aren't aspiring to publishing on the cover of a magazine!

My criticism of the shot is that the planes are right in the middle. I'll do a crop to put them slightly less central. I'm also going to rotate, so that they're climbing - it may nto be accurate, but it will, I hope, convey a feeling of "onwards and upwards" - and finally, I'll flop the shot, so that they're heading to the right. Please have a look at this - it may give more of a feel of progress, as we're culturally keyed to left-to-right travel. How does it look to you?
