I took this photo a week ago and attempted to follow advice from fellow photographers in the forum here
... (I have a post on here that summarised the whole thing)
However, it has turned out not too hot... none of my photos have.
Now, a tiny part of my problem may be a dirty lens (you can see some dirt on the lens just to the right of the prop on the right most plane), but I don't think that is the reason for the dull photo.
The Merlin pageant takes place in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire (where they developed the flying bedstead). http://www.merlinflyingclub.co.uk/pageant.html
I may be going to Waddington next week to try more, but if I can't get sparkling photos, I might as well give up. What do I do to make it shine? Am I able to recover it in photoshop (taken in raw).
