CH47 Rear Gunner

It's not a plane as such, but a helicopter instead. Can I have it anyway?

Hi Mate
This would work better if the shadows were lifted, difficult shooting in this envieroment so well done.

Hey Trev,

You're absolutely right - and I've lifted the shadows as much as I can already. This was on a Canon Ixus velcroed to the front of my body armour, so tricky conditions to say the least. I'm gradually going back through the original shots, so there may be some better ones en route. It's taken a while to get to the point where I'm happy showing them.

First welcome to the site, only advice I can offer when you shoot, if your camera has the function to shoot in Raw then always shoot in this mode because it is a non distructive file, My Son was on Camp Bastion for a year as a civvie done 14 years in REME, now works for SAS maintaining ther vehicles mostly the Jackal, this year he has been to Kenya, Canada, Oman, and in the UK he is based in Hereford, while in Afganistan he was on 250.00 a day tax free, so you know what to do when you leave my friend, just keep safe my friend and all your mates and God Bless.
