The Red Arrows

By dougv  
Taken at a very rainy Yorkshire Air Show at Elvington on 18th August.

Slight tweaks to exposure, levels and curves in Capture One LE.
Saved as a TIFF file and further slight adjustments made in Photoshop.

Shot hand held at 300mm 1/200 sec f10.0 ISO 100

Hope you like it.
Comments welcome.

A fine shot of the red arrows in formation, like the plumes of smoke

Thanks Edmund.
It was the first time out with the camera since regaining the full use of my hand.
Most shots were a bit of a disaster, but a few turned out OK.

Thanks Caleb.
Sorry I didn't get away to meet up with you and Ian, but it was nice to meet you both again.
We had quite a family gathering going on and I thought it unwise to disappear off...

How did you and Ian do?

Well caught Doug, didn't see you but we were up in the far area near the camping area. Agree with you about the wet weather...urgghh!

Thanks Jacqueline.
My niece and her husband were camping for the weekend, so we went up to the camp site for a quick visit, then we walked back down to be near the car park.
My Father-in-law is disabled, so we didn't want to be too far away from the car.
I see you managed to get the split which I missed!

Thank you kind Sir!
They were actually in the Diamond 9 formation, but you can't tell from that angle.
