Taking the plunge

At the recent Clacton Air show the Army parachute display team dropped in. Conditions were bright with a cloudless sky but hazy which made photography tricky as regards focus and exposure. Add to that the distance between the display and myself meant that I was disatisfied with the shots I got. One I do like has a striking blue smoke trail but other problems:-

Using Photoshop Elements 14 I have cropped and flipped the shot to home in one the action and get rid of the seagull. One of the new tools in Elements 14 is a haze removal tool, which works reasonably well, so now I have this shot to show you.

A little over-saturated perhaps but much better than I could have achieved with earlier versions of Elements, so I for one am happy with the upgrade

Went for a walk with the camera today in an Essex countryside village whilst my lovely lady was singing at a birthday party in the village hall. I did not know what the place was like except that there was a pub so all looked fine. My first impress...
