Red Arrows at Dawlish Airshow

Red Arrows at Dawlish AirshowIts quite difficult to get an original image of the Red Arrows, but I think you have managed it here by singling out the three aircraft. The tight crop works and I dont think on a shot like this there is any need to give room for them to fly into. I tried to do a mod but couldn't get what I wanted. Your colours seem to be a bit off?, too cool and blue (look at the white stripe of the aircraft). The only other thing I would suggest is to increase the brightness of the whole image in levels as it seems a little too dark overall. Hope this helps.

Cuban Night

Cuban NightI like this image and I can see that you knew exactly what effect you wanted when taking it. Perhapse a more panoramic crop would work better as there is a lot of unnecessary foreground. Just a thought, hope you dont mind.....Rich.

Catch Me If You Can

Catch Me If You CanGreat lighting and colours, just a shame the coots/moorehens are a bit out of focus. Crop is a bit tight, could do with a bit more above and to the left. Never the less a lovely shot, you dont get much time to capture these sort of shots, so well done. Rich.

BoomerangGreat aircraft shot, this works well because there are no background distractions (crowd, other aircraft etc..) and the prop and backgound are blurred as they should be. (Perhapse clone out the marking bottom left of shot though?).
With warbirds what you are looking for is an authentic shot. This is defineately one, but in my humble opinion you should either go for colour or black and white as opposed to an arty combination of both. A bit more room in front and/or behind the aircraft giving a more panoramic view could also work with a bit of tinkering in Photoshop.(The only other real critisism is the modern helmeted pilot, but theres nothing you can do about that!) Keep um coming. Rich

ForeverNo critique needed, this is an excellent abstact that works extremely well in mono. Perhapse just a touch of sharpening. If you had used a smaller apeture this would have solved the problem with a wider depth of field, say f10 upwards, which could have been done as you must have used a tripod at such a slow shutter speed. You should be proud of this image. Rich.

Icy takeoff

Icy takeoffIdealy you need more space on the right for him to fly into so he is more off to the left. If there is nothing of the image on that side you can sometimes get away with increasing the size of the canvas in elements or whatever software you have and clone into it, (if that makes sense). This is quite difficult to hide though and you can't stretch the image all that much, but its worth a go. Thanks for responding. Cheers, Rich.

Icy takeoff

Icy takeoffSharp in the right places and the wing blur adds movement to the image. Try a crop which gives him/her a bit of space to fly into. Nice shot. Rich.
