Hi Billy,

You caught this one well with just enough blur to the blades, well done.

There's a couple of things you could try when processing and of course I can only talk for "elements/ps/cs" etc. I have yet to find out what software you use, but if you go "Image" - "Adjustments" - "levels" one of the easiest things to do is when the level's window appears at the top there should be a box which say's "Default", click on this and you will get certain options. If you then click on "Midtones Darker" it will put a little bit of colour back into the sky, but you will then need to erase it from the rest of the image or leave it, it's your shot and your taste. Then if you go to "Vibrance" and increase it by 25% it will just give you that edge, Billy don't go for "saturation" it's a full on effect. The image also looks a little unbalanced so I have extended the left of the image and cropped some from the right. See what you think.

Billy if you get stuck, get in touch as normal and i'll talk you through it.

Take care

In addition to Martins suggestion, the shot is not straight if you look at the ground as a reference, its tilted down towards the left, - so just a little bit of straightening.

Follow all the above advice.I'm sure these photographers know their stuff - the only thing I'd add is if I were taking this picture I'd probably have waited till the helicopter had cleared the building.
Hope all the advice is helpful on all your shots.GrinKate

Nothing to add to the above Billy, except to say that this is a much better image than yesterday's.
