National Museum of Flight Airshow 2013, Scotland

Postby Peter Hill » Tue Jul 30, 2013 8:48 am

Hi Guys,

Here's my first efforts at an airshow. Not the best photos ever taken, but not to bad for a newbie like me. As always any feedback or tips would be welcome

Photos 1 and 2 have had their color and contrast fixed a little, photos 3 to five have no post done other than to crop extra sky.

I can currently only see one image (the second one), which makes me want to see the others too. I like how the angle of the plane suggests movement and speed, and the girl on top of the wing makes it even more exciting. Not the kind of place I'd like to be standing... :lol:

Hi Bjorn,

I've updated the links to my photos so hopefully everyone should be able to see them ok now.

You're right, nothing would make me stand on the wing of a plane like that! :D

All pictures show now, so the updating worked!

The bottom three images seem a little dark to me. I like how the people in the fourth picture are waving though, nice detail.

I agree with you, the last three photos are a little dark. The weather was drawing in and I found it a little hard to adjust to the changing conditions. Here's one I've tried to fix in photoshop.

Not bad at all, you do have some great shots there. I agree with Bjorn, the last ones are underexposed, but it's not something that can't be fixed. Good job :)

Thank you for the kind comments pierovera :D

I'm going to another airshow in a few weeks so I'll be looking for a few tips.
