Trust me I have had dealings with him!

Re: Très bas et très rapide des Mirages français

As I said in the reply earlier, the image is sharp, I would not even have taken it from the card if it wasn't, other people are welcome to their opionion, it really is of no consequence to me at all.
As for sending anyone my RAW files, it don't happen unless its on a contract of rights usage!

Possibly the best set Ive seen so far Peter, they look 'real', whereas so many others look like screengrabs from "RIAT the computer game" very nice I like them!

Flickr maintenance

A heads up that Flickr is going to be down for 6 hours (4pm to 10 pm PDT on Thursday, which I think is overnight for us in the UK) so expect images that are hosted there to come up as red crosses on the forums during that time!

You are evolving, metamorphosing from a 'spotter with a camera' into an 'aviation photographer' perhaps!!! :smile:

Re: Getting the best out of my Cannon EOS

You will need to post some EXIF data (shutter speed etc) and a cropped selection at 100%, because a resized image won't be of help in identifying a problem!
