Scone 27 Nov 20, winter sunshine

Today's B-log The second time this week I have made the two hour drive from my Dad's house direct to Perth. It's beginning to get to be a habit that I don't want but Saturday looked like being the best day of the weekend and I had to make the trip. Having a stroke victim of a father isn't much fun a...

Re: Photoshop and other with sky change software.

I had the opportunity to make a presentation to my local camera club last night on the Photoshop Sky Replacement tool and it raised some points that is worth sharing. The Tool comes with a set number of skies, you can add your own as the default ones will become very hackneyed to the discerning view...

Re: Photoshop and other with sky change software.

Composite photos are nothing new, however I am fundamentally with the previous posters. The likes of Luminar and it's fantastic sky replacement tool is just not "natural" enough for me, if it needs be, I don't mind dodging and burning a sky that was there when the photo was taken. Anyway, at the end...

Re: Scone 17 Oct 20

Scone (Skoon) or Perth Airport, is the largest GA field in Scotland, with three runways to play with; two hard and one grass, which is usually unavailable in the winter due to waterlogging.

Re: (Updated) Dundee Spitfires 30/8/20 & 17/9/20

I was gutted when I took the phone call saying they were going to Dundee instead of Perth. Ah well you win some, you loose some.
Nice set of pictures Baz...and nice to see things with aluminium wings instead of feathers for a change!

Perth NHS Spitfire Content into context

How to put the content into the context and not end up with the photo of the underside of a Spitfire with no relation to where it was taken... and this one was a failure. I guessed rightly the route but I cocked up on the timing and the composition, still, it's an interesting failure. For the record...

He's totally right, that old meatbox is looking a whole lot better for all your TLC. It would have rusted away by now and that's not museum's are about.

Re: A-W Meteor NF.14 WS788 Restoration Project

I too would like to see a Flea ground running, it seems like every museum has one and all too often they are ignored but he public but they did hold an important piece in the home built history of British aircraft, if not an ignominious piece.

But for now... keep on working miracles on 788 Blue! :)
