Re: Anyone had good results using a sigma x2 TC??

I would get the Kenko x2TC, or send off the lens/Sigma x2tc to get recalibrated together. No reason why you shouldn't get sharp shots.

Re: Legends Flying on Saturday (UPDATED)

Fab set - the reflection in the P-40 is sublime. Also like the static of the P-40F and I have a soft spot for the classic Grumman F8F Bearcat which you have captured with some excellence :clap: :biggrin:

Re: Sizzling Sukhois at Saturday RIAT! (updated with the res

Thanks both for your C&C on the Hornet shot I agree re the noise - this one was HDR processed from a RAW file developed -1, 0, +1 exposure values (so not true HDR) although my camera decided at that moment to underexpose quite dramatically so the +1 file is actually about 2 to 3 stops from the a...

Re: Couple from Saturday Waddington.... (updated/completed)

By the way is the nose wheel of the 'Yellowjacks' Gnat at an angle in that shot? I looked at all the shots in the sequence and it does look a little angled - didn't seem to be a problem though! Here is the remainder of my pics from the show... https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3849/14595366495_01c43fe...

Re: can I access the Airshow via A15

I came up the A15 from the south and there was a sign saying go left for public parking/red route but we were directed straight on. Hit the back of the queue at 8.49am and got out of my car at 10.39am!!

Did you get the tickets? Hi Comet, I did in the end, thanks very much for your wishes of luck!! Picked them up in Peterborough this morning on the way up - was well worth the effort!! https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2929/14395640167_6ca295f94c_o.jpg _AJC0118 by andyc0001 , on Flickr Cheers Andy

Couple from Saturday Waddington.... (updated/completed)

Despite the last minute ticket hunt, the 2 hours spent in the queue to get in (only took 10 minutes to get out though!!) and the early low cloud this was a good show with highlights for me being the Swiss Hornet, the Vulcan take off and the SAAB twins! A couple for now... https://farm3.staticflickr....
