    It was a bit wet yesterday at The Duxford Airspace Airshow.
    OK it was VERY wet!
    But I did get to play with my new 12-24mm Sigma WIIIIIIDDDDDDEEEE angle lens

    Photo quality isn't as good as I'd like as I had to do some playing with Levels because of the bad lighting.

    Thanks for sending your yesterday's weather eastward, i.e. to where I am now ... now I really get a feel for what it must have been like for you to be out in the open trying to photograph an airshow.

    Nevertheless, I quite like the effects you got out of your cool new wide-angle lens, like that Seaking in the first photo is really cool in this manner! :D

    I like the clouds in your Spitfire-pic, but - sorry - that's me: I look past the planes ... erm ... cough-cough. My husband would very look AT the planes, I promise. But he's not here to look (someone must earn the money for my hobby, heeheehee, oops, now I told :oops: :lol: )

    And I like thatpic of the Red Sparrows! Cute name for planes. Nice formation stands for a nice composition here!

    Cheers Corinna, to be honest I'm not really happy with any of them, but Like you I find the Spitfire the best because of the sky. I like the seaking shots BUT.... because of the difference in stops from the helicopter and the sky its just made the seaking soooo grainy :grumpy:

    I really like the Seaking...
    is that a heliocopter?
    All the pictures are nice,
    just like the clouds in the first two
    the best. They are a nice back-
    drop for the planes!

    Yeah its a mixture of rain and vapour. Its the only time I've ever seen it, it does happen on dry days if there is enough vapour in the air.

    Next Door - and I'm watching you
    Andy the light was really poor wasn't it - Hope Alex enjoyed it though would like to see some of his work from the day. That 12mm Sigma really does bring out the best in the sky - my 15mm does the same - it puts cloud where other lens can't find them - I will remind you of your promise to let me try it on the 1Ds MkII should be awlsome - not sure of the Spitfire - all prop and where did the tail go? The C130's are good, the day was made for them - those paddle propswhen set for take off really do pressure the air out to the tips - look closely at the first shot in the series and see how close the corkscrew effect of the blade are to that in the third image - it's to do with the way the prop blades bites as the speed increases - I think these would be as good as you could expect on such a day - Just one question - who is the Duck? - He's cute ain't he.:wink:
