    I spent Thursday & Friday last week, trying to capture the Clacton Airshow. I didn’t manage anything to the standard of many here, but I’m reasonably pleased with some of the results:

    I'm frustrated so say a decent picture of the Vulcan eluded me yet again, I doubt I'll get another chance now!

    I'd say that's a pretty nice series. I think cooling off the WB might help, as they all seem quite warm to me.

    Thanks John, I obviously rushed the processing too much. I think the warm look might have worked in the favor of the B17 shot, but it does deter from several of the others. I'll see if I can have another go at them :)

    I have to say that a bit warm or not, I love the shot of the B-17! :)

    It's weird...WB setting during processing a big batch of images can lead me to setting too cool or too warm a WB value, thinking, "This looks great!" and then I'll apply that WB to a whole mess of images, then I'll come back the next day and open up the software, and sometimes I say to myself, "What the heck was I thinking? These look crazy!" lol. Not saying that's what you did, but sometimes I think I suffer from a WB adaptation...like the garbage man/sanitation worker who says, "Smell? What smell? I don't smell anything bad, it's just trash!" lol

    Love the B-17! The sheer menacing looks of that aircraft's industrial design is a thing of beauty.
