    Same day, same place

    Simple Flight

    Should I have made the wings horizontal?

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: Simple Flight

    Good composition on the first image. Nice use of first and secondary subject. I would probably blur the background a bit more.

    For the second one, keep the angle. If you make it too horizontal, you would lose the dynamism of the shot. I would actually even advise you to incline it a bit more.

    Re: Simple Flight

    thank you Jiro, I would assume just a bit would be best.

    Simple Flight

    It will take more time for the 1st pic. I have to work on that one.

    Again,

    thanks

    Re: Simple Flight

    OK, so should I worry about losing complete detail?

    Re: Simple Flight

    That is too much blur for me, Bob.

    I liked seeing the rig in the background which gave a sense of the setting. Maybe just a light pass with a low opacity Blur Brush might be worth a go.

    But the main little thing which I found slightly distracting was those two white dishes on top of the rig. Possibly communication equipment?

    I would be tempted to clone them out as I find them the most distracting of all.

    Flying birds, particularly white ones, are difficult to photograph so these are good photos.

    I also go with what Geoff has said immediately above.

    thank you gentlemen, I will give that a bit of work when I get back home. I'm really fascinated with the new lens.

    Still a work in progress, I present the latest Removed the satellite dishes at the bottom and the light at platform level.

    Simple Flight

    I tried to use a light blur, but I keep getting too much, so I reverted back to the original. Perhaps I'll play with that some more and if I'm happy I post again. Otherwise, I need more practice

    Re: Simple Flight

    The subtle changes you did added strength to the image. Nice work, Bob.
