    Took this 5 yrs ago by the Greenwich Observatory. The 2 stars above the open dome are actually jupiter and venus.
    Am very proud of this picture. Took it with my old Olympus E300 digital SLR camera

    Yeah it's pretty good. A DJI Phantom 2 with a go pro hero 3 black. It's pretty sweet. Would love a DJI mavic pro though but they are ££

    I love aerial photos, it is a perspective we hardly ever saw before drones.

    I think the processing of this is a little gimmicky but what the hell..

    mauvais change has become unavoidable

    It's a decent photo but the HDR is way overcooked. What's the original like?

    You've got dust on the sensor (assuming digital) too ;)

    original is crap. I've deleted it. Yeah, there is some marks on the lens. It's my brothers camera. the fool never put a lens cap on and this is the result. :rolleyes: sony a200 dslr.

    The dust is possibly on the sensor inside the camera - might be removable with a dust blower. Or the back of the lens. Generally marks on the front of the lens don't matter too much to the image as it's outside the focal plane.

    Anyway if you had chance, try stuff like gradient filters (e.g. in Lightroom) to bring something back from the sky but without pushing the image further than the data really tolerates.

    Little unsure on the hdr processing if being honest

    So, today I took this photo:
    DSCF1410w1.jpg

    I was thinking about the lines in the field. I cropped it a little to give me this below:

    But I am not happy with it.

    What would you have done? Apart from not taking it at all :)

    RoyReed Must fly!

    I prefer the first version - I like the way the line of trees at the top edge of the photo frame the green field in the distance.

    But I'd have tried a couple of different things - a vertical photo and a panorama.

    field2.jpg
    Neither of these are perfect by a long way, just a different way of thinking.

    Hi RoyReed I like the portrait orientation.

    I supposed I could have moved more to see if I could get the lines in the field to lead to something.
