Dutch courage

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 21 September 2017 in Transportation and Portfolio.

I didn't really get to see the Sunderland International Air Show this year (work commitments) so I only managed to catch this pair of former WWll fliers passing over the windmill at Whitburn. The sky was pretty much grey, overcast and nondescript, hence my decision to play around with this one.

Well I'm pretty close to getting my pictures processed, only 36 more to go (just like one roll of expensive Kodachrome back in the day).

FUJIFILM FinePix HS30EXR 1/340 second F/6.4 ISO 100 126 mm

This is art and it requires sacrifices to do it. It's an old truth.

I do wish you had retained the original grey ! May be the image would have been terrific...bot that this image falls short of my appreciation..Looks like war planes over a desolate area!

This is a fine capture of these two flying low over the windmill. I like your processing which I find very creative and successful.
