For some things, like helicopter blades, the images are generally better with a little motion blur. The shutter speed you used on these shots was fast enough to freeze the motion of the rotor blades.

G'day pm

TC is okay with shutter suggestions ... may I offer another
I find that when shooting at the sky, the meter is over-affected by the brightness of the sky, causing it to underexpose and go grey. So when I'm shooting birds or planes etc, I go to EV+1 to try to balance the exposure. Maybe this'll help with you too

Regards, Phil

Thanks for the comments, both helicopter pictures where taken into the sun hence the dark images, it will be interesting to compare when I have sun behind me with such pictures......
