All taken with DRebel, 100-400L and 1.4x tc.

First, let me say that these are somewhat soft, not in real good focus and you can't see the eyes much in any of them but I wanted to post them anyhow because they are some of my best flight shots to date. I have a long way to go before reaching the talent of Normcar and a lot of others here. So be easy on me.:lol:I'm trying.

1. The take off

ISO 200, 1/1600, F8, at 235mm with tc is 329mm I think, Resized, levels, FM.

Great shots Houston, and you're exposure on those whites is pretty fine too, considering the high contrast here. Congratulations. Where there is a will...and lots of practice, there is a way, as you are quickly demonstrating.

Hi Houston - I ran that Shadow Recovery plugin from Fred Miranda that we were speaking about,just as a trial [took about 30sec], it preserves [doesn't alter]the highlights, but "recovers" shadow detail. A bit overdone here, but more for a demo of what it can do.
I've attached the editted shot, have a look and see if it's what you're looking for, personally I think it does do a great job in some instances

[Nice shots, BTW]
