After shooting the Blue Angels inÂ a mid-afternoon light for so many years, I thought I would try something a little different: I camped in front of Boeing FieldÂ to view ofÂ take-off and landing, and processed my favorite pix with Photomatix in single shot mode.
For comparison, below is the same shot as above converted to JPEG from Lightroom using LR’s built-in editing. (Adjustments made: slight boosts in exposure, blacks, sat, sharpening, and noise reduction.)
Of course, this could also be a testament to my post-processing LR skills, which I’m always looking to build up.
More Blue Angel shots, including some favorites over the past few years, are up in this gallery.
